After changing out my 2015 Tiger XCx front tire and going for a short ride n (300 miles) noticed a bit of vibration thru the bars. While taking off the front wheel, had an issue with the right side wheel spacer stuck to the spindle/axle. Was a PITA to get off. Cleaned up everything and greased all well before I put the wheel back on, before ride. Left side spacer slides on and off no issues. Right side will not? Any advice would be greAtly appreciated. Thank You.....

I'd replace it, it must have surface damage that if making it bind up. I guess you could polish it but they can't be very expensive.

Thanks Vector, already ordered spacers for both sides. Just wondering what may have caused this issue? Have never seen this happen before.

Have a look at the spindle it may have a slight bend in it ?

Thank You, I did look at the possibility of the spindle having a slight bend. I does not, the left side spacer slides all the way on and off no issues. But the right spacer has to be pushed on and then will not move.
