So I got a noob question for you guys. I took off my rear brake caliper to change tires. I just got done greasing my bearings and new dust seals. But I totally forgot where the caliper washer spacer goes. Does it go against the wheel or against the swingarm? Or to make it easier. Do I put the washer on the left side of the caliper or the right side? Both sides seems to fit, but the right side of the caliper mount has grooves showing rear axle adjustments, so I was gonna go with the left side. But I wanna be sure as I can't seem to find a good rear axle diagram for my bike. Any ideas?

At this point I am lost. I knew I should have remembered were the spacer goes but stupid me just winged it, without buying a parts, service manual. So atm I don't know if its the left side or right side. But I assume the left side as the right side shows my past adjustment wear on the mount, So I assume that is not were the spacer goes. But for now I am going to wait for a sure answer, if anyone knows.

Lol I just came upstairs to type that. After 20 minutes of wheel struggle. I looked at the left axle adjustment plate and saw the washer imprint. I got the wheel on atm, gonna go back down and adjust, torque my axle and test her out. For a moment when I took the wheel off the washer fell off while pulling the wheel off. So I was thinking it had something to do with the caliper. Thnx for the response everything is all good
