Front wheel spacers
on: March 11, 2013, 09:12:56 AM
Popped out the front wheel over the weekend for some new boots ( and very nice they are too, TR91) and paid absolutely no attention to the fact that the wheel spacers are of a slightly different thickness :157:.

It seems to make sense that the thicker of the two is on the right (ABS) side but I thought I'd just check here to see if anyone knows for certain. A bit of piece of mind and all that  :084:

As far as I can see it is the right one which is the thicker one.

Thanks for that. It's a bit annoying that the manual is very descriptive about how to remove and replace the front wheel which is all pretty obvious but makes no mention about which side the spacers go. :009:

I thought it must be right otherwise there would be very close clearance issues with the ABS censor but I just wanted to check. Not being a 1000% confident the front wheel is installed properly is not good for riding   piece of mind:169:

Who needs a Haynes manual when you've got a 'Moli'!

Great picture Moli. :028:
