Front wheel drag on my SP1

Since last tire change, I can't seem to get the front brakes, for no drag?

The spacer goes on the left. Is there a way to get better brake drag?
Maybe my technique is bad.

Put axle. tighten bolt on axle.
Tighter lower 12mm clamp bolts.

Am I doing something wrong?

Insert front axle with long spacer to right fork leg (rider's right), short spacer to left fork leg.
Hold axle and tighten axle nut to spec, followed by right pinch bolts.
Check that left fork leg inner surface is flush with index mark on axle, tighten pinch bolts to spec.
