I took my rear tire off. I thought I paid attention how it came off but now I can't figure out the order or technique to put it back on. If someone knows where I can't get the info to fix it I would appreciate the help.

It's early here and I haven't had my coffee, so I'm extremely compelled to bust your balls... But I won't:crazy.

FYI, a tire only has one part... The tire. The "wheel" has many parts.

Anyone else see that partzilla finally came around and rolled out a pretty legit mobile site? Thought it was a nice touch, finally.

Yes but I can't find a break down what order the parts go in.
It may be simpler, to take your wheel assembly, and thead on all the spacers with the axle, and make a measurement. If your final assembly is wider than the gap in the swingarm, you at least then know it's not right. Take some of the guesswork out of it.

Most of the spacers are made so they will only fit correctly in one place in the order of assembly, so the wheel is centered in the swingarm. The rear brake carrier is one of those spacers as well.

Once you start stacking hte parts, you'll have a better idea of the proper order when you go to do it with the wheel in the middle of the mix.

I appreciate the ball busting comments so don't hold back. You are very correct I hurried through the description of my problem. I have tried to assemble my spacers and my wheel on my axle in many different ways but to no avail. :coocoo I know I really should have been far more diligent when I was taking it apart. Now I'm in the situation of warming weather and a bike that I'm unable to assemble without the knowledge of other so I appreciate the help. The partzilla is helpful but isn't completely clear. Part #42036 looks to be the part I'm most confused about but I'm not sure how it came out because my bearing isn't out on that side.

I have tried that a few times but hasn't been helpful yet. It seems there is far more metal than there is space between the swingarms.

If you still need help, PM me and I will give you my number and we can chat,g or your can give me a detailed description of the problem your having and we can get you sorted.
I really appreciate the offer I am going to work on it later today if I don't figure it out I will take you up on that.

That part "42036", is a spacer that sits under the fish drive or sprocket hub. If you pulled the sprocket hub off of the wheel and exposed those little rubber thingys (crush drives) then that part more than likely fell out. Perhaps a photo of what you've got currently might help.

and, if you put the cush drives in upside down, the sprocket carrier will stick out too far, which in turn, makes the wheel too wide for the swing arm, giving you fits trying to install it. Ski

+1 on what's been said about the cush drive.
The Cush drive is the part the sprocket mounts to. It should fit flush with the wheel hub.
Even when put together correctly I have to tap it with a rubber mallet to get it to seat right.

After all this information its back together and yes that mysterious spacer went behind the sprocket. Thanks for the help.
