    No mention of what to do now that the cassette is off... Filing down the top of the freehub splines where material was pushed upward (from the cassette digging in) will help with re-installing the cassette immensely, as well as allow the cassette to slide back off again much more easily the next time around.

    Good tip Todd. Filing down the damaged splines is an important step when installing a cassette on a damaged freehub body.
