Hi All, I've got some washers here, at least somewhere, I'm sure they are closer to 1.00mm thick thou, they are factory as came with my hubs when I bought new, RD500, would be the same for RD550 as well I would think, the diff between the 2 are where they place the bearing on the rear hub, the better version places the bearing on the outside on the freewheel side, the cheaper was on the inner side, the only external way of telling was wether the hub shell was anodised or polished, and its too long ago for my brain to remember......regards wayne davidson Invers NZ........
