loose cogs on SRAM cassette

I have an SRAM PG-980 cassette that i'm putting on a Mavic Crossride disc wheel.

I have tightened the lock ring all the way but the 11t gear is not pressing onto the larger cogs to keep them secure, the result is that they are free to jingle-jangle about on the cassette body.

any similar experiences or advice?

1- Are you sure you have all the rings and spacers on there?

if yes,

sometimes you need to put a small spacer on the free hub before you put the cassette on. I don't know why, but I have had it happen to me before on an american classic hub years back.

and I have had it happen with road hubs also on occasion

This probably wont' fix your problem but it might not be a bad idea to try anyway...take the cassette off and tighten the bolt on the back side it. These will slowly loosen over time and allow for some play.

The Crossride rear wheel has an "inner spacer" or ring that goes on before the cassette. I had one.

If that doesn't work, a lower line (PG970 or so) cassette spacer will do the trick. (just a theory, not tested)
