    Make sure that you have the axel bushings on the correct side.  I couldn't tell you which is which but one has a single line on it and the other has a double line on it.  Having them reversed will definitely cause some rubbing of the brakes.

    It is the Right spacer that is longer than the left one.

    The Service Manual has an error explaining the machined rings in these parts
    that are suppose to identify them :

    Section 16 - Wheels and Tyres.
    Page 16.6 :
    "Note: The right hand spacer is longer than the left.
    To identify the spacers, the right hand spacer has two machined rings
    while the right has a single machined ring. Note the position of the spacers.”
     :087:

    This should read, : “..... while the left has a single machined ring.”

    This and many other errors across all of the Trophy ( 2012 onwards ) publications
    including the Service Manual, Service Booklet, Owners Handbook and Audio Handbook,
    have been compiled and can be downloaded from the Forum here :

    The only other question would be how to define left & right.   Is left & right defined looking at the bike from in front of the front tire or looking at the bike from behind the rear tire ( same as sitting on the bike ) ?   I think most Riders woulod define L & R as sitting on the bike, but I could be wrong.

    Left & Right are always defined as when sitting on the bike facing forwards,
    just as you would define left and right if sitting in a car
    ( not that you would want to do that of course ! )  :028:

    I'm getting about a full 2 revolutions with a hard tug on the wheel so I should be good.  This is after a test ride on the brakes.  The zip tie over night trick tightened them up to where I felt they should be.  Cleaning the bobbins seems to have gotten rid of the shuddering I was getting on hard braking as well. 

    [EDITED by Trophy Moderator to remove disallowed content] ..the only physical one ( Service Manual ) I could find on Ebay was $150 and looks well loved. 
    That should make all of these projects much easier to complete and to find all the torque specs when putting everything back together.
