Opps, I found this, did I forget something.

So I was cleaning up my workbench and found this:





Is that the spacer between the sprocket and the axle for the KLR

I'm usually pretty good at keeping track of parts.
Guess Im gonna have to take it apart and see, Im just not sure which
bike its from as Ive been working on all 3 and some buddies have also
been working on stuff over here...lol

That belongs in the backside of the sprocket carrier. Between the carrier and the wheel.

Ye sit was indeed that spacer.
i took the back wheel off again and it fit ever so nicely...

I had been working on a few bikes in the last few days and was worried Id have to
take them all apart to figure it out.

I had one of those, but I threw it out because it was dirty..

Glad you figured that one out quickly..

I guess I better get busy removing my wheels.... New tires arrived today.

Boeing does not have a box of parts like that! They send them to assembly and repurpose them on new aircraft. Don't worry, aircraft break on a regular basis, so the sum-total of parts remains constant. For every part that gets left off, a bit of bailing wire is added to hold something else in place. I speak from experience. I spent 21 of the last 27 hours on a Boeing KC-135 built in 1959 and some of that (14 hours) was flight time.

We picked up a bird from depot maintenance and during the first mission the refueling boom would not store (you'll have to Google the mighty Stratotanker - KC-135R). Turns out the maintenance guys had dropped a couple handfuls of rivets in the empenage section jamming the mechanism. And you though too few parts was the big issue.
