Dura Ace G and T-pulleys


On the shimano FAQ pages I read an article about the difference between G and T-pulleys on rear derailleurs.

(link :

I have analysed my Dura-Ace and found that my T-pully is the one that has some sideplay and not the G-pulley as it schould be. Therefore the derailleur works better when using the T-pulley to guide the chain straight under the cassettesprocket.

Am I wrong or is it the shimano doc that is in error.

thanks for any tip

on Shimano derailers, the TOP pulley is the one with the lateral or side to side play.
