    Boxxer Race fork - what front hub width?

    I bought a new Boxxer Race dual crown fork to install on a DH frame. I had a set of wheels:
    Front wheel: Sun Demon hub, 20mm thru axle,
    Rear wheel: Sun Demon hub, 12mm axle, 150mm width
    The front wheel slides around in the front axle. It's way too narrow for the width of the front axle. Should I have adaptors to make it fit in there? Or do I need to go to a wider front hub?
    Here's the hubset:

    Here's the fork (no information on hub size):

    Someone know what I need to do to the front wheel?
    Thanks,
    J

    All 20mm through axle hubs are 110mm wide. Sounds like you are missing at least one of the end caps (as shown on the Sun site it is missing one).

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    Okay, so there's two spacers? One on either side of the hub?

    Okay, maybe it only came with the left one. Geez, the dealer wants $30 for one!
