Spacer needed after removing fork reflector??

Recommended Posts

If I remove the fork reflector do I need to add a washer before tightening the lower clamp? Not sure if the bolt would be too long after removing the reflectors. I’ve been searching to try and find this answer and I’m hoping someone can help me out.

If you are worried about this or other bolts, you could just add a couple of washers.

I don't think it will be an issue, as other have said. I went with 40mm bolts for my project for those locations and removed the heavy spacer and the reflector, you could just leave in the heavy spacer/collar and be fine. They are the same ones as the axle pinch bolts if you wanted to go OEM 40mm.
