I got new rubber that fit in the back of the hub. In what order do the thick and thin rubbers fit into the back of the hub?
When you are looking at your bike straight on from the left side, put the thicker ones in front(in the direction of travel).
Correct, and the new rubber can make it extremely hard to install the wheel back on. You might try using dishwashing liquid to make it easier, but don't use any petroleum-based products. You may have to heat the wheel up a bit also. I know it took two of us to get it back on.
When I put mine on I coated them with rubber grease everything went together very smoothly.
Dielectrical grease (what Norton owner would be without this!) works well and is good for the rubber.
