I'm having a little trouble with this RD 2500 - when shifting to the 14T the chain often doesn't run smoothly on the upper jockey wheel.

Is it due to a bent hanger? It doesn't look quite straight to me.

Any tips?

In the 14T

And the 17T

Certainly looks like a tweaked hanger to me. Get it straightened and ride on.
