Sheesh, before saying that check out all the guides on chain length, big/big plus one pair of links, that looks spot on in big/big......

Chain length is good (and as per photos), it was checked as per most guides and was already set at Big, Big plus 2 links. No need to argue anymore on chain length.

My LBS gave the grace of a quick 5 min check on the stops and feel they are pretty good as I have got them and suggested I look else where on the setup or pay them silly money to reset the whole lot. I am goona strip it all out give it another deep clean and reset it again as the chain still comes off.

If its set up correctly then the high stop is a back up preventing mech meeting spokes rather than an essential part of the indexing process.

But if the high stop is set right it should also stop the mech overshifting the chain behind the cassette.
