Converting my bike 1X9 and i see that a short or mid cage rear derailleur is more effective with out dropping the chain. Can I convert my long cage derailleur to a short cage or do I need to get an entire new derailleur?

As far as I know (but I'm not 100% on this) the only difference is the idler cage assembly, so if you can find one, you can make the change. To be 100% sure call the SRAM consumer tech support line and ask the same question.

BTW- if you end up speaking to Ed Nasjletti tell him Francis in NY says hello.
