[QUOTE= To be honest I don't remember having an issue getting the wheel on.
Typically, I sit on the ground and prop the wheel up with my legs to align the axle hole. Hope this is the missing piece that makes it easy in the field, or garage.[/QUOTE]
Ya that's what I do. Wish you lived near me, be worth a six pack or two to watch you put on my wheel by yourself. I think I need to increase the distance between the swing arm ends by a 1mm. The spacers keep getting caught on the swing arm end or the caliper end where the axel goes through. By the time I get the wheel almost in place the brake pads fall out of place and I need to start all over again. Reminds me of a KLR I once had.
If you don't know where your going don't lead!
