Re: Wheel Spacer Problem
bladeracer - thanks for the fiche i went online and looked at it but couldn't discern which is which with any certainty. Chain is tensioned properly and rear wheel is well within .5mm of alignment.
Cromag - 80psi a pirelli might pop at that pressure. no, im at my happy street 38psi. correct the spacer on front forks left side (if sitting on bike) actually butts up against the axel bolt head, and goes into the recieving end of the fork. other side only fits there.
sscottab - looked at it and noticed, if they were swapped to either side they wouldnt make a huge difference in the distance between the rotor and the mounting bracket for the rear caliper.
so looking at my rear wheel from behind the bike, the right side spacer is the top-hat style butting up against the rear brake mount. on the left side is the standard cylindrical spacer.
