Possibly a spacer issue.

Take axel out and check it is clean and straight

Check the wheelbearings are still good .

check the spacers insde the bearings and outside the bearings are good

torque the axel nut to correct spec.

I am with WRWEST and think it might be a spacer issue but could be over torqued axle. For my 2007 Wr450 the manual says it should be 90 foot pounds.
