Hello,

I had to replace my rear tire and when I was putting the wheel back on I couldn’t remember exactly what order everything went in. The service manual I have is for the wrong year and it didn’t match my 2016 muscle. So can you all verify that I did this correctly? On the left side I have the spacer in between the wheel and the swing arm and on the right it goes: wheel, spacer (with wire attached), caliper, swingarm, nut, then C clip.

I just did the same job and the instructions tend to keep the wheel and brake assemblies separate. The spacer with the wire is the abs sensor. I can't imagine it working correctly in any other position. Also if you didn't get the caliper spaced correctly it wouldn't align with the brake disk.

In short that's how I put mine together.

Thank you! That makes me feel better, everything seems tight and correct I just get anxiety that I missed something and i'm going to find out when I'm going 80 mph down the freeway. Mostly worried I missed a spacer or something somewhere but I guess it's OK.

Once you get everything bolted down, put bike in neutral and manually spin the rear wheel. If it spins freely you got it nailed. Wheel should not spin much but no binding or grinding or squeaking etc.
If the spacers are not installed correctly yhe brakes and pulleys/Belt will not align properly and will not install.
