Red face Rear wheel

I removed the rear wheel to renew the rear tyre (first time for me on this bike 07 T100efi) the problem came when I was, replacing the wheel back into the swinging arm, I could not get the rear sprocket carrier back into the hub fully due to the cushdrive rubber therefore not enough clearance to get the wheel and spaces back into the swinging arm, I had to lever the swinging arm apart to get the wheel back in, once it was back in and torqued up all was well, Anyone else had this problem or is it just me ?

Most people have trouble with rear wheel refitting, a right PITA...

Some tips to ease the task in this thread:

On this next one there're some more ideas including a clever one to compress the cush drive rubbers using a sort of bicycle press:

Thanks for the info Forchetto, looks like the tips from Bobstrech and Francypants is the way to go.
Thanks again,
Pete.

Though it feels as though you need three hands, the job gets easier with repetition...

Spacers - spacers -spacers. So very important - do not forget to reinstall the spacers, especially the cone-shaped spacer between the cush driver and the hub. I did... twice! Not pretty, the results.

just replaced the chain and sprox/ cush drive rubbers and rear tyre on my wifes america- a bit of swearing and throwing things...;-)
found i had a similar issue with squeezing the assembly between the swing arm...some rubber mallet anger on the cush drive/rear sprocket seemed to help- it was sticking out proud a few mm too much.

guiding the wheel whilst at the same time making sure the spacers don't fall out whilst also holding the caliper carrier and then realising the axle has rolled away just beyond reach makes for some fun and games!!!!!

On the links it refers to the axle being inserted from the left. Mine is the other way. Any problem?. Would this make assembly easier?
