    shifted shifter off the bike...

    I just received a used SRAM X01 Eagle derailleur and shifter. I accidentally hit the paddle and advanced the shifter and it won't shift back. Is this normal or are things out of sync now? When I go to set the drivetrain up will I be able to shift the derailleur back to the highest gear once the cable is tensioned?

    it's fine a cable needs to be installed and tensioned to
    make the guts work all the way when not on an actual bike


    stick a cable in there and tug on it and you should be able to go through
    all the gears by hand
