Rear Wheel spacers

I found some old threads on this but there seemed to be some controversy. What side does the flanged spacer go on? Sprocket or brake disk side? My bike had it on the brake disc side when I bought it used and I’ve just put on new tires so want to mount it properly. I did remount the wheel with the flanged spacer on they disc side but it almost looks as though the wheel is off centre towards the left side of the bike. Seems if the flanged spacer was on the sprocket side, this perceived offset may be even worse?

Then again, the perceived offset could just be the rear fender tweaked somehow. This bike has never been down

The side collar/spacer with the flange goes on the sprocket side. I'd say your rear fender was off.

Thank you for that clarification. Some previous owner or service tech must have reassembled it incorrectly but I had been running it that way for at least 11,000 km

Rear fender was off. Time to kill in the winter so had it all apart for a good clean
