Switch between 11-25 and 11-32 cassettes

Hi,

Grateful if somebody confirms the following:
I intend to accommodate a SRAM Force 22 wifli rear derailleur (see below link), with a new chain, a new SRAM cassete of 11-32 (11 cogs) and SRAM 52/36 chain rings.
https://www.bike-components.de/en/SR...illeur-p38795/

The question is: will this setup allow me to switch between 11-32 and 11-25 cassettes whenever I need, without any other tweaking of the system?

Thanks

Bikes: '96 Litespeed Catalyst, '05 Litespeed Firenze, '06 Litespeed Tuscany, '20 Surly Midnight Special, All are 3x10. It is hilly around here!

If your chain is long enough to allow you to shift into the big-big (52x32) combination and your rear derailleur will wrap up enough chain to allow small-small (36x11) then it will work fine with the 12x25 cassette. However, some minor tweaking of the shift cable tension and perhaps of the limit screws may be needed to account for tolerances in the cog spacing between the two cassettes. Typically even if you replace a cassette with an identically configured one some minor adjustments are needed.
