Loose Cassette - Shimano 10 speed

Hi,

I have Shimano 105 10 speed hub (FH-5600), with a "virtually new" Ultegra 10 speed cassette. I used the lock ring that came on on the freehub and I've done that up reasonably tight.

Should that hold the bits of the cassette fully tight? I can wiggle the cogs a little, which shows that the lock ring has bottomed onto something before it clamps the cogs. I'm just wondering whether I've got a spacer missing, or something else awry.

Thanks in advance, Tony S

It shouldn't move at all, thin spacer first then the cogs make sure they are in correctly with spacers in between each.

Yes, you need the Shimano spacer at the back of the cassette that should have come with the cassette. It is important for all of the cogs to fit tightly on the freehub. Loose cogs can damage the freehub.
The recommended torque is shown on the lockring.

Thanks a million. Second-hand cassette, and it sounds like that spacer is missing. I can't remember, so I'll check this weekend.

Three replies in 20 minutes. That's brilliant.
