Guys, This is driving me a but crazy - finally had time to give my VFR 800 from 2000 some love. New tires - so took the wheels off and brought to shop. New tires returned and now I mount. However, It looks like the little spacer/ collar on the left side has shrunk?! Siting on the bike, nose forward - then right side has the thicker spacer, which is ok. Left side has the small spacer - about 10mm - and space goes almost flush with the dust seal. The wheel axel has a thickness, making some distance between fork arm and the break rotors.. but not enough. The bolt heads in the rotor touches the fork arm?! Wheel does not look centered.. what mess did I create? Remember thinking to take before-photos, but 'nah, looks easy enough' - two days later I was I had before photos, so hope you can help? Here some photos.. maybe someone can shoot me photo of how much left side spacer on front wheel on a Gen5 sticks out? I definitely do not have as much visible as service manual shows of 'left collar'. Called the shop suspecting he might have accidentally swapped my spacer with one he had from another wheel, but he says no. Help appreciated so I can get cruising again and regain some sanity.
