I just installed mine today.
I just installed mine today. Like the previous responder, you have to take great care in putting in the new spacers. Here's the way I did it and should almost be in the notes like this:
Use a long skinny copper wire or something equivalent (I actually used a spare allen wrench). Take needlenose pliers and hold the spacer above where you need to install it. While still holding the spacer with the pliers, slide the wire through the spacer and down through the bottom hole of the bike. From there you can just release the spacer from the pliers and it will drop right into the hole. Start on the 3 exposed holes first and then do the inside "covered" hole.
I did it like this and didn't have any problems and am very happy with the results.
I still need to figure out how to add the red reflector. I don't think the way I left it is all the way correct even though it looks great. Anybody out there know?
