    Hi, so i have a question about axle alignment on left forklegs outside.

    According to manual it says to make sure the axle is flush on left forklegs outside, sp before tighten that pinchbolt on forkleg i pushed the forkleg inwards to be flush.

    But i realized something, i can push the forkleg a little bit more inwards so the axle sticks out of forkleg about 3-4mm....

    So i thought, if axle is flush outside forkleg then there must be a play between the wheel , side collars and forklegs..

    Any thoughts on this ?
    If anyone are to mount the frontwheel can you please check if you have the same phenomena as i do?

    Thanks and Happy New vfr Year

    The axle pulls up hard on the left spacer, bearing, bearing spacer, bearing, right spacer and finally the right leg, when you tighten the axle nut. The left leg is free to float side-to-side on the axle so that the fork tubes can be set parallel for least sliding friction, then the clamp holds it in that position.
