The aluminum sprocket was basically free with the wheels so I figured I would just go ahead and use it to see where I am on gearing. I will buy a steel sprocket when I get it sorted out.

I saw. Wanted to add the bit about steel. Did you ever get your swing arm welded after the chain chewed on it?

No one has used the collar? I put grease on it to band aid it but the blue is where the gap is. It can't be right.

What order did you tighten things up?
Me thinks you tightened the pinch bolts before you tightened the big nut...
My routine is as follows.
Put wheel on, tighten the big nut to pin the brake side spacer against the fork leg.
take the bike off the stand and push on the front suspension to make sure its not in a bind. Then i tighten the pinch bolts.

Is that the right XR650R hub and spacer?

That's not the right spacer. Mine has a lip on it that slides into the plastic piece.

There is no nut. Sounds like the seal is shot. I have this setup. Check the bearings. My seal is a proper fit to the small end of the bush.

Wondering if the bushing was installed backwards at one time.

The cost may be high, but it is offset by the durability and longevity. Your bike will be long dead and rusting away before that light will give up. And even if it does kick the bucket, I'm sure BD will get it sorted out. They're not a power hungry money thirsty mega company, they're down to earth and support their products fully

I'm not sure if it's right or not. The wheel came from JCR. Previous owner got it from them while in Baja.
I knew something was wrong. It needs to be a sealed fit. The seal looks fine. No wear points.

Wonderful

I cleaned up the parts to show what's really going on.

Front collars.


The problem collar


Collar with axle




The collar looks like it's been worn but how is this possible IF the seal doesn't even touch it?

That collar does not resemble the part I recv'd from XRsOnly last year. Xr's customer service is less than spectacular, but you could ask them if they would just sell you the right spacer that you need. Worth a try.

My spacer looks like yours. Somehow the taper heading towards the big end came into contact with the seal and hogged it out. You can see the wear on it.
