Wheel alignment

So I got my rear tyre done and I refitted the wheel in the swing arm but there is a small spacer that fits inside the main spacer on the left side of the rear wheel but I couldn't get that in so I left it out and did the nut up on the spindle but I can't stop thinking maybe that has put the alignment out, how do you check the alignment

FFS if there is a spacer that has not gone back in DO NOT RUN THE BIKE YOU WILL FECK THE WHEEL BEARING. There, did I say that loud enough? Wheel spacers are there for a reason - to hold the wheel in the correct position on the axle. Get a manual or a parts diagram and work out what you have got wrong. 'Cos you will have.

The main spacer is in just a little insert which adds another 1/8th of an inch or so and when I did the nut up the nut pulled the gap up so the wheel hasn't shifted

Only thing I'm now wondering is has it shifted the centre line of the front rear wheel alignment slightly, and I'm not sure if I over tightened the chain abit, when I got my missus to sit on the bike and I checked it the was maybe 15/20 mm up and down slack

check you have fitted parts in correct area

from left hand side(chain side ) you should have


split pin


nut


washer


swing arm


Spacer


then the sprocket carrier WHICH IF YOU HAVE REMOVED MAKE SURE YOU HAVE PLACED THE CORRECT SPACER INBETWEEN THAT AND THE WHEEL.IT IS THE ONE WITH TWO DIFFERENT SIZED ENDS (42036)but doesn't look like a top hat .(one end sits inside the sprocket carrier bearing)


Wheel


Top hat washer with smaller end into the wheel


Brake caliper mounting


swingarm


axle bolt head

I do believe that's where I have gone wrong, I'm going to replace all wheel bearings on Thursday so all will be put right in 2 days
