FSA Omega Adenture Megaexo crank wave washer

I stuck the wave washer on the DS of the crank.

Anyone know if this is correct?

An FSA video didnít use a wave washer.

A PDF showed the internal connect shaft attached to the NDS crank arm.

The instructions with the BB shows two washers, but doesnít say which is wavey.

I had one of those and pretty sure the wavy washer went on the drive side. Actually mine was an Omega double.

I could not find my crank set on the FSA site.

this PDF is close.

i was uncertain of the washer should go with the hollow spindle or with the NDS.

I apologize, this reply is correct. I get things backward in my brain sometimes. I looked at a Park Tool video, Bjack312 is absolutely right, nds

Yeah, you want the wavy washer to pull the drive side crank hard against the bearing so there's no movement to mess with the shift indexing.

Interesting - all my other bikes are square taper cranks.
I was debating how to reply with - "but it's a single speed!" -- but couldn't figure out how to say it without sounding snarky. - but, yep, a single speed. Still don't want slop in the chainline.

Thanks. Lately I've had all the snark I can handle. It's easier to remember rules if you understand the reasoning behind them.
