850 T front wheel

Of the wheels I've seen, the brake disc is mounted on the side of the rim which has the Borrani markings stamped into it (right side when fit to the motorcycle). The brake disc receives the thicker of the two spacers/bearing carriers.

Thanks to Charlie Mullendore of Antietam Classic Cycle for sending this information to me via email. In Charlie's own words

Photo attached of the bearing and spacer setup. The longer side and collar go towards the rear drive (but you already knew that). Thought a photo might be helpful as to how it comes apart seems to be a recurring question on Wildguzzi. I used a 14 mm socket as a drift to drive the spacer and drive side bearing out, then a chunk of 1 inch diameter brass to drive the brake side bearing out.
