Hi tplumlee, welcome to the site. There is a spacer that goes between the caliper bracket and the hub that is missing, when the rear wheel is removed some one left it out or sub'd a washer for it and it is to thin. Follow the track below and you will see the spacer that the WingAdmin is showing on how to R&R the rear wheel. You can go to the DIY site for most anything you will want to do with your Wing. Good luck. :mrgreen:

Thanks for the response, I'll add that to the list of things I still need to do. :)
