Yep, the thin washer goes on the side with the nut inbetween the nut and the adjuster.

Oh sweet guys ty for your help and fast help ,,, the wether here is getting really nice. Theres not a lot of hawks runing around down here in small town of lafayette ga.(make that none.) so i really injoy getting out and about and let here shine. And i was really not happy to think that i forgot where it went got lucky tho i dont have to take the wheel back off now. hehe its in the right place. Be bad for the wheel to wobble alittle at 65 Oh and i had fun trying to tape them wheels off right with just some masking tape.

Wheels look good. Just a word of advice though, when using that stand place it further back on the swingarm, like just forward of the rear sprocket. It'll have less chance of falling off, will be more stable, and will be easier to get up and down.

I bought a set of wheels from Hawxster996 that he had polished the outer rims and painted the spokes and inner hubs red. My kid is running the rear on his CBR right now (nail) and it looks good on his bike. I bought them so I wouldn't have to polish them myself (lots of work) but was going to powder-coat the centers hi-gloss black and run it with a '98 CBR900 wheel (all red) in the rear like 'Bling's. I still might but it does have a good look on the Superhawk in red & black.

Ty man i done this to try to give me a little more room to work to get the back wheel off> But u are right about being more stable I can tell u one thing it did not stay that way for to long lol just got this shot off and i said to my self that would be a a painfull fall. Just dont know who would fill it more... I would say me. I can see me jumping under it. all worth it to save my babby

thats the right attitude to have , when my little accident happened it was very painful for me due to the fact it was on the trailer and all I could do was watch in horror as my baby tipped over in my rearview
