another challange

Is anyone willing to accept a phone call. I am on a trip and had a front tire failure Saturday afternoon. I rented a car yesterday; pulled the front wheel off today and had a new tire put on. Now am back at the bike and for the life of me cannot get the wheel back correctly. I have no access to manual. Sitting in front of the wheel; the spacer is on the right but the rotor bolts on the left hit the fork. What am I missing? I would appreciate if someone could pm me with a number to call. 05 1200lt

Re: another challange

I have received advice and it appears the bike shop left an end spacer in place after balancing the tire. Not knowing this I attempted to tighten down the axle and I moved the bearing to the point that I now have 1/2 inch play. Another 90 mile one way trip, hotel and car rental! I will post the outcome for those curious if I get home. Thanks Ernie A for the help and others that responded
