Coming back late to the party.

I would do more than just report this to the dealer. I would be screaming at them.

This is pure incompetence!

I mean, I'm not sure if there is an easier maintenance item than mounting a wheel correctly on the bike.

Maybe, changing the oil.

Ironically, I've seen mechanics screw that up too by putting too much oil in.

Did this damage your rotor at all? If so, I think I would have the dealership replace it for free. But, I wouldn't let them install it. LOL

Sheesh!

I haven't had time to stop by the dealer; let's see what happen.

BTW, I did a ride today and never felt that good on my bike;
brakes were operating wonderfully smooth (thanks to me);
my Corbin with the latest touch-ups they made this winter was so comfortable;
heated grips were so warm;
there was no cold air stream just getting its way into the neck or wrists;
the sweet cavernous sound of the Delkevics was so great (did a winter overhaul to get them more quiet)...

I could not break this feeling by thinking of this brakes issue.

Not much miles today but what a feeling after this long harsh cold winter...

Really, I used so much caution with this that I did not see any damage to the rotors. But this is a good question and I will look at it again tomorrow.

Just reading the updates, I'm pleased your happy Dan, It's a nice feeling solving a problem, just a cautionary note though, did you check the tyre and wheel orientation are correct, they both have arrows showing which way they should spin, If they put the spacers in incorrectly, I'd have a quick look to make sure.

I joined this forum today to thank Paul and the other contributors to this thread for recommendations that helped me with a rear brake drag problem. The rear of the three pistons apparently was not retracting at all on release of the brakes, but a thorough cleaning seems to have solved it. Thanks!

Check to make sure all of the parts are in the right location.
If the spacers are on the wrong side, it will offset the wheel, in the wrong direction and cause drag.

There's a specific step by step procedure depicted in the shop manual to install a front wheel on the ST. I was told by few clever guys on this site to follow it.
