I have an '07 I bought used with low mileage and I doubt the front end has been apart. It looks like the collared spacer is on the throttle side with the collar facing the fork. Also, on page 13-13 of the FSM, it appears to show the collar in this position. I think it's the right side of the wheel based on the angle of the wheel spokes. So I think that other diagram is flat out wrong - interesting.
I'm glad you brought this up. I usually regard those FSM diagrams as gospel truth. Not so, apparently.
