August 14, 2010Installing rear axle covers as per instructions in HD kit. It seems the axle is too short when the mounting brackets are installed. The axle is tapered from where the axle goes through the bearing and adj. spacer. The larger part of the axle should go into the spacer and does not with the added thickness of the brackets. Has any one run into this problem do you have to have a different axle? Thanks Randy

August 15, 2010Randy - from what you describe I would guess you have a wrong kit. All the chrome stuff I`ve installed has always fit fine. As they have changed the bikes over the five years you`ll have to check the box and make sure it`s for your bike year and model.
Tattoo or someone else might have a better idea.
