Looking to replace 11-34 cassette by 11-40 and reckon I will need a rear mech hanger to clear the cassette. Obviously this moves the mech down

Has anyone done this, if so, was the gear cable too short?

It is SRAM X0 using a full length gear cable outer and it looks like I may get away with moving the cable tie holding it to the chainstay, assuming the new angle of entry does not affect shifting.
