1979 gs750 rear axle confusion

Hey all. I had to take the rear wheel off of my gs750 to get a new tube last fall. Life happened and didn’t have a chance to put it back on until now. Going to re mount it I noticed a few extra spacers that don’t appear in the manual. Wondering if anyone could help me with the order they need to be put on. Thanks for the help!

I borrowed your first pic for illustration.

Blue goes into the sprocket side of the wheel, the dust seal holds it in place.

Red goes flange-side into the rotor side of the wheel, then the caliper mounting bracket goes between that and the small spacer circled in yellow.

hopefully that makes sense.....

should be in this order left to right.

Bolt head - Axle adjuster - "blue" spacer - wheel - "red" spacer - caliper bracket - "yellow" spacer - axle adjuster - washer - nut
