    XTR 975 Rear Der. can't get High gear.

    Put my chain on last night but couldn't get the derailleur to go all the way down to 9th gear. I could adjust so I could get it in, then I couldn't get the lowest gears. What am I doing wrong? I have the new DCL shifters as well.

    A few basic inquisition questions to start... high or low normal rear derailleur?

    By 9th gear do you mean biggest cog or smallest cog?

    Which chainring are you in in the front when trying the tests?

    Which crankset are you running and what chainline (48mm, 49mm or 50mm?)

    Are the limit screws set up correctly?

    Have you been able to verify that the shifter is actually in the "no cable tension" position when you clamp the cable in the derailleur?

    Don't know
    Yes, in low gear. I just pulled on the cable by hand and tightened it.
