Anyone know if the cages can be swapped between the levels of Shimano derailleurs?
I have an XTR 9100 GS, but want to put a SGS cage on ( and change cassette ).
Can't buy just the cages right now (out of stock everywhere) BUT a new Deore RD is only $55 or so ... could I take the SGS cage off the Deore and put it on the XTR? Seems like it ... but....

The cage from the RD-M8100 SGS is listed as compatible with the RD-M9100 SGS.
And the cage from the RD-M6100 SGS is listed as compatible with the RD-M7100 SGS, unfortunately the RD-M7100 SGS lacks the compatibility columns with the RD-M8100, so unless you ask Shimano directly you can only go by trial and error.
I had a similar dilemma, but I wanted to swap the SGS cafe from my M7100 with the GS cage of a M8100/M9100, but I decided to wait for the cage so get damaged before I try any swap.
