Question Tire Spacers That STAY PUT?

Spacers are a sometimes. I've heard there are some aftermarket that are designed to not fall off. Anyone know where to get these?

Assuming you are talking about wheel spacers here, but grease holds mine in place during the install.

I believe what you are looking for are captive wheel spacers. Do a search on Google and you should be able to find a few aftermarket solutions.

Grease has always pretty much done the trick but I like this.

Are there any drawbacks to using the captive ones?

+1 I don't see the need for them but I suppose if you're racing and taking the wheel off a lot and in a hurry they would be nice to have.

I love them on my SV. Beats having everything lined just about lined up and then have a spacer drop and go rolling out of reach making you have to set everything down and start over. Great for a quick sprocket-drum change too.

I feel your pain. I bought some captive spacers a long time ago for my 09 zx6. I didn't bother getting the front, they're not that bad. They were worth every penny.

kawasaki...haha.
