    band height range for FD-986?

    So I STILL haven't received my tech book from Shimano...it's only been three years of asking.

    Can anyone post the derailleur band height range for the FD-986? Did they stay consistent with 120-150 through the range of 2x cranks?

    Thanks!

    The height is the same as 2X and 3X. I don't have the exact number in front of me, but I think it's about 155 mm. I have been checking both 2X and 3X XTR cranks and front derailleur on my current build.

    The answer is in the service info online: http://techdocs.shimano.com/media/te...9830726458.PDF

    I don't think the answer is there for the derailleur I referenced. It is there for the direct mount, and there's some info about spacer swapping for the E type 2, but nothing for a standard band type derailleur.

    BTW, 155.5mm is for the DM.
