I have the Shimano Caius and am missing one the reel grip caps (I guess I'll call it that) which covers the screw down in the grip.  Someone have a line on where i can get one?

 

 

Thanks

On the JDM websites, they are called knob caps.

On the Shimano Website it says that you need to buy a complete handle assembly and it's discontinued. The Curado 50E knob seals are 99 cents apiece and the part# is 4150. Last time I bought from Shimano, the shipping charge was a flat rate of $6.00.

Call Shimano. Tell them your Caius is missing one of the knob caps and they will probably send it to you for free.

Shimanos customer service is not what it used to be, I doubt they will send you one free of charge.

I have some of those caps and would be happy to send you one for free. Message me your address and I'll stick one in the mail.

I find their customer service either a hit or miss depending on the rep you get on the phone. I always have to call to place an order because they don't offer shipping to Canada from the website. I noticed that their shipping charge also went from $3 to $6.

I am not upset about them raising their shipping costs. Every time they send me something, it's in a box and it shipped via UPS. There is no way they can ship from California to Florida for three bucks and I don't expect them to lose money on me.

I don't mind shipping charges. I just wish they had the part's I need in stock, especially for reels still in production. Seems like every time I need a part it's out of stock and I have to go searching.
