Total Newbie Rear Wheel Question Cr250

Discussion in 'Technical and Troubleshooting Torque' started by bigo, Feb 4, 2005.

  1. Hey All Im A total Newbie to bikes and just got a cr250, the back rim (see pic) has a bad in it ;) but not my bad ;)
    ne how i didnt notice till later and havnt been able to ride it yet cos i took the clutch cover and crap off to fix an oil leak so i dont know how bad the rim is out yet.
    but im able to wobble the spokes i though they were ment to be quite tight?

  2. Doesn't look good. I'd be getting that fixed or replaced! You shouldn't be able to wobble those spokes.

    btw. Welcome to the forums, hopefully someone in the know will be able to give you an idea if it can be repaired or needs to be replaced.
  3. bugger so i cant just tighten them?
    ne idea's on an appox cost?
