07 990 wheel reinstallation spacer location question

Hi guys, I am a new 990 owner and have a major noob question I could use your help with. I removed wheels and took them in to my local shop to swap the tires out. At some point during the wheel shuffle, the spacer below fell off the wheel and ended up in my truck. I am at a loss to confidently know what and where it should go back as I reinstall the wheels. I looked at the diagrams and still pretty unsure and I was not able to find any other forums that may have described it. Thanks for any help.

ktm spacer

Thanks! So the spacer does not seem to insert into the hub of the wheel at all (too big). does sit just sit up against it?

The flat on the spacer inserts into the hub bearing on the disc side and the cone sits flat against the caliper carrier/swingarm.

Thanks guys,
I totally stumped on how the spacer can physically fit into the hub at this point. (thinking something inside the hub moved outward perhaps). I will stop by the dealer today and see if they can show me how to reseat the spacer properly into the hub.

It may be that it just need a good thump to set back in but not comfortable doing that without knowing it is the right thing to do.

Thanks for your help.

The small diameter of the spacer presses up against the inner race of the wheel bearing after passing through the seal which seals against the spacer.

Did you seal fall out also?

Here is my hub..
I think the seal is there?

Again the diameter of the spacer just seems too large or it may be that it has to be pressed down in a way that it penetrates further.

Is that seal (black rubber thingy) flush wit the outer surface of the hub? Looks like they pushed the seal in when they installed your tire.

If the seals are in good shape you will need to twist that spacer as you push it in to be against the bearing. Wipe a smidgen of grease on the seal surface of the spacer.

That shiney ring on the spacer is where the seal contacts when installed

Mystery solved and I am a bone head.

So somehow I slipped the spacer for the front right wheel (left in pic below) over the spacer of the rear wheel (right in pic below) and did not realize it. I then presumed it was one piece which is why it was too large to fit into the hub.

Got everything squared away and back on the road. Thanks everyone for your help. This site and community is amazing.
