Take a rubber mallet to it and ensure the sprocket carrier is going all the way in the hub. New rubbers is a "tight" fit, and that is a very good thing.

Thanks B,

But 1)should it be flush?,

2) Should I take it off and add a little lube, if yes, what kind of lube? small amount of tire lube, won't degrade rubber

So close to getting the wheel back on, don't want to mess up now, light at the end of the long tunnel

Just make sure everything in the hub area is clean. A bit of Windex won't hurt a thing. Like BigB says, tight is good! After the first time it will be easy.

Just install the wheel. The axel will push it in that last little bit. Hope you have the spacer in there and correctly positioned. The spacer will determine the final position of the sprocket carrier.

I hate to force them since its scrubbing the rubber surface. I use a little silicone spray when I do them.

Ended up rubbing a small amount of tire lube on the metal of the sprocket metal hubs that fit into the rubber cushing.

Good cleaning on both sides...back the road today
