I have a shadow front hub (not sure what kind) and when I tighten it down on the forks when the cone washer and Hub gaurd are on the wheel doesn't spin as good. But it spins fine when its loose. So I took the hub gaurd and the cone off and put it back on and then it was fine. What can I do so I can have the washer and hub gaurd on?

are the cone nuts tightened too tight?

Is it a hub guard that threads onto the axle in place of a cone washer? Something is too tight. tighten your cone washers until they are just barely snug and put your wheel on

The hub guard might be too big, or the nut may be too tight, or the hub needs to be greased up
