Axle gap?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys quick question. Is there supposed to be a gap between the fork and axle of the front wheel?

Honda xr250r 1986

The manual just states to tighten the axle to 58 ft lbs and then tighten the clamp to 15 or so... but there's a gap between the speedometer spacer and the fork... is this normal?

The gap is only on the side with the clamp :huh:

I guess you've never had the axle out have you? That end of the axle has a shoulder and the shoulder tightens against the speedo gear. There is no gap, just looks like it.
