I already have that, i have three years of schooling in mechanical engineering and the way this is setup is hard to understand. I thought that as well but i never had that part of the wheel apart i dont think, better go check.

Well i i got it, its the piece that goes behind/in the mount for the sprocket. I looked at the diagram for about 15 minutes and it clicked.

Hopefully, you didn't torque down the axle nut before noticing the extra spacer. If you had, you'd have destroyed the sprocket carrier bearing.


Not that I'd know anything about that! :angry

When did you notice the extra part?

I just figured I was more efficient than the factory when I had any parts left over. :rolleyes
If you feel or hear a rumble when you spin your rear wheel, you will know your bearing is stuffed.

In my case the rear wheel would not spin by hand while on a stand. You can see how the outer spacer contacts the sprocket bearing's inner ring. The inner spacer bridges the gap between the two bearings.

When I left the spacer out, there was enough pressure on the inner ring of that sprocket bearing to lock it up solid.
