I bent a rim the other day...
« on: October 11, 2018, 02:37:08 AM »
Last week, while riding Angeles Crest, I came around a curve and found a pile of rocks in my path. I failed to miss them all...
Bent my front rim in two places, one on each side.   :006:
So I looked for someplace to get them repaired, and found Dr. Johns Motorcycle Frame Straightening, located in Anaheim California.
I was able to drop the rim off in the morning and pick it up that afternoon. Not only did they fix the wheel without scratching the paint, but they trued the brake rotors as well. Didn't even damage the rim tape!  :152:
I'm happy with the result. If you are in the SoCal area, and need their services, here is the link:

5 years ago. One a ride thru the states on my Versys, I rode Angeles Crest and saw a ski resort. I rode up the slope and camped where the chairlift ends.

What a great road!

Have noticed a noise coming from the front of the bike lately when riding slow. It stops when i squeeze the front brake so i think one or both rotors might be off. Have seen that a few Versys 1000 owners have had their rotors replaced through warranty but my warranty was over in Sept. So I'll be taking it to the place you posted to get your rim fixed seems they true rotors also at a very reasonable price $40-$60 a rotor. Thats better than over $600.00 for a set of new rotors...
