Just got the wheels chromed. I am trying to install the rear wheel and having problems. I have the rear wheel on the hub spline but it seems it not on far enough.There is not enough space to install the brake caliper bracket and the coller. what up? ???

Sounds like you are not lined up quite right.

Run the axle all the way through without the caliper or spacer, so you can lift the wheel with the swing arm on the axle.

Once it is on the axle, off the ground, it should line up and go all the way in.

It seems lined up prior to fully engaging, but there is still a gap at the hub / wheel connection.

Once it is full engaged, that seam will be flush and there will be plenty of room to get your spacer in there.

Now, once it is on, lower the bike so the tire just touches the ground. You need to back the axle out to get the spacer on and such, without letting the wheel un-seat.

I have also had luck seating the wheel with no axle and then running the axle once everything is already lined up.

It is just a matter of getting it lined up right, both in terms of rotation and flat to the hub.

Good luck.

Thanks. The mechanics did not press the bearings in all the way on the spline side of the wheel:cus:, that was preventing the wheel from fitting completely on the spline. Pressed the bearings in, wheel slide on perfect. :hot: I read that on a post on this site to check the bearings.:bigthumbsup:

I and a couple of other people had the same problem. But if you need the solution feel free to give me a call or PM me your number. You have to grind down part of the rim to get it to mate properly. God knows why they chrome it there. The tolerances are so tight even being a little layered will make the wheel not seat properly.
