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

Eek

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.

Maybe the seal walked out a bit at one time and the PO tapped it back in?

Here is a couple beam shots of questionable quality. The first is a 100w Halogen in a Piaa 520 series housing and wide angle lens. The second shot is with the HID in a PIAA 520 pencil beam lens. Its hard to tell distance, but signs are visible well over a mile away.

Dang it. Looks like I'll have to buy a new spacer. Thanks for the help.
Here's my PIG. Fresh new powder coated rims.
