ST2/ST4/Monster/851/888 etc wheel spacer

There is a wheel spacer on the chain side of the above type bikes that is often fitted wrong, if fitted at all. The spacer is tapered in section, the tapered bit goes towards the wheel and the flat face against the swing arm. Fit it the wrong way around and the spacer interferes with the circlip in the sprocket hub making the wheel hard to turn. Leave it out and the sprocket carrier face interferes with the swing arm, damaging both. Check this spacer is in when you've had your bike to the tyre fitters. There should be a gap of approx 2mm between the swing arm and sprocket carrier. If possible check the wheel spins freely too.
