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. nmPaul

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.
As long as you know the correct size, rubber,metal,plastic mightPaul

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.
Yep, it ain't rubberpmf1

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.
Try a BB spacerAaronL

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?
