Front wheel woe
on: August 31, 2013, 11:51:02 PM
Returned from holiday trip with worn tires, altered to Tr91 but it appears the front wheel is wobbly at around 50-60 kms/hr. Taken the wheel out at the dealers, looked at it thoroughly and apparently it took a knock although no dents are to be seen. It looks like some spokes had extra pressure on it because the rim is not flat at some points where the spokes are fitted. Didn`t notice the wobble before; theory is that my tire wear adjusted to the wobble. The other tire showed some different wear paterns too.   Dealer thinks it`s abnormal and is going back to Honda with a warranty claim. The wobble is awful as it is exactly top speed in the villages here...
