I am in the process of putting a new X9 rear derailleur on my bike and have found there is a small amount of float once the derailleur is bolted up as the bolt is not threaded all the way to the end. I assume this is not normal (first SRAM derailleur) and that I just need a washer to take up the slack between the derailleur and the hanger?

Cheers

Don't shim it

It is in the design of the sram derailleurs, they don't have a floating upper pulley. The whole derailleur floats instead. Just bolt it on and experience the best shifting you will have seen to date. :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
