    Master Link for a Shimano XTR CN-M980 HG-X 10 Speed Chain?

    I was told KMC Master Links are compatible on Shimano and found this to be true on XT chain

    When I installed a Shimano XTR CN-M980 HG-X 10 Speed Chain on my 2x10 Niner Jet 9 RDO and tried to use the 10-speed KMC Master Link I found the XTR to not take it at all and had the chain skipping through the RD and cassette.

    So, KMC Master Link not compatible with Shimano XTR CN-M980 HG-X 10 Speed Chain?

    Is there a compatible master link for a Shimano XTR CN-M980 HG-X 10 Speed Chain?

    Have you tried a Connex 10 speed connector?

    I discovered the XTR chain I was trying to install master link to had a defect. The new one took a KMC Master link no problem.

    Same here, no issues with a 10 speed Shimano XTR chain + KMC link.

    I used the SRAM 9 speed link and it works perfectly. The 10 speed wouldn't work for some odd reason.
