Ok this may be on subject but off just a hair... I was on my way home last night and hit a 4x4 post that fell out of a truck... I was doing about 55mph and hit it dead on... PUCKER MUCH! I did not go down and the bike did good, other then a bend in the rim. I was able to nurse it home with out issues as the tires and everything checked out... but the rim is bent outward on both sides where it came in contact with the sharp corners of the 4x4 wood. They push out about 1/2 inch on the left side and a bit more then 1/4 inch on the right. There is a bump...bump...bump..bump.bump.bumpbumpbumpbump as I ride. So I know that the rim is bent in some. I am not sure what to do... Try a repair or replace. Could someone let me know a good after market front wheel for a 2008 KLR or advice on how to fix this. I wanted to try here before I went to the DEALER due to cost. Either way I am sure I am going to be out a few bills on this one, but at least I did not go down and I am ok.
Again I am looking for advice on repair or replace and if replace... where and what. ie:OEM or a stronger aftermarket.
Thanks guys and I hope all of you are safe,
