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: 2004 flhrci, no break lights,

You need to check to see if you have power to the brake light circuit. Locate the rear master cylinder and follow the metal tube back towards the rear wheel. At some point in the line, you'll find a pressure switch. This is your rear brake light switch, the device that turns you brake light on when you press the rear brake. You'll need a test light to test the switch. First, find the "hot" wire. There are two "flag terminals" with usually two wires each on them. One of them should be "hot" with the switch on. When you depress the foot brake or pull the hand brake, the other terminal should got "hot' as well. If you don't have power to the switch at either terminal, you'll need a schematic to trace the wiring back to find the problem. I do not have a schematic for your bike nor one even close to it. You'll have to purchase a service manual to get one.

Now we've already found the rear brake light switch. If it's bad, simply screw that one out and screw another one in. No problem. The front brake light switch is not that simple. It's located in the rgiht handlebar switch housing. This means you must seperate the housing, remove the throttle cables and grip assembly, and locate the switch. When you replace the switch, you'll have to desolder the wires running to it and resolder them to the new switch. Then put everything back together being careful not to pinch a wire in the switch halves. Readjust the throttle cables.

Good luck

Installing front and rear axles

More information is required. It is quite simple to install and axle because all you need to do is to push it in through the fork leg or the swing arm, spacers etc and out the other side and install the washers and nuts and torque them so it appears you want more specific information but you need to advise just what you need to know and what you are doing etc.

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 .

530 exc spacing between front fork & spacer

front axle installation: looking at the front of the bike:

slide the wheel into position and insert the axle from the left. with axle now through the right hand fork, install nut and tighten the left fork pinch bolts to secure the axle for tightening the nut. tighten the nut to 29.5 ftlbs. and loosen the left pinch bolts. now tighten the right pinch bolts and compress the front suspension while the left (from front) is still loose. now allow suspension to rest naturally and tighten all 4 pinch bolts to 11 ftlbs.
your done.......the axle is tighten against the rotor side and the other fork is then tighten in it's natural position so as not to cause premature seal and bushing failure and increasing stiction.

The cable will attatch to the back of the speedo, and attatch at the front wheel. You should have a speedo spacer installed on the left side of the rim ( between the tire and the front left fork leg ) . It screws into the spacer. then there is a little locking set screw to hold the cable from unscrewing itself.
