I bummed my stock wheels up pretty bad Sat. I was kinda standing with one knee on the seat (I know most of yall do this) I reached up to get my sunglasses and I lost my balance and wiped out I am still HURTING but went riding yesterday anyway . Well now left front is rolling to the left while going straight and the Right rear is wobbling real bad. I am hoping that the rear is just a bent wheel. (got new SS112's on the way). But the front is what I am wondering what is wrong. The inside of the wheel hit the A arm. What do I need to do to get it rolling the right way now. Take it to the dealer's shop?? Thanks for the help I am not going to put on the new SS112 and Swamp Lites on til I can get it fixed ??

Jack the front up and spin the tire if it wobbles then the rim is probably bent. If it is pulling one way then you may just have a tie rod bent. That is what I think.

i did the samething the first weekend i took mine out... i was going about 50mph down a dirt road and hit a pot hole pretty bad...i flew feet over head over the handle bars and landed flat on my back... the bike rolled a little bit. no plastic was messed up but one of my front tires was pointing to the outside of the bike about 4 inches more than it should. i took it to the dealership where i bought it and told them that i think it came like that. lol they looked at me like i was crazy and i gave them the same look back. b/c it was a brand new bike they fixed it for me and all it was was the tie rod was pulled out of place. not bent. it took 3 wrenches and maybe 15 min to fix. as far as the back tire, wow. u had one **** of a wreck. hope everything turns out good for u. take it as a good lesson learned, i know i sure did!

Well the rear tire was just a bend wheel I swapped them from right to left and it wobbled on the left side too. I could not find what I bent on the front.

Last night I put my new Swamp Lites on the rear and was hoping that the UPS man would be here this morning, he has not made it here yet. I I took it to Cycle world this morning. I was telling the service man what happened. I told him what I thought it was and he said yep I can see where it has shifted. So I am hoping that it is just the lower A arm ball joint and just that. So we will see.
