Rear wheel offset? 950 / 990

Hello

Does anyone know what the rear wheel offset should be?

Before dismantling I found the hub (disc surface) / rim to be 13mm, but cannot be sure that it was correct.

Thanks.

I go off of the hub flange that holds the wheel bearings since the hubs rarely have a disk brake. I remember (with a faulty device) that the rim was dished toward the chain side about 3 mm. Front was centered.

Did he measurement back when lacing up a set of motard wheels but sadly I did not write it down (blog post was done long after wheels were laced).

Also have the memory of a goldfish numbers might sometime stick and I would like it to be a little more off-set then 3 mm, like 7 mm.

Sorry but cant help out better will try to remember to do a rough measurement next time I visit my dad have a rear wheel standing at his place.

Yes, that would be good to know.

I cannot say, as I do not have access to my sprocket carrier/support at the moment.

Could we calculate by taking measurements from the outside of l/h spacer and the outside of the r/h spacer + brake calliper support, and compare with the rim centre? The 950 r/h spacer is different to the 990, so the different rear brake calliper support also needs to be included when measuring hub width.

I'm not sure the above method would be accurate - can we take it that the swinging arm is symmetrical and also mounted perfectly central?
