So where does one go to either get the new spacer made or the sprocket carrier machined? Also, how much does that sort of thing cost?

Any decent machinist can make up the spacer(s) and/or turn the sprocket carrier...budget about $100...

Thanks. I will look into it. I am going to wait until Actionabe has his done I think. I am not really comfortable with the wheel being that far off center.

Be advised that my rough measure of the rim position was in relation to the swingarm, not the bike's centerline. I don't know how this compares to the stock rim positioning...

I will take measurements of my stock rim in relation to the swingarm. Then we will have something to go by, sort of.

That will help somewhat. I guess I should clarify my prior post. When measuring from the edge of the rim to the swingarm, the right side was ~1/2" greater than the left side. So I guess that would put the rim 1/4" to the left of being centered in the swingarm. I said 1/2" off earlier, but that was the gross dimensional difference between measurements and not the amount left of center.

Of course, measuring in this manner is only relevant if you have the wheel is sitting perfectly in alignment along the primary axis of the bike...therefore, it's a crude measure at best.

Regards,

--Rich

I will be making the same measurement. I usually measure my chain adjusters with a digital caliper to make sure my wheel is straight in the swingarm.

Ok after some admittedly crude measurements the stock wheel seems to be centered. Is there a certain way to take this measurement?

Like I said, it isn't very accurate or easy to measure for that matter. I used 2 straight edges...one along the straight portion of the swingarm to allow forward extrapolation of the straight swingarm section and the other to measure distance from the edge of the rim to the reference line.

I did the same thing. 1/4 inch off isn't that far. The large number of things needed to correct that is interesting.
