First check the torque, make sure your spacers are in correctly (i.e all the way in) not bound up. Then check your brake calipers. I have seen people install both pads on one side of the rotor, leaving the other side of the rotor on the brake pistons. If all else fails, check your rotors. If one is bent....it'l rub as it goes around.

TORQUE MOST LIKELY AIN'T YOUR PROBLEM - DON'T RIDE IT TILL YOU GET THE ASSEMBLY PROBLEM IRONED OUT. MAKE SURE YOU DIDN'T PUT YOUR SPACERS IN THE WRONG SIDES, IF THEY AREN'T THE SAME.

Are you SURE the speedo drive is in time with the drive tangs - it's tricky to get it together right - I've seen that be a problem on that type of speedo drives.
