HELP: Rear wheel issues

I recently did a tire change on my 08 zx10. I reinstalled my rear wheel and tightened the 18mm nut to 80 ft/lbs according to the repair manual and noticed the wheel would not spin without a lot of effort in neutral. Could this be a sign of bad bearings?
FYI I just had the wheels powder coated. I have 15k miles on the chain and front sprocket but the rear sprocket has less than 3k

Check the spacers. You should be good from there.

On the Fast Orange One. Marvics Silverstone Gold Mag (lighter than Marshs), Full Akra Ti Hex, 14 Cals, PC3 with a bad ass map, Scotts, Pazzos, hell about 7k in aftermarket parts fast. So now you know I'm Floyd Money Mayweather fast!! Kanye taking the mic from Taylor Swift fast!! haha Just damn fast!!

What could be wrong with the spacers? Will I need new ones?

Are you sure the chain isn't too tight? or try backing off the axle nut a half or full turn and see if that helps? best of luck though and your adjuster blocks are even on both sides of the swingarm right?

The chain is a little tight. I will check the adjuster blocks in the morning. Thanks

I think there are spacer issues. I tight chain will not hamper the rotation of the rear wheel (only a tight chain). Magic is right, spacers gets left off and people totally forget to add them to the re-install. Keep me posted.

If it's not spacers make sure your rear caliper is mounted correctly...doubt it but could be another possibility.
