  • Need some help with my post wheel install 95 750

    Ok so i got the old wheel and tire off and when i put the new wheel on the bolts on the sprocket rub the inside of my swingarm.... Am i putting something on backwards or do i need a larger spacer is there any tutorial for this? Or like a step by step or something.... I switched the pre sprocket onto the post hub btw if that helps any

    Where does is rub? Maybe you have the spacers on backwards. Maybe you need the post axle spacers. I dunno. If it rubs toward the outside of the sprocket, chances are the wheel isn't aligned correctly. If it rubs closer to the center of the sprocket, it's likely a spacer issue

        Yea thats what it was it just needed to be shimmed a lil bit...... Man i just took it for a test ride and i cant believe the handling difference holy crap!!!!! I guess the 160 that was on the 3.5 stock wheel really does make it handle bad because its like a whole new bike

          The pre spacer is around... 9mm if I remember right. The post uses a wider spacer, around 14mm I believe.

            Right, you need the post spacers too.

              What i did was use the pre spacers but i got a few hameavy duty washers that are the same diameter as the spacer to put next to it.... Seems to be working fine... Is there any problem with doing this? I mean is it unsafe i dont see how its different really.... Got plenty of clearance and i rode it a few hundred miles with no ill affects

                No danger or harm. Just convenient to not have many multiples to deal with every time you have the wheel off. The washers will do the same thing. The main point is to just have clearance for the swing arm and the sprocket bolts. The exact width of the spacing doesn't matter otherwise as the swing arm flexes, so that's a variable even when assembled and being ridden. So... 13mm or 15mm... doesn't matter. Just clear those bolts and your good.

                I promise... if you put 10 swing arms together and stacked them... you would have 10 different measurements as they sit.
