    If you have the 4RT260 with Tech fork (3ED version), I don't believe there's a spacer. There is a spacer on the Repsol 4RT260 with the Showa fork (4ED version). Check both the owners manual and the parts manual. Neither shows a spacer (AKA: collar) on the 4RT260 versions with Tech forks.

    It's an easy check on the bike. Just remove the disk cover & caliper, then install the front wheel with the parts you have. Slide the caliper onto the rotor and see if its mounts are in the same plane as the fork mounting lugs.

    Thanks, 3ED, checking the way you described the caliper lines up perfect so no spacer. Interestingly page 5-2 of my owners manual states "install the axle from the right side through the wheel and left side collar" that made me think for sure I'd somehow lost the spacer.
    I now need to buy a Repsol, i have spare wheel collar for it.:bash

    I have a '17 260 and the only spacer I see is on the side opposite the rotor. It looks like it is about 1/2" long, silver in color.

    You're right, it looked like a separate piece. My bike is too clean!

    Had a buddy ride my 4rt and ditch his sherco the same day. Ended up finding a Leftover 2016 300RR here in PA and pulled the trigger. Saved almost a grand... cant wait to ride it.

    It is what it is but definitely worth the wait.

    It may be worth it, but would be much nicer if they would just tell people, we can't give you a firm date tell it's in our warehouse. And if people push for a date say well best guess is (lookup the current estimated date and then add 3 months) then say and that could change.

    Well I will continue to be impatient at this point... (I started being impatient today when I found out it was pushed out again...) :dunno

    Oh and I should add, impatient or not I am not being rude to the dealership as it isn't there fault. :thumb

    ...What Lineaway said. :nod

    Or, this late in the year, I'd be tempted to wait and get a 2018. :D
