Rear wheel spacer? Brain check!

5 posts in this topic

Alright, what gives? Is this just me? I had my bike apart to replace 4th gear. While it was down I had it powder coated. I was putting the rear wheel on (new bearings) and it seems like there is a spacer missing? There is about a 3/4 inch gap on the swingarm from the spacers. Is that much spring normal or am I missing somthing? It seems odd to me for some reason. I need a second opinion. I think I just never noticed this before. Thanks, ---Mike

Chain gauges on? They're only maybe 1/4 inch thick tho.

And are the bearings seated properly?

Brake assy. takes up some room on the axle too. I forgot to put that on once. :)
