SM Rear Wheel Re-install

So I pulled the front and rear to replace the Dunlops for Pilot Powers.

To re-install the rear how does the bushings and spacers go? Is there a detailed print out of the this? I took my time taking them out and have a good idea but would like to reference with a pic.

Process took about twenty minutes start to finish. Once the lower chain guide was removed everything else was cake. I really like the rear brake bracket and setup. I didn't need to break the chain, even though I bought the Motion chain press and breaker.

From left to right it goes ...

Swingarm - Spacer - Wheel - Spacer - Brake Bracket Bush - Swingarm

You don't need to remove the lower chain guide....... just flip the bolts over, so the flat head is on the inside.

I sawed the sticky-outy bits of the chain guide bolts flush with the back of the bracket. Makes a world of difference getting the wheel on and off.

The on-line microfiche at www.ronayers.com is a really great resource. Sorry for the monster link -- cut and paste in sections into your browser.

Roadracer.... you are the man. That is what I was looking for.

I wish Suzuki did what Yamaha does with a similar setup as Ronayers. on their website.

Yes, thats a great idea, just stick the bolts in the chain guide the opposite way!! Never worry about the guide again!!
