    Cassette installation question

    I'm getting ready to install my new XTR 8-sp cassette on my new XT/Mavic rear wheel, do I need to install the clear plastic piece like my OEM wheels had between the cassette and spokes? Not sure what it is called or if it is even necessary. Thanks for any info you can provide.

    That's a spoke protector. You don't need it so long as the low limit screw on your derailleur is adjusted correctly.
