Default Front wheel axle. Is this correct?

There seems to be a gap in the front axle on the right side. Is this normal. No one has a close up of their front wheel where I can look and tell. Thanks.

If you pull your axle you see the end where you put the wrench on has a shoulder so that why the gap.
Did you put the spacers in the way there suppose to be.
One spacer is longer then the other and is your wheel in the middle of the front end. Tape measure from fork leg to rim can tell you.

I just looked at my jackpot and mine looks just like the pic you posted. I can tell you for sure that my spacers are in place on both sides and I know they are correct.

That is not a gap. It is where the shoulder on the axle meets the spacer

I'm not an asshole...I just type that way

Ah, thank you. Peace of mind. It just looks wrong when you look at the other side. Just had new rubber put on and I thought maybe they left off a spacer. Thank you.
