hope someone can help me, ive replaced my rear mech from a sram to a 952 xtr 9speed,new inner and outer cables. all set right but it skips sometime, with the sram rear mech it was fine iam just wondering if its a compatability issue with the sram shifters, as ive set up many bikes but this issue is a odd one.

from what I recall, Sram Shifters are not compatable with Shimano - rear der only. Unless you have Sram Attack shifters...

Sram and Shimano derailleur (mech to the brits) systems are not compatible. Shimano cable pull ratios are 1:1 while sram are 2:1, so your current arrangement should shift almost two gears per click.

Sram offers 1:1 shifters made for Shimano, or you can buy original Shimano, but as things stand now, you'll have to change either the RD, or the shifters to match each other.

im pretty sure you have that backwards. SRAM is 1:1, shimano is 2:1
