just done a mates sportster. Yours have shims and tapered bearing? The one i did was twin disc mag but lots the same. Some of those pics look a bit sus. Axle looks wrong in first pic not far enough through. Spacer is running differently on one side you can see wear marks are different. Did you replace seals. If it is a timken one i will get you all the info. There is diefinately something fundamentaly wrong,

What's going on with the right side of the wheel there? That spacer should be going inside of that oil seal.

Is that a washer? I noticed you don't have a washer between the fork and axle nut... is that the washer there between the spacer and the oil seal? If so, that's your problem.

Should be axle through the right fork, spacer, wheel, spacer, left fork, washer, nut.
Looks like you got it through right fork, spacer, washer, wheel, spacer left fork, nut.

Should look like this:

Glad you have it figured out. You didn't mention that you had both wheels off, that might have helped with the responses.

Sorry didn't think that it could've been that cuz I had the spacers together but it most definitely was.
