|If it is the black disc behind the cassette that you are aksing about, it is a spoke protector. As long as your rear der is set correctly there is no reason for it.|

|its to make sure the chain doesn't fall into the spokes. I took mine off. As long as you have a properly adjusted derailleur, I wouldn't worry about it.|
|You will need the metal spacer for Shimano cassette. nm||Paul|

|What you need is the rubber washer which provides the spacing on the inside of the freehub body for the correct positioning of the Shimano cassette.|

|work. But without it, can't tighten the cassette down on the free hub. He should have gotten the metal washer, if not, then he has a problem.|

|I always worry about losing the damn thing when I swap cassettes. I doubt rubber would work, it would compress.
You might try a cassette cog spacer -- you know, those aluminium rings in between cogs on Shimano cassettes. I'd guess that Mavic probably sells spares for a reasonable price.

|I used a bb spacer that was 1mm and I ground it down to about .5mm. A lot of work, but it works just fine.
Does Mavic make that spacer?
