Just snagged an XO rear mech and XO shifters finally. Will replace the x7 shifters and X9 rear mech on my s works
three little problems i've come up against
1) the lower jockey wheel on the new mech is very worn - could i simply swop in the jockeys off my x9 mech?
2) the aluminium closing cap on the x0 shifters on one side isn't screwing in properly and i'm paranoid about stripping the threads - any tips?
3) I'm not 100% sure i should be using a short cage mech (the new one is) Could i get a longer cage for it? easy to come by?
As far as I know the jockey wheels are different between X0 & X9, so not interchangeable
Do you mean the big silver screw on the shifter? checked the threads are OK? Not cross threaded is it? Not had any problems with these yet myself.
What chainset & cassette ratio's are you using? Is the mech super short, or medium, both come with carbon cages
Don't think it's worthwhile financially swapping cages over that's if you can do it & if the parts are not eye wateringly expensive if they are available. I can check later if Fisher have stock of them
