There should be some gap there. Did you use a torque wrench putting wheel back on? Torquing to spec is important for the front wheel.

47ft lbs for the Axel
24ft lbs for the pinch bolt

This is great!! My first post.
I've been trying to track down this squeek for a while. I replaced the brake pads, then wondered if the caliper was warped. Then, maybe the wheel bearings. So, I'm hoping to tackle the speed sensor next. Anyone know the size of the Allen Key required to remove the axle key? Metric I believe.
Thanks for the information guys. I'm not a mechanic, but I feel empowered now after reading this!

I dont remember the wrench size off the top of my head but I'm 98% sure both wrenches were in my (factory issued) tool pouch. Hope that helps.

Pinch bolt is 8mm, axle is 12mm, torque settings will be in your owner's manual and, yes, the correct allen keys are supplied in your tool kit with the bike, though I use inhex sockets to use the torque wrench.
Front axle 65N.m, 47lb/ft front axle pinch bolt 33N.m, 24lb/ft.

Many Thanks

Great thread guys! I've had this sqeaky-rubbing noise at the front wheel all summer and didn't know what it was. I was about to give up when I read this!
And sure enough, the axle and speed sensor was dry as a bone (or close to it).
So, I'm hoping the grease I smeared everywhere will do the trick, as no parts were broken or worn.
Thanks again!

Could a dry speedo magnet be a reason for loud whine at 60 kmph that stops when i reach 80? The sound comes atexactly 60 kmphirrespective of gear, weather,incline etc. bike is cold or hot, no matter what oil i use.? The sound goes when i holdthe clutch and comes when i accelerate....

I'd be checking the drive shaft spline, make sure that's greased up.

I spoke to the stealership and had a long argument. They juz wont get my point. He kept stuck to the fact that its sealed from the factory and u dont need any maintenance except gear oil. I still stuck to what i wanted to be done and he said come by we will have a look. Im going to take an exploded view of the final gear picture with me and tell them exactly where to put the grease. And what all to check for wear and tear. I dont trust them but its gonna be cheaper than me buying a bike lift and tools. Hopefully they will do it right. He wanted to open up the engine and i said no ways!!
