Sato Racing Spools

Hey guys Im having trouble lining up the spools evenly. On the right side of the bike (no chain) its fit perfect no problem. But the chain side is much harder and I cant get it to line up evenly because part of the wheel is in the way. hopefully the pictures can help show you what I mean. First two pics are the right side. Next 3 are left. What am I doing wrong?

Something definitely doesn't look right. There should be way more clearance between the wheel and swingarm. It looks like you are missing a spacer on that side of the hub. I don't have my bike or manual with me so can't say for sure. Does the bike track properly? Try and get a measurement from the swingarm to the edge of the sprocket carrier.

Everyone has the right to be offended but just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right!

I couldn't find anything in the manual about a spacer but the measurement from the end of the swingarm to the edge of the sprocket carrier is about .20 of an inch. I filed down the back end of the spool a bit and it'll sit where it's supposed to but it still scrapes a bit when the bike is moving. Am I missing a spacer or do I just need to file even more?

I have Sato spools on my '12.

I only have 0.6 mm gap between the spool holder and the sprocket carrier.

edit: I have more space at the top & bottom than I do in the middle of the spool holder.
The 0.6mm measurement was taken at the tightest space, @ 3 o'clock when looking at the wheel from the left side.

I also have my spools as far as possible to the end of the swingarm. Possibly too far, but the most-reward fasteners are covering the swingarm, so I think I am O.K.

I tried when it was still daylight out, but I could not get a clear shot of the gap. At least, not the center where it is noticeably narrower.

I will continue to try. I will put a light source behind and see if that works.

It is pretty hard to show the gap.
I included a couple to show how far back on the swingarm they are.

I have never seen the Sato spool assembles in person. Are both of the plates that fit on the inside surface of the swing arms the same thickness? In the pics the one on the brake side seems thinner than the chain side. If so I would switch the thinner one to the chain side. If they are the same nothing would be gained.

I just came back in from the garage after reading your post.

Both inner plates appear to be identical, however, the inner plates seem to have a "front" and a "rear", or at least, they are not the same on both long edges. One side has a relief cut into it.

I noticed that my brake side had the relief facing the rear, while the chain side had it facing the front. I think if I swapped my covers (or just flip it over???) I, and everyone putting these on (wrong?) might gain a lot of space.

And here is a picture of my gap with some fill flash:

I will probably play with mine tomorrow when the neighborhood is on a lock-down due to the parade going on out on main street.
