Where do these spacers go?

The first one I heard fall while changing my front wheel, I had rolled the front wheel slightly in between the forks to keep it upright. Then later in the day the other got flung up by my tire when rolling it back into the pit area or else I wouldn't have seen it. I'm not even 100% sure they're from my bike, but I was in that area for 2 days and they only appeared the second day during the wheel change. I rode the rest of the day with no problems.

Any ideas?

They go into the seals on each side of the front wheel before you put the axle back through. I pull mine out when I change my tires so I won't lose them.

EDIT : I didn't read your entire post, they aren't from your bike if it's an 07-08. Specially if you rode all day with no problems.

You know, I didn't really look at the ruler, i just saw that they feel out of the front wheel, but your right, they are are the small side.

still think they are from the front calipers. When you pull the bolts they go in between the caliper and the mounts.

That's got to be right, never had mine just fall out though.

Thanks guys, this weekend I'll take the calipers off but it looks like that's where they're from. First time I've seen them, I'm guessing I knocked the wheel into one of the calipers that was just hanging and they popped out.
