I still have to tap on it until I get passed the bearing on the sprocket side. Other than it taking a little more effort to take the wheel on and off it seems fine.

It's possible that the aluminum spacer between the 2 left side bearings is damaged and catching the threads on the axle.

I would pop out the bearings, and spacer. Then i would check to see it the bearings and spacer slides over the axle smooth out of the hub.
One or more bearings could not be seated squarely in the hub causing a mis alignment of the axle.
You may have a bad bearing on the drive side.

I make it a habit to pull the axles on a regular basis and clean and inspect. Stoch bite pads clean and polishing to ensure smooth operation.

Good luck

Mine did the same thing. But it was a bear the ENTIRE way out. I looked at the axle, right about 1/2 inch from the thread was a ridge. I assumed that's was what was making hang up. I took a wire wheel and smoothed it out. Works much better now but still firm. Might give it a try.

Default rear wheel bearings/spacer

Hoping some one can shed some light on this issue, While mounting a new rear tire on the 200. I noticed the axle needed to be driven out??
After inspecting the hub/bearings,I discovered the bearings are not moving
at all.Seems the Spacer is contacting the bearings. Ive taken a punch/hammer
to move the spacer over a bit but no luck,just marring the inside of the spacer.
Short of distroying the spacer are there options?? Thanks in advance.

John

John,

Are talking about the internal wheel spacer in the hub?

Might not be a bad idea to just punch out the bearings and have a look as to what is going on. I just had mine apart last week. My rear wheel internal spacer has two "o rings" around it to help keep it centered in the hub so that when you insert the axle the spacer can't move and cause a binding issue.

I have also found that while pressing in the bearings I like to run my axle from the brake side through the bearing into the spacer and install in the sprocket side bearings with the axle in place. This method I have found keeps everything line up. The O rings really work nice in keeping the spacer centered within the hub.

It make things go super smooth if you heat the hub a little and use frozen bearings.

....good luck

The 2012 spacer is aluminium, if you torque the wheel axle too much it will deform and pinch the axle. Buy a new spacer. They are back running steel spacers again. I am not sure the aluminium spacer can take the specced torque either.

Get the external spacers from http://www.checkpointoff-road.com/store.html and clean up the mushrooming from the internal spacer.

I personally don't have these but have heard they are not any better?

Someone on here should know.

Look for stainless steel ones. I think Moose Racing makes them.
