    The bottom jockey wheel can be replaced with a shimano one – the top one must be an x9 one unfortunately. I am using a Hone bottom wheel of crc for £3

    cheers guys. Is the bottom one that’s worn, so will try the Hone route.

    x7 no

    Why not?

    I’ve done it. The mech died before I had a chance to prove it but I hoped the X7 bushes would last longer than the roller ball bearings from the X9 (as well as being cheaper).

    Where’s the cheapest place to get replacements? Will those for an X7 fit?

    If it has seized, try pulling the old one apart and repacking it with grease first, just in case you haven’t already.

    Second that.
    Avoid the Tacx ones as well, how they get away with claiming they fit a Sram mech I don’t know!

    Stick to genuine Sram to get the JW with eccentric mounting you will need for the guide pulley. Just don’t bin the metal mounting parts from the X9 if you do try to fit X7 JWs. Otherwise you will need to open out the holes in the X7 ones, no drama, just can be avoided.

    Ooops sorry missed the X7 part, it does say on dot bike not for X8, X7. I’ll keep it to myself next time……
