Axle Spacers - Where to find them? 3 Years, 2 Months ago  
I'm back to working on the XS650 Bobber again. And, the hard tail is a bit more narrow that the stock swing arm.

So, I'm hunting axle spacers 1/4" thick. I'd prefer not to use washers, which seem to mainly come 1/8" thick.

Inside diameter is 20mm.

I've already tried places like Fastenal, etc. Any thoughts?

Thanks,


Rich

This place here in town (RoBrand) seems to have everything fastener related. Their website sucks, though. Don't expect to find anything there.

Also, there's AluminumSpacers.com.

You could buy some bar stock aluminum and have a machine shop make them. It cost me $10.00 for the machine shop and $5.00 for the aluminum bar stock. Just a thought.

I wish I could find a metal lathe for a reasonable price, so I could make stuff like this when I need it or others need it.

Thanks, Guys. All good suggestions. I'll check them out.

Tim:
I'd want to keep the OD around the same size as the stock axle spacer which is 35mm ( 1-3/8" ).
ID could probably be up to 21mm. Seems to be a standard size for metric spacers, from what I've found.

Thanks, man.

Try this link, I bought from them when I went with a 21 on the front.

Good luck.
