Sram mix up, components not working

Hi all

I recently changed most of my Sram components on my Orange Pro RX9 Gravel bike 1 * 11 speed setup (it was at the beginning an Apex 1*11 setup)
I now have added :
New
Cassette SRAM XX1 XG-1199 10-42 TECHNOLOGY XG (Before it was a NX / APEX PG-1130 11 VITESSES - 11-42t PG 560 gms TECHNOLOGY PG)
Derailleur Sram Force 1 Type 3.0 11v Noir Long chappe CABLE PULL RATIO Exact actuation (Before it was a Apex RD-APX-1-A1 CABLE PULL RATIO Exact actuation)
SRAM Chaine X1 11 Vitesses (Not sure what chain it was before)

Original, not changed yet....
Front lever Apex SB-APX-B1

The gear changes are far from optimal, so I guess I've got one or more wrong components somewhere,
I'm fairly sure it's the cassette, Possibly because it's a XG and the rest is PG.....am I right thinking this ?
If so what cassette can I use, must I reinstall a CS-PG-1130-A1 (It weighs in at 540 gms that's why I changed it, but if I right I might have to re buy it again, as there aren't many 10-42T cassettes from Sram)[img]data:image/gif;base64,R0lGODlhAQABAIAAAAAAAP///yH5BAEAAAAALAAAAAABAAEAAAIBRAA7[/img]

I'm used to Shimano on my MTB everything just works, whatever the model, but with Sram, I can't seem to get the right parts together, many thanks

Hoping someone can clear things up for me
Thanks

Did you change the freehub body to an XD driver? The XX1 cassette requires an XD driver freehub body, where the old cassette fits on a standard Shimano compatible freehub body. They are not interchangeable without changing the freehub body or wheel.

Those components should all work together, if you have them adjusted properly. Do you know how to properly set the limits and the B-tension screw on the derailleur?

Hi, sorry for the late reply, I was away, Yes I have an XD driver hub,

So maybe it is just the B-tension screw, tomorrow I'll double check that

Thanks

Update, I feel quite dopey.... as I checked the B tension and it was way off, Now all is pretty dammed good

Many thanks, I should have known, just didn't check that
