Yes 2 back; the cush rive side is slightly longer, I think and one at the front [edit] cush drive is the shorter

Not 100% sure about the back ones, but the front one is a lot shorter on ABS bikes than bikes without - because there is an additional ABS attachment around the Axle that is not there on non ABS bikes.

Herr Scheffelmeier is getting all the details. He has a non-ABS bike and his friend has an ABS one ... easy.

Yes there are two at the back and one at the front ... the other side of the front is taken up by the wider part of the front axle (right side). So a spacer at the front is only needed on the left side.

I have a non abs bike ... and at the back the right rear (cush drive side) is quite short. On the brake side, its longer ... but it may be different on ABS bikes.

All 3 spacers (at least on non-abs bikes) are different.

dirtsurfer/Colebatch,
Thanks for the clarification. Colebatch - not to derail the topic but any comments on the "several things" as you said for possible changes/upgrades to the X?

Well I have more "wants" than I have time to do them. Some things will take a while to do ... others will be a quick swap. I will not have time to do everything I wanted in time for this summers riding season. Some things will need to wait until winter!

I will update this thread when I do them, so that I can also mention any problems I have in the process of doing them, or any problems resulting from doing them.

But I will say Scheffelmeier Metall is working on something else for me and once he has the template will be easy to replicate for others

This is a great post!!

I love the idea of harder steel spacers to replace the stock aluminum ones...I'll watch for the group buy on that...

also love the idea about the Audi Headlamps...why didn't I think of that?

For US owners, i'm about two weeks from releasing a complete bearing and seal kit from a local (NJ) distributor..I just want to make sure all the parts are correct before posting...

I'm now officially "subscribed"

Rear spacer- Dirtsurfer says the cushdrive side is slightly longer but Colebatch says the cushdrive side is short and the brake side longer. I am making the assumption that both bikes are non-ABS.
Maybe I'll have to go down the shed and do some investigation as the rear sprocket is wearing more on one side. Have very carefully checked chain tension adjustments for symmetry.

I just checked mine and I think my previous post is wrong. I believe that the brake side spacer is the longer one

indeed, and the spacers for the rear of a ABS-bike and a non-ABS-bike are the same. Only the front spacer is different.

16 tooth

Having used plenty of 14 and 15 tooth sprockets over the past 60,000 km, I decided to try a 16 tooth one, since I was now back in Europe on highways.

Wow ... the bike flies. With the 16T and the front fairing, I am sitting comfy at 130 km/h (80mph) on the GPS (about 142 km/h on the speedo) all day long.
