Front wheel spacer zzr 400

Hi can anyone help
i bought a zzr 400 which i found out that some plonker had fitted gsxr wheels to it which didnt fit so i bought some second hand ones from a breaker now i find that the spacer does not fit as far as i know it is a zzr spacer because the gsxr one is much bigger does anyone have the size of the front spacer because it seems to me that i have to spread the forks to get the wheel in and the brake caliper catches on the disc because its out of alignment ??

My 98 Nissan Pathfinder the rims I have already they are aftermarket 20 inch rims but the center hole is too small that's why I need a Wheel Spacers anyone know what size I need

Its very poor practice to have wheels that do not fit the centre for support. Fitting spacers is not the solution and could result in the wheel not being properly centered on the hub, not properly supported and liable to have the nuts loosen during use. My advice is sell them on ebay and get some that fit. Its your only contact with the road.

If the car is front wheel drive a puller is required to dismantle the hub a rather involved job better left to a mechanic .If rear wheel drive do the following. ( Applies to front wheel drive also.) Chock rear wheels,loosen front wheel nuts, jack up car, fit safety stands,remove wheel , remove grease cap from axle. remove split pin or locking nut on axle ,Remove hub, with a punch drive out the grease seal ,the tapered cone bearings can now be removed, the 2 bearing cups still in the housing will have to be pressed out ,all old grease has to be cleaned out. the new cones must be repacked with high temp bearing grease . tap in the seal with the lip facing inwards , slide on the hub fit the outer cone to the axle , the spacer and nut goes on next, tighten the nut to seat the bearings , spin the hub make sure its free to spin, back off the nut one eighth of a turn fit a new split pin or lock tab. fit grease cap and road wheel.

Fitting whell spacers smart 450 2003

fitting wheel spacers to wheels is not a good idea . You will have to fit longer wheel studs and this weakens the stud as you cannot go up the stud diameter as is required to maintain the stud strength. The studs will snap under side load when cornering and that will leave you in a spot of bother. Next you will experience the same problem when off set rims were the thing to make the track wider . Looked smick but unfortunately the load was transferred from the larger inner bearing to the smaller outer bearing which was incapable of the extra load and so burnt off the stub axle . Chrysler and ford vehicles suffered most from this problem and is was mostly at speed . You will also have the problem that when you do this the tyre is closer to the mudguard edge and when you hit a bump or turn the edge of the mudguard will tear the tyre apart. . Consider why you want to do this and how much you want to come out as there are rims with the negative off set that will widen the track a lot safer with less problems.

How to Replace front fork seals on Suzuki GSXR 1100 K model

Remove front wheel, brake calliper etc . Undo top and bottom yoke pinch bolts and slide out fork leg. Clamp chrome tube in a soft jawed vice and remove top nut carefully as it is under some load and will fly away, (but its not too much you can hold it with your hand). Tip out remaining oil slowly so as to not loose spacer on top of main fork spring. Clamp lower aluminium leg in vice by calliper mounts and remove allen screw in extreme end (if the wheel spindle was in you couldnt see it) This is the only part that might be a problem as the inner end may turn. An impact wrench may help or if not a simple broom handle shoved up the other end is often enough. Once this bolt is removed the leg will split. Now lever out the dust cover to reveal the wire circlip holding in the fork seal. Remove the clip and lever out carefully the old fork seal. Fit new seal using a large socket and mallet or something similar and reassemble in reverse order, not forgetting to add correct amount of new fork oil.

I've recently had new tyres fitted, I think one of the front wheel spacers must have fallen out as I've only got the one on the left of the wheel. Am I right in thinking there should be a spacer on the...

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

I recently purchased a Hyundai Genesis 4.6 and I purchased somw extra rims for snow tires but they do not seem to fit. I think they came off a 3.8 Genesis but why would they rub against the brakes in...

If they're rubbing on the brakes, it's most likely because with your V8 model, the front brakes are larger than those on the V6 model (it's not uncommon to see this, due to the greater power of your engine and higher speeds the car can reach). A spacer really won't help, because it moves the wheel outward, where you need more clearance in the inside diameter of the wheel. You'll need to find larger wheels to fit your car.
