ISO replacement front wheel.

I hit a pothole last week that clacked my teeth together, and my front rim is bent on both sides. I know that a bent rim can be heated and bent back into shape, but if I'd be more comfortable with a structurally undamaged rim. If any of y'all have put aftermarket/carbon wheels on your bikes and have your OEM wheels laying around then I'd like to have one.

Good luck I hit a chunk of cinderblocks and put a small dent in one side of mine so far I have yet to find a used/ salvage one anywhere in USA. Suzuki wants over 800 usd for a new one. Mine is not noticable really sounds like you have more damage. If you find more than one let me know I'll take the other one.

The solution is almost always more throttle!
