SM Wheel Lateral Runout


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

I have just gotten my hands on a set of CBR-250R wheels that I'm fitting to my DRZ400.

Now these wheels are not perfect and have a bit of lateral runout. About 4 mm.

Is this something to worry about?

Cheers,

Brett

The general spec is 2mm maximum run out. Are these spoke wheels or cast wheels? Spokes can be adjusted. Straightening cast is a lot harder. Spokes are easy to adjust to less then 1mm run out.

I can't say if you will have a problem or not with 3mm, but 3mm runout is a lot and pretty noticeable by eye.

Ahh sorry about that ... I forgot to mention that they are cast wheels.

I have trued a few spoked wheels in my time, but these are my first cast wheels so I'm unsure what is normal and what I can get away with.

Cheers,

Brett
