Aye-Aye,
Anybody got any idea why the spin-offs don't fit the rear wheels?

I haven't got those parts yet but I'll certainly be interested to see them...

My rear wheel etc just arrived and yes, you're correct.
The spinner collar is bigger than the locating hole.

Not a major problem as I'll sand the collar down to fit but it's an error.
I'll pass the info to Admin.

All the best, Roy.

Visually, it looks like you'd have to sand-down pretty close to where the magnet is housed.
Might be easier drilling out the wheel centre a tad?
I'm lucky enough to own a pillar drill, so shouldn't be too hard?

There's really not much in it, is there?
You could sand-down the spinners a bit, or scrape/sand
the paint off, in the recess wher the spinner fits.
Certainly, I got both spinners fitted with minimum effort.

I had the same problem but I am lucky enough to own a lathe so was able to reduce the diameter at the back of the spinner only to find that the wheel retaining screw is deeper in to the wheel so had to machine the shoulder deeper on the back of the spinner to get the magnet closer to the screw head otherwise it would fall out at the slightest touch.

I also had the same problem, filing down the spinner until it fitted did the job for me.
