Default Is there really a spacer between swinging arm and break mount plate?

I've been having a lot of trouble with the rear wheel on my 1995 XL1200C (You may remember my post from when my pulley shattered).
A friend was helping me sort it the other day, and told me I was missing the spacer between the rear break mounting plate and the swinging arm. I thought the spacers all sat between brake plate and the wheel. Unfortunately all the Sportys parked around for me to look at and see are all EFI modern things and totally different. So I thought I'd check here?

According to my shop manual (Clymer XL 2004-2006), there are no spacers for the mounting plate. If it's not lining up to the rotor you may have the wheel spacers in the wrong spots. (Thin spacer on brake side, Wide spacer on belt pulley side) (Been there Done that)

Cheers everyone. I didn’t think there was one. I don’t have the original spacers, they got cut up to convert to a fatboy wheel with sealed bearings. After the death of that wheel, and being broke, I’m having to put it back to an old scrounged wheel with tapered bearings. I thought I’d got it right, then I get “you’re missing the spacer between the swinging arm and brake plate”. Red hearings are the last thing I need. I’ll do another post about the other issue I’m having as it may be useful to others who have had their pulley bolts sheer off under mysterious circumstances.

My 95 does not have a spacer between the mounting bracket and the swingarm, but ToeJam is correct on the other spacers.

My 2000 XL1200 has (from left to right when looking from the rear) the axle nut, washer, swingarm, brake bracket, spacer, wheel...
