Front Axle spacer 90 900SS

Post by Fuhe5117 »

Hi, I'm new in this forum.

I got my 1990 900 supersport 2 years ago and recently I realized that the front axle spacer missing, and Stein-Dinse said the part is no longer available.
Someone help me to let me know any replacement part or the spacers dimension of outer diameter and thickness ?

Hi HIGHWAY 89,
Great thanks for your help. Yes, I've been riding the bike without any vibration or something strange. But the front brake disk is not center of the brake caliper.

Yeah I'm looking at my bike now, and I'm pretty sure there just a central spacer and I can't really see how your brakes couldn't really line up and fit and still function, can you post any pics as to what you actually have

Hi,
Yes please find the two pictures. First picture is showing that inner pistons pushing outward more than outer ones. And second picture is showing that the stepped face of axle shaft touching bearing directly, there is no spacer in between. I think the missing spacer few mm makes fork inward and unable to keep brake center. I hope you can see the pictures.

Hi Highway89,
Yes, it looks the same. Now I understand that my bike has no problem.
Thanks very much!
