f3 front rim spacing?

I bought my hawk with af3 front rim and I was feeling something odd from te front. Upon inspection there seems to be more space between the rotor and right leg than the left (sitting on bike) so I am not sure if I need to change out the front axle and spacers too?

Prev owner mentioned new bearings, so it may be possible one bearing isn't seated all the way?

superhawk22 is an unknown quantity at this point
F3 is a direct bolt on they used the same axle, rotors and spacers as the SH and the hub is the same width so your issue is somewhere else. Check to make sure the spacers are on the correct sides if so then you may have something with your seating idea.

yea i think that may be at, as i have the stock wheel threw the rotors on it and mounted it up and it appeared to be spaced correctly.... how do I try and press them in more?

get access to the bearing, then take something the size of the outside of the bearing, PVC pipe usually works, put it on the bearing and hit it with a mallet. Make sure to not put force on the inside part of the bearing.

That or use a bearing press. (the right way)

Tap Tap it in..... yeah that was it all aligned now, however i think the rotors may be slightly warped, i can rotate the wheel and it slows up at the same point each time but spins freely without the calipers on?
