Numbskull here needs help with Di2 Road and XTR cassette.

Especially for light weight issues concerning cyclocross / touring bikes & parts.

Have another question...would I have an issue just using an XT/XTR 11-40 cassette with my 6800 GS mech?
you can get upper jockey wheel clearance with a road link for sure and maybe by reversing/getting a longer b-screw. however this does not solve the derailleur capacity issue (cage length). i've run 46-36 x 11-40 with a road link and shifting was pretty good; a bit sloppy going onto the 11. you can also change out the cage with some of the 10 speed mtb derailleurs.
