wobble in the front wheel CAN IT BE FIXED?

Post by itsacbx »

Hey all, My 79 CBX has a tiny wobble in the rim, enough to be seen when looking down at the wheel when riding and enough to be noticeable, particularly when heeled over in a corner when the front wheel kinda shimmies sideways......
No it isnt the tyre [brand new Dunlopski, wheel is balanced, new fork oil etc......
Is there a method to take a wobble out and maybe hit the rivet once to lock them in place if you know what I mean?????
I have another [as new] wheel but it suffers from an identical if not worse wobble.
In simpler terms, can Comstars be straightened?

Yes, they can be trued. Frame Straight Systems in TN does an excellent job, but you might wait a while. http://framestraightsystem.com/
