I was installing my old tiagra cassette on my new ksyrium equipe wheels and noticed there was a small plastic spacer at the end (similar to the ones between cogs in the cassette) should I take it out or leave it there?

cheers,
Gabriel

    I'm not up on ShameOnYou kit, but I believe it is for use with a ten-speed cassette which is narrower than the nine.

    so, do you think I should remove it for my 9spd Tiagra? :)

    anyone else, I want to be sure, got a 70 mile ride tomorrow and don't want my shifting to be all over the place! :lol: :shock:

    Leave it on. Mavic's Shimano spline wheels use an extra spacer, which is the one you've found.
