Does this look normal?

Have recently changed over from an Ultegra Crank to a FSA Kforce Light crank.

Having followed the installation guidelines for a BSA frame fitment, there is a gap between the BB and the left crank arm where the wave spring washer is. (see pic)

Would I need an adjustable spacer as well?

It does appear  so.

 

Thanks. Dr Google also indicates so.

Many would disagree but 2.5mm spacer each side and NO WAVY WASHER. Wavy washer is only for PF BB. THE drive side bearing also has the plastic insert taking from 25mm ID to 24mm
