    Slx rear derrailieur issue help

    Hey guys just got a new SLX rear derailleur (9spd model) for my hardtail and I just tried installing it and ran into the oddest issue in that when i try to put the chain through the lower jockey wheel and through the cage and it wont fit through between the jockey wheel and lower cage lip which wraps around.

    I'm just wondering if its worth just filing that little bit off so the chain will fit through or buy another though given the fact this one took nearly a week to arrive due to postage issues id like to avoid that if at all possible.

    Any help would be appreciated first time I've ran into an issue like this.

    SLX Shadow's have a funky routing, I remember someone else posting the same a while back and mention of getting out the dremel. Confused me too when I got one, still does sometimes.
