For those who have done this install, how far out should the dust seals protrude from the hub surface? I've centered my bearings with the stock spacer and pounded in the new dust seals, but they stick out about 3mm form the wheel.

Is this normal?

I figured as much. The axle sticks out way to far on both ends and I can't get the Seals fluch when installed. I think the best solutin is to dismantle the front wheel, slice the axle in 1/2 and remove about 6-8mm from the spacer then reassemble.

Any recommendations TWF?

as per the last post, I pulled wheel apart, removed spacer, using a pipe cutter to make a level cut, I removed 8mm from center section of spacer, leaving the larger, flanged ends and reassembled. The axle sits in the proper position now and the wheel is centered to 1mm of left and right in the fork.

What is the torque spec for an 03 gixxer 750 front axle?
