    If it were me, I would want the front and rear wheels to look the same.
    Can confirm the parts bike is an XJ. Funny because I built the carbs from a combination of the two bikes. I might grab the from wheel too. The XJ and XS share the same exhaust headers right?

      Correct, no spacer on the right side of the caliper bracket, only the larger one at the wheel bearing. The 16" wheel is actually 1/2" wider. That is the reason for different spacer setup.

        When re assembling remember to tighten (torque) the axle nut before the pinch bolt on the end of swing arm. Checking rotor /caliper and brackets are lineup correctly before finally tightening pinch bolt.

          I've got a pair of the 777's (HD rear) with a couple of hundred miles on them. They ride nice on sunny days.
