[ADEL] G.C. Motorcycles fit (problems)

  1. Hello All

    I went to G.C. Motorcycles in Adelaide to have a new front
    fitted on Friday. This place was recommended by a friend.

    They fitted the front rim back to front and dented my Suzuki
    badge on the handle bar (i'm unhappy about that bit of the

    Due to the rim being fitted the wrong way around (so
    that the left disc is now fitting into the right brake and visa
    versa), the left brake was dragging badly. When riding
    home, i thought it was just the new tyre running in (new
    tyres handle weird sometimes).

    I fixed the dragging brake by backing off the brake bolts
    and axial clamp bolts.. and getting my old man to jump
    up and down on it and then retighted.

    I was wondering if these rims are engineered to
    only go on (and turn) in a certain way ?

    .. Or can they go on any way ?

    Cheers ;)
