Hi Dave...I must be getting slow in my old age, I didn't twig it was you doing the wheel swap now. When you put the wheel on, hand tighten only the spindle bolt first, torque the pinch bolts then torque the spindle bolt. Spin the wheel to make sure it is centered properly as there is not much clearance.

And be sure to get the speedo housing lug behind the fork or you will break it.

Hope the polishing goes well. I must start my rear one soon but it's too hot lately for all that elbow grease!
