Master Mike Spacer Install, Poor tolerances (Suzuki)

Received my spacers in the mail yesterday, Mike does very nice work, hell, the material probably cost most of the fifty bucks, great job, he is doing everyone a favor delivering them to your door for what he charges, thank you Mike! I took the hub in to straighten the shoulder up, originally machined unevenly, off at an angle I did not bother measuring the difference but mine was substantial at best, almost as if the hub were cocked when they machined it. Trued it up all around. Something worth looking at when you are doing the job, you can merely run your fingernail around the bearing carrier and feed the ridge change height, this was the case with mine anyways. Your mileage may vary as I hear they do this by hand, quick, fast and in a hurry. I am making a new SS spacer and axle retaining/adjusting thingies for the fun of it, photos later. As they say, a picture is worth a thousand words. Sorry about the quality of the photo, camera phone that works better as a paperweight, but thats a whole other forum
