Does the stroke have one or two spacers on the front wheel
Was kind of in a hurry taking front wheel off this afternoon for a tire change
and went to the bike shop where they pointed there was only one spacer
in the front wheel? Thought it may have dropped off on the way to the shop or the front axle acts as the other spacer on wheel.
I know this is a pretty dumb question but my shop
manual hasnt arrived yet

Support the motorcycle with the front wheel off the ground.
Remove the caliper mounting bolts and remove the caliper
Place a plastic or wooden spacer between the brake pads in place of the disc. Then, if the brake lever is inadvertently applied, the pistons will not be forced out of the caliper.If the pistons are forced out, disassemble the caliper to reseat the pistons.
Insert a drift or screwdriver through the front axle hole on the right side to prevent it from rotating.
Loosen and remove only the left side axle nut.
On the right side, loosen the fork slider axle clamp nuts
Prior to removing the front axle, note the location of
the right side spacer and left side spacer. The spacers must
be reinstalled on the correct sides during installation.
Withdraw the front axle from the fork sliders and front wheel.
hi, i am fairly sure that only 1 spacer is fitted to the 1098r and the righthand side spacer is infact part of the wheel spindle, you could insert the spindle in the forks all the way, including the spacer on the left hand side and measure the gap between the spacer and the spindle end on the r/hand side, then insert a screwdriver or a length of wire through the wheel to measure the width at this point, from the 2 measurements you will work out if infact you need a spacer, hope this helps, paul
you need to raise front wheel from ground with hoist or stand remove brake calliper bolts and then twist callipers on disc to push pads back so that you can remove callipers. loosen pinch bolts on one fork leg then undo axle nut ( large allan bolt) loosen other pinch bolts on other leg and remove axle and spacers/speedo drive and the wheel. take note where spacers go and also make sure to line up speedo drive tangs correctly when refitting wheel in reverse order to taking apart.
If you have no idea where the spacers went ,then try them on any way ,You will know if they are in the right position as the disc break will only line up one way .and when you spin the wheel it should run fairly free .If it binds then its not right .
Hi ...... I dont have experience of this particular model but something is def'ly wrong with the set-up as you have it.Take it apart and apply the brake with the disc in the caliper (support wheel on blocks/bricks whatever) and the put spindle through the wheel. This will show you the wheel 'centred' and give an indication which spacers you have go where. Only other thing you might have done is placed the speedo drive into the wheel without engaging correctly. Disconect at the clock/speedo and whilst spinning the wheel look to see if the cable is turning OK.
Good Luck ........... any problems let us know.
