Default 2003 Sportster Rear Axle spacers

Hey everyone,

I recently removed my wheels from my 03 sportster to install new tires, to my mistake, I did not pay close attention to the order of the 2 spacers. I have been looking at diagrams, but I cannot distinguish them in the diagram.

If anyone knows the order of these spacers it would be truely helpful!

The smaller of the two should go on the brake caliper side. Larger on pulley side.

Perfect thank you! one more question. The smaller one is grooved, does grooved side go up against the bearing, or the brake caliper?

I have never had any groved ones before unless you are just talking about the lines in it from when it was cut. If it is just that it shouldn't make a difference. Maybe someone else would know more about that auestion than I do.

The grooves around the outside diameter are there as guide to distinguish the size of the spacer if you had different sizes all in bins next to each other. Some have 1 band others 2 bands etc.
