    derailleur setup assistance required

    right, i've set my XX1 derailleur up and it changes up the cassette (from small cogs to large cogs) lovely and smooth but only if i go one click at a time on the shifter.

    if i'm on the middle of the cassette and want to push on to the biggest cog, so jumping 5 at once (the shifter will do 5 at once), then top jockey wheel of the derailleur fouls the cassette...

    what's causing this?

    i've adjusted the derailleur correctly and set the correct distances on the jockey wheel when on both the large and small cog as per the hand book.

    could the chain be too short?

    Did you follow the instructions for chain length?

    I'd probably avoid going up 5 gears at a shot. Maybe limit yourself to 2 or 3 at the most.

    i did follow the guidance, which made the chain shorter than i normally would..

    i was taught that to set chain length, wrap the chain around the largest rear cog and the largest front cog, pull the chain tight and add 2 links (if that makes sense?!)

    well in the hand book for this it says to add 1 link....

    How is the clearance between the upper jockey pulley and the cassette? Set to proper spacing?

    I'd recheck everything first, just to make sure you didn't miss something.
