I just got new XT brakes (BL-M785-B-L/BR-M785L - I-spec B compatible), and was planning to use this bracket that came with my XTR shifter (SL-M980) I bought in late 2013 to mount the shifter to the brakes.
Of course (I now learn), I-spec A and I-spec B are two different things, but this little bracket in the photo doesn't even appear to be an I-spec part.
What the heck is this part that came with my SL-M980?
What are my options? I think I'd need a SM-SL98B, but that seems ridiculous - is this really the only way to I-spec-B mount an XTR shifter that wasn't purchased as I-spec (it's a bar mount)?
