    Re: Bent rim advise

    So far I have put another 1500 miles on the rim and no leaks or wobbles. I think i am just going to continue to ride with it with the little bend it still has after wacking it with a board and hammer.

    I've just posted a video in the video threads. I did manage to bend my ding out a little but I think my leak was mainly due to the rim not being properly cleaned before the new tire was insatlled.

    I have about 57,000 miles on the rim I had Woody's repair. I haven't had any issues with it!

    I ran over a block of something that suddenly appeared from under a semi at 70 mph. Bent front and rear rims but the St1100 never even shook it's head. Never lost pressure. Sent them to Frame Straight in Maryville TN. Great job but slow, bought used rims to ride while waiting. While they had them let them powder coated gloss black.

    I can also recommend www.mcwheel.com
    Two weeks after purchasing a 2005 ST1300ABS I hit a chunk of roadway during rush hour traffic which bent the lip of the front rim, didn't even notice it until I got to work.
    Bought a new rim right away and found this place to repair the damaged one. Good thing too since I wound up hitting a pothole which bent the replacement. Won't go into details, but it included sun glare, rough roads and a bee sting.
