    Hi, guys!

    Help wanted, from ridgeback 2004 owners.
    The problem is that my rear wheel is not in center of the motorcycle axis and stand to the ride side about 5mm.
    Because i placed rear bearings from Harley Touring models (it is easier to find them in Moscow, then original BD). In this case i made some "metall work" in left and right rear wheel hub. So, i think original wheel spacers is not usefull anymore.

    Could anybody sent me a size between wheel (metal part, not rubber) and a frame, like on a photo below (the old photo of my BD, before custom changes)?
    Left and right side.

    Thanks a lot.

    Lost in translation? Don't know why you would need that distance, I would imagine it is the same on both sides? If the frame is symmetrical. If you have modified the hub, I suppose you need to measure the thickness of the spacers you need when the wheel is in the middle. Or did I miss something?

    Agreed and if your off 5mm from center than best to measure your current spacers and add 5mm to the side you need you say is off while shaving 5 off the other side. Then all is square? Maybe

    Make sense?
