Should I take a link out of the chain? Seems to drop down a gear through the rough downhill sections then changes back up when I get on the gas.

Before you do, check it out in the granny gear at full compression... Sometimes ledgy/steppy stuff in the granny will use more travel than you expect and you don't want to bind the suspension up with the chain.

clutch is weak, its luck a thing, some are tight some are loose out of the box. mine GX that came with the bike were ok. the new one i replaced it with slappy slap slap on the 2nd week, even drop the chain and scratch my frame last week :mad:
much prefer the type 2.1 clutch of the 11 spd that you can remove the pin, open the cover and tighten it, it does groan with suspension compression for a bit then quiet down as it "wear" in.

Use an XT M8000 instead. You’re welcome.

Hurts. Requires Money. And is nerdy.
Shift much better than the price would have you believe.
Good shifting feel comes from the shifter tbh, unless you ruin it by running cheap sram derailleurs. The shit thing is GX ain’t cheap, but it’s so bad.
