When you move the brake levers from left to right, you notice there is an amount of play in the pivot point at the top of the lever.
Is this kind of play still there on the newer Force shifters? Or is there a way to remove the play?
Now i have the opportunity to buy a 2011 pair of sram Rival shifters, which have only 200 kilometers. Should it be an improvement over first generation Force?
Anybody have any ideas on the newer stuff for the op's question and mine?

I guess you if you could find a c-clip that fit the diameter of the lever pin, you could theoretically use that to take up the space between the lever body and the housing. But I do not know how you would get rid of the lateral play without adversely affecting braking and lever return. I'd wager that if you eliminated the slack by some mechanical means that you could also run the risk of catastrophic failure of the lever housing at the pivot point, but that's just my hypothesis and best left to engineers.
Can I ask why it's such a big deal to "fix" this?
FORCE has been "functional" and reliable for me, but I feel like I am shifting a John Deere tractor.
I might just end up waiting until Dura Ace 11 speed comes out.

No it isn't another topic. My left brake lever squaks ^^
