Why is there paper washers between the front wheel and brake discs on the CBR 600 F2? Do they really need to be there? Could I make my own with index card paper. OEM suppliers list them at $3.00 each or $3.00 for 12, I cant tell. There is a 12 in the little box beside the price. Does that mean I need 12 (which I know) or thats the price for 12 of them? I wouldnt think they would be $3 each for Christ sake but you never know. I asked this question on another forum and everyone seems to think it doesnt matter if they are there or not. And I did search both sites for a couple hours before posting this question. Thanks.
