I've removed the rear wheel (2003 model) to change the tire, and now I'm having trouble fitting the rear wheel back into place. The disc bolts do not clear the rear caliper holder. In other words, the wheel turns only up to the next disc bolt, and stops, because the bolt is touching the caliper holder. The wheel spacer is in place, and looking at the parts diagram, I seem to be doing fine. Still, there is not just enough space between the brake disc and the caliper holder. Anyone has ever had this type of issue? Thanks!

Your not putting something back together correctly. If they fit when you took it apart they will fit now too. Try removing the calipers from the bracket when reinstalling the wheel. Then place the caliper back on once you are sure that the bolt is correctly installed and correctly spaced.

I'm with Buildit, I always take my calipers off front and rear when doing tiers.

OK. Got it. The left spacer had been put back on the right side, and vice versa. :mad0235:
