Front Wheel bearing spacer 1976 Gold wing

Post by gfrench5@hotmail.com » Sat Apr 21, 2018 5:54 am



Hi everyone, getting to the end. Now new tires and wheel bearings, I have the all Balls set, looks good, Just removed fronts with your bolt method, work very well, but my question is, the spacer came out and the front one has a four prong flange on both ends one is of a larger diameter than the other and I did not note which flange faces which way (i.e.: speedo side?) can anyone assist me ? I don't want to do it wrong. The pics on this site is for the 1100 and I see the spacer does not have these two flanges on them.
Thank you for your assistance to this matter. Regards, Glen French

If you mean the spacer that goes inside the wheel between the bearings it should only go 1 way if 1 end is bigger than the other.

Thanks, It will go in both ways, I've looked at the schematics on line and can't tell which end is bigger in the picture therefore which way to place it. Also could you please tell me does the spacer between the bearings spin with the axle?? and should it spin freely independent of the bearings. Thanks again, Glen

If it goes either way it shouldn't matter which way. The spacer, inner bearing races and axle are all stationary.
