Seating the Final drive
So I ordered tires offline. I took the wheels off the bike myself and took them in to have them mounted and balanced. When I reinstalled the final drive for some reason I can't get it to seat as close to the rim as what is was when I took it off. There is like an 1/8" gap. I remember when I took the final drive off that it was pretty much just about tight up against the rim. I don't want to force it too much, but even hitting it with a rubber mallet won't get it to seat. Any ideas?
The bike is a 06' V-Star 1100 Silverado.
Any help is appreciated.
