good place to get metric aluminum spacers

When I traded out my stock rear passenger pegs with the carbon fiber hangers it makes the cans sit too close to the swing arm. So I need to space them away from the subframe on both sides :(

Bookmarked.


I didn't want to wait, and it wasn't that big of a deal.

what's the real difference between 3/8" and 10mm?

just get a standard size spacer and be done, quit over thinking it

IF it were threads, it would be way different, spacers and washers are not going to make a shittin difference.

they worked perfectly in my metric application...they are spacers!

the spacers I purchased were labeled as metric for my metric-measured diameter axle and they fit just as well as the original wheel spacers fit. I needed different spacers to recenter a wheel between a set of forks for a custom front end.

i used several to stack up for a measurement. Once I had my length of need I had two cut down to my specs.
