Clutch Mech Problems
Got an XT clutch mech that has been great, but all of a sudden the switch didn’t do anything (it was really easy to turn between the on and off positions, and didn’t affect the tension at all).
I took it apart and tightened up the tension screw thing as tight as it would go, and now there is resistance switching the clutch switch to the on position, but still there’s no more tension in the mech than that of a normal mech.
It looks to me like the band that goes around the clutch isn’t actually providing any friction, even when tightened by the cam thing. Had a look on the internet but can’t find anything similar, it seems quite weird.
Mech still works perfectly as a normal mech, but it’s just really annoying to have to go back to the noise of chain slap, so would really appreciate any ideas.Posted 4 years agoOscillate WildlyMember

Quickly skimmed that and I think it’s just some people wrecking their drivetrain by using the wrong cage length or chain length.
I’ve got no axe to grind, I have Sram X9 on one bike and Shimano XT/XTR on the other and there’s nothing really to choose between them. Just tired of Shimano fanbois everywhere and thought I’d put the cat amongst the pigeons a bit (OK, some might call it ‘trolling’)Posted 4 years ago
