    Refitting rear wheel after powder coating - the oddest thing happend!

    I’ve just collected my rear wheel from the powder coaters and was attempting to reinstall it.

    I got to within about 5mm of the wheel sitting back down onto its seat on the hub, when it wouldn’t go any further. It then found that the rim was fowling in the swing arm and the wheel wouldn’t rotate! It’s the rim and not the tyre. It’s as if I’ve left a spacer out, but I’m not aware of one.

    I’ve only taken the caliper, and rear disc off (and repainted the inner “tunnel” of the rear wheel in situ) and I’m not sure what to do next. I had wondered if the powder coaters had given me the wrong wheel back, but it looks identical to the original.

    Have I missed something obvious?

    Any ideas please?

    I presume you have checked to make sure there is none of the powder coating or paint that has
    found its way into the mounting surfaces wheel, amd that it is scrupulously clean on those surfaces.

    Have you checked that the large Circlip shown in your Photo's hasn't been dislodged,
    and is fitted fully into its groove ?

    I'm thinking that if part of the hub of the wheel is making contact with one end
    or a part of the circlip, that could prevent the wheel from seating down correctly
    and would also throw it off centre slightly - causing the fowling on the Swingarm ?

    I don't know how much clearance there is between the extremeties of the the circlip and the
    recess of the Rear wheel hub, but if there is very little clearance this might be the reason.

    When I remove the rear wheel I always note the valve position relative to the Bevel Box
    to make sure it is replaced in exactly the same position - with 5 Studs to mount on,
    there are 5 possible positions.

    After checking the circlip is correctly seated, try rotating the wheel
    by a fifth of a revolution at a time to the next "position"
    to see if it will fit correctly in one particular position.

    Cheers  :821:

    Thanks. I will try and check all of those things early in the morning.

    From the photos, can anyone see if there’s any reason to believe that I might have received a different wheel back?

    What is the natural clearance between the rim and the inner edge of the swinging arm?

    I just had a look at my Rear Wheel and it has the same marking of "17XMT60"
    in the same place relative to the valve hole, so it would appear to be the correct wheel.

    It's awkward to get in there and measure, but the clearance appears to be around 10mm
    as shown in the below photograph, and maybe a little more between the side of the wheel rim
    and the side of the Swing Arm - I can get my forefinger into the gap.



    Cheers  :821:

    Well, I did exactly as you said and it dropped into place perfectly (in a different position on the bolts). Fantastic!

    Thanks for everything. Again!

    (The large glass of sherry that I had over dinner helped too! 😁)

    Think I might chalk that up as another "Coconut Success Story" !

    Looks really good - I'm looking forward to seeing the completed project !  :028:

    That wheel has been very beautiful. When he can, he passes us a photo with his entire motorcycle to see the color contrast of the two wheels. Thank you.
