Bike's feeling squirly after changing brake pads...

I swapped out my rear brake pads the other day, and got everything back together.

Now, the bike is stopping great but feels a bit squirly, especially at higher speeds.

Can somebody tell me, is the fatter tip of the left rear spacer supposed to be facing out or inwards? I put it back on with the fatter part inwards and believe that could be the issue.

Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks

Don't worry about why I took the wheel off there stud, and no it's not a F'ng Camaro ding dong.

Is there somebody else here with a clue for me as to which way my left rear spacer is supposed to be facing?

Thanks again.

I'm sure there's someone here with a clue. Or even have a pix of a manual. Maybe even find the pix online for ya. As long as you want to be a shithead to someone though, I doubt you'll get a straight F'ing answer, STUD. Google will get you a better answer than what you'll get here with that attitude.

The wheel itself may not be adjusted in true alignment with the belt

THANK you texasnurse for being the only person (out of the four others that responded) to offer me some assistance here!

I found that I did indeed have the spacer backwards, and everything is fine now.

As for the rest of you that responded, what exactly are you even doing on this forum besides disrespecting people and wasting time?

Right off the bat, I get a complete dumbass response to my legitimate request for help, then I respond accordingly... then you people "keyboard-gang up" on me? Funny stuff.

Get a life people! If you just wanna hang out and clown it up, I'd suggest you move over to twitter with the rest of the sheeple.

THanks Texasnurse! I'm here for you, should you ever need any kind of assistance yourself.

Save yourself some grief and get a manual for your bike. Can't always depend on a bunch of knuckleheads
