Pics? Something is misaligned or not installed right.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

Too easy.. There is powdercoating in the shouldered part of the hole. The bolt is tight or so it thinks so but it is really jammed into the hole.

Same crap happening when you get stuff "chromed"

No it wasn't the powercoating..06blackpearl did a great job on my wheels. The problem was the mechanic that put my bearings back. He ended up freaking putting the front bearing on the rear wheel.

Very Sad that's why I like doing my own stuff even If I have to learn Powercoating hard to trust anyone to take care of your bike with simple details.

Better get the oem spacer just to be safe and avoid further damage to the rotor and wheel. Also make sure to get a competent mechanic.
