I took my hyperglide casstte off last night, the smallest cog has play when the lock ring is tightened. I believe i should have a spacer? which is missing or worn away? anyone have experience of this? and if so can I get a replacement? cheers

I have also just removed a 7 speed hyperglide cassette and that contained two very thin spacers – one between the main block and the two loose cogs and one behind the largest cog (not a 7-8 speed spacer)

Not sue of spares – hope this helps?

I think how many loose cogs depends on the model of cassette. i have an HG 50 7sp with one lose and an XT 7 sp with 2 loose as letmetalk to mark described.

As for spacers, ask at your local bike shop, they always manage to find me something in the bits box.

If it is just a littel bitof play, I think you're missing a flat black ring, this very tiny image:

Edit: I think this is more helpful:

Ask your LBS, maybe he has got one somewhere. Don't know the name.
