    Settting Up an Eagle xx1 RD
    So everything ended up fine...

    But the SAM online instructions appear to be wrong

    When you set the B Screw with red guage you have to have the chain installed, and the bike at full sag...

    The pictures omit the chain...so basically I had to do it twice...

    Followed a youtube video the second time around

    I seen the greyed in incomplete chain....(Used the coloured pictures from the SRAM site)

    They never say or show or indicate a real chain is required to be installed prior to this step.

    If you followed the directions...

    https://sram-cdn-pull-zone-gsdesign....ser_manual.pdf

    Page 8 -13 tells you how to size the chain for FS rigs
    Page 14 tells you shift the chain into the largest cog with the bike sagged into it's travel, before setting the chain gap.

    Seems pretty clear.

    You make my point???

    The directions are not clear and specific...

    That iOS why the youtube worked....I just followed the mechanics steps.

    Why would you follow steps 8-13 only to remove the chain for step 14. Step 14 tells you to shift the chain into the largest cog with the bike sagged "before setting chain gap".

    Again, I'm not sure where you got lost. The directions are pretty clear.
