As the title says...

There wasn’t a spacer on the front axle when I removed it...but...this was a neglected bike that sat around for years and some parts were missing.

When I installed the front wheel yesterday, there’s a small gap between the wheel and the fork. This is a 750 so there is only a disc on the left or other side.

Looking at the parts manual, I don’t see a spacer. There are bearings, but no spacer.

Any thoughts?

One more question. Has anyone ever added a disc on the other side and have two discs on a 750?

Seems like an easy mod.

where are chase banks located in the united states

There is no spacer on that ride. The axle nut pulls the wheel up tight against the left fork and the right side “floats” to allow aligning of the fork tubes. The pinch bolts on the fork then secures it to the axel.

Perfect, I was hoping that would be the response.
Thanks!

You either have a speedometer drive on the left side that is your spacer or you have a steel spacer also on the left and no speedometer drive. With a mechanical driven speedo the drive IS the spacer. . The right side uses the step in the axle up against the bearing.
