Just put a new tyre on my AT. Put it all back together again now the wheel won’t spin on the centre stand without quite firm pressure by hand. ive pulled it on and off several times, spacers are in correctly, cush hub is in correctly, brake caliper is fitted correct. As soon as i torque the axle nut it seems to lock the wheel down.

i feel like such a dumbo. I bet it’s something simple, but I can’t find the issue. Ideas?

Rear wheel has asymmetrical spacers unlike the front.
Some earlier copies of the Service manual have a diagram that shows the spacers reversed.(in error)
The spacer in the shape of a top hat should go on the sprocket side. The other spacer is same as the front spacers- it goes on the brake side.

I’m such a effing idiot!
thanks DCT, that has to be it. Funny thing is when I put the spacers back in it looked like the seal IDs were different and the spacers would only go one way.....but I was wrong!

in the kitchen my wife says I have domestic blindness. I think today was a case of mechanical blindness!
