Axle Holders

Post by cobra04 »

I replaced the front wheel bearings on a 85 Interstate, when installing the axle holders (note: there facing the proper way and on the same side as removed) notice there is a gap in cap to bottom of fork, couple thou at least on one side and a little less on the other. Seems to me that I had the same experience with a V65 is this normal.

Both mine have a gap.It's at the back.It's a guarantee that the axle is tight to the slide.I lightly torque the front bolt first to ensure the gap is rear.Some difference may occur due to metal fatigue or stretching.
