Rim flat spot

Discussion in 'Technical and Troubleshooting Torque' at netrider.net.au started by tickford gt, Dec 5, 2011.

  1. Hi All
    does any know of a place in Newcastle who repair rims
    mine has a nice flat spot after last week rain hit a massive pot hole :cry:
    Cheers Glenn

  2. Honda's own spec allows for + or - 2mm, so if you are competent with a big hammer and a block or 2 of wood, the world's your Oyster. I've got them within 0.5mm this way, so it is possible. That's if all else fails.
  3. also sounds a lot cheaper than getting it professionally repaired if you get it right
  4. +1 Roarin.
    A big knockometer and lump of hardwood, round off the end of the wood slightly to roughly match the curve of the rim.
    Now give your mate the big hammer, hold the block of wood steady at the right spot and say "When I nod my head, hit it".
  5. Thanks Guys will give that a go
