Just did this last night with leftover plastic from a venom parts bag. Only difference is I used plastic on both sides, no glueing. I have a new rim but was using my old hubs, partly because I have the disk brake hub on left side. You wouldnt think it was a new wheel with all the slop it had man it was awful. Wish I could have driven the bike and before/after the fix to see if I notice anything difference but I doubt my skills are that good anyways. Wheel feels rock solid like a truely new bike wheel would. I need to add this to the site.
Oh while Im hear, not sure but has the tip for shortening the red spacer been posted here. That would be a good one to save before it gets lost as the hot topic in the mm450 bike thread moves on to other topics lol.
