Rear Wheel Locking Up
I have a 2005 650 Classic and I was replacing the rear tire. Everything was going fine. I torqued the final drive bolts. Then when I went to torque the axle bolt, it would lock up the rear wheel. It appears that all of the collars and spacers are present. Any ideas?

RE: Rear Wheel Locking Up
I suppose I should give some more details on this. When I put the driveshaft into the engine/transmission everything fits fine. The wheel spins freely and if i just snug the axle nut, it will spin perfectly. the spacing between the dif housing looks even all around. When I start to torque the rear axle nut, the space between the housing and the wheel goes away, and that's when the tire doesn't move. It would seem like I am missing some kind of spacer, but everything appears to be there. Any ideas or help would be greatly appreciated!
