I've setup 42t front and 11-46 rear on my new bike

The chain is huge and as a result it sounds a little rough on the 11t so im wondering if a wolftooth goatlink 11 might help?

Im using a xt di2 rear derraileur

That derailleur is made for that cassette.

but does moving the rd 1cm or so back improve shifting/chain position?

I think a goatlink would just make the gearing worse. That's what I noticed with a Roadlink on my Red Etap setup.

I'm running a similar setup with the wolflink on my 1x Di2 Open UP. I use a 10-42 rear cassette though. I didn't try this setup without the wolflink though so I can't say how much it changes the noise. My setup shifts great and I've been very happy with it.

Which crankset, chainrings and BB do you use?

Yeah standard big big measurement for the chain

I went for my first proper ride today and noticed that 1 random cassette cog is also bit jumpy
Its a ztto 11-46 cassette so could actually be the cassette

I have a 46t front arriving in a couple of days I can pair with a 11-42
Chain length should be the same so I should be able to compare shift quality pretty quickly

I run an Easton EC90 SL with a wheels mfg bottom bracket. The rings I’ve used are the 40 and 44 tooth Easton’s.

Thanks!
And do you use an Ultegra RX (with the Roadlink?) or a XT/XTR derailleur?

Bit of a late reply but i've got my wolflink and also tried using a shimano 11-42 cassette

I've narrowed it down to the ztto cassette being the problem - it just doesnt shift nicely onto the 11 tooth
