Default rear wheel spacers

I have a 1995 Sportster xlh 883
I have both shop and parts manuals

My question is the rear spacers.
part number 43654-86A there are two of them
part number 41594-73 one of them

XL forum says against left axle use spacer that is .728" and against right axle use spacer .733" both carry same part number 43654-86A

Neither manual showed a distinction as to which spacer goes where except to show 41594-73 which is .643" goes on belt drive side against one of the 86A spacers.

I put the rear wheel on not knowing about the.005" inch difference in the brake disc side spacer. Does anyone know if this is going to cause any problems ??
if the spacers are juxtposed??

Those dims are taken from used spacers but the just is to use the wider spacers against the bearings and the shorter one on the far right between a spacer and the swingarm.
I'd imagine if we all measured our spacers, we'd get a variance of sizes.
Just watch the tracking from behind as you spin the wheel.

The -86A spacers are essentially to get the clamping surface beyond the oil seals and the hub face. Thus, each side has an -86A spacer that fits INSIDE the oil seal & up against the Timken bearing inner race. On the left side, the -86A spacer provides clearance with the swingarm. On the right side, you need an additional spacer to account for the width of the drive sprocket, which is what the -73 spacer accomplishes.

Here's the Sportsterpedia section related to the rear axle spacers:
http://sportsterpedia.com/doku.php/t...earing_spacers

While the exacting measurement of the internal Hub Spacer Shims are important for bearing operation, the external spacers do not require the same exacting measurements. I'm sure there is a spec the OEM part is intended to meet, but it is not in the .001" accuracy.

As Hippysmack mentions, the measurements are nominal. If you've got one -86A spacer inside each oil seal and the -73 outside under the drive sprocket, you're good to go...

No worries...
