Front wheel problem?

Recommended Posts

Hey guy's so i have my rmz sm'd and my front wheel feel's with some kind of resistance like it's not spinning freely i installed everything correct my brake pads are new. I was thinking in maybe front caliper? Or can slightly little play on front wheel bearings can be a problem to? Stock rotor and caliper set up right now.

There should be ZERO play in the bearings after the wheel is mounted .  That's what the spacers do, they take-up all the slack between the axle step and the LH fork lug.

I would remove the front brake (pads and caliper), and make sure there's no play in the front end and that it spins freely.  Next bolt up just the caliper without the pads, and check to make sure the rotor is centered on the brake caliper and that the wheel rotates freely.  If it is not (which I'm going to assume it's not), you might have put the spacers on the wrong side of the wheel assembly, or you have the wrong spacers for your application.
