    Chris King hub issue

    I have an XT 1◊11 cassette and drivetrain on a stainless king non boost hub that keeps spinning with a horrible chattering noise in the top two cogs of the cassette.

    Itís like the cassette is twisting on the freehub body. Could it be wear to the spline in the hub body? Wear to the spline on the freehub? King hubs donít use pawls do they?

    Last time something like this happened, the pawls were collapsing in my shimano parallax hub.

    Thereís a video here *https://youtu.be/bZliccq1YZw

    Obviously itís not too easy to see but I figured it was better than nothing.

    You my need to adjust the bearing preload. Just tighten down on the collar on the axel. It sets the bearing preload and holds the freehub body in place.
