SOURCE: rear wheel spacer placement?

Take great care on reassembly ,as the spacers may be of diffrent lenghts which will if put back wrongly will throw the wheel off its true running centre .and cause problems .Allway remember to mark parts or do a drawing when removing and stripping down for repair or servicing ..It saves a great deal of problems .Try and assemble the spacers and look to see if the wheel is in line with the belt drives .

SOURCE: what is the sequence of putting spacers on rear

Not much on newer hogs but I'd guess if the spacers aren't the same length when you got the wheel on you'd see that the wheel isn't centered.Try again.Put the end thru the swing arm put on a spacer,push it thru the hub,put on the other spacer,push it thru swing arm put on washers and nut[loosely]and check the alaignment.Like I said I'm not much.

SOURCE: i need to know rear wheel spacer placement. also

The wheel not being equally spaced under the fender is typical of all Softail motorcycles. They have an "offset" wheel stance. I don't know exactly why but they are designed this way.

The three spacers you are talking about is actually one spacer and two seal races. The two seal races go into the wheel bearing seals on either side of the wheel. This provides a smooth finish for the wheel bearing seals to ride on. The other "spacer" is a bit larger and goes on the belt side of the wheel and the rear brake caliper bracket acts as the spacer on the other side. Anytime you take the wheels off your bike, always mark and make a drawing of the positions of the spacers.

Good Luck
Steve

There is an exploded view drawing here. Take a look at it and see if you can determine which is the spacer and where it goes. I hope it helps.

I got a 1998 Nissan Pathfinder what size wheel spacers do I need to put aftermarket rims on it


1. You don't need wheel spacers for aftermarket wheels for your vehicle. Who told you did? There are a large number of wheels that will fit straight onto the vehicle and will clear the brakes no problem.

2. You will need hub centric rings with many wheels so that the wheel fits flush onto the hub mounting . The wheel dealers will provide you with the correct size hub rings when you purchase the wheels. The hub rings snap into the wheel center and are fitted to the back side of the wheel center.
What is hub centric ring

3. You need to ensure you use a wheel that is a compatible/suitable offset so that the wheel and tire will not sit too far inside the wheel well so you have sufficient inside clearance as well as sufficient clearance for the brakes. In other words suitable clearance inside and outside. If you are looking at certain wheels that will require a wheel spacer to clear your brakes you are looking at the wrong product and an unsuitable fitment for your Nissan.

The 13" size is for the set of rims. The dimension is 13×5.5J so the tyre size is the issue here. I don't want my fenders to be in the way when fully turning or driving over speed humps.


If you want to protect your car wheels, then you have to use wheel spacers & adapters for it. Most probably I used wheel spacers for my wheel from customadeonly.com.

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
