I think I got my spacers on wrong when I changed my tires. Can some one post a pic of the wheel spacers on a '01 YZ 426? Sitting on the bike the r-one with the groove, does the groove go close to the hub or the outside towrds the wheel? And the one on the brake side, does the the part that flares up go towards the hub or brake rotor??:smirk:

The straight spacer goes on the right side. One end should be significantly cleaner than the other from having been under the seal; put it back that way.

The flared spacer really should be a lot more obvious. It goes on the left, and the big end goes against the fork. It couldn't very well be turned over without mashing the seal, now, could it?

Gray, when you say left side on the straight spacer do you mean opposite of the rotor?:smirk: Exuse me for being a noob! :cheers: Also my straight spacer has a grove all they way around on one end. Does that end go towards the hub and seal??:smirk:

Sorry, I had my shirt on inside out when I said left and right (corrected).

Right side is where the straight spacer goes.

Isn't one end of the straight spacer cleaner than the other?

If the groove is a smooth, polished track worn there by the seal, that's the end the goes under the seal. If it's a machined groove, it has to be placed where the seal won't run in it. Otherwise, I doubt that it matters much.
