I can use some help.

I had my wheels painted on 2016 Panigale 1299. I polished the front wheel where the rotors bolt on. It is super clean bear metal. The problem is when I tighten the bolts on the break calipers the front wheel locks up wont move.

Wheel is polished for flush rotor mount
Bearings seated correctly (check by mechanic)
I have a print out of the font wheel parts for mounting
Spacers in right place, axle travels good through wheel and bearings
Calipers line up perfect to break rotors. (no forcing to line up)
Removed fluid reservoir cap and compressed pistons on both calipers

As i tighten calibers by hand with out torque the wheel just locks up. I been over and over this and at the point of getting the bike towed to the Dealer for service.

Any suggestions would be great ??

Sounds like the spacers between the calipers and the fork bottom have been left out ??
