Anyway if you haven't done all this do it. It's like riding a different bike when you get it right
ok so let me get this straight ?!? i take a string and run it down the left side of the bike
then take a second string and run it down the right side of the bike,
then move both stings together till they touch the edges of the front and rear tires,
now this is where i get lost!!!
1 where do i measure? front of bike, undercarriage, rear of bike
2 do both tires need to be completely removed from the rim's?
3 what do you do to prop the bike if you don't have a centerstand? i'm sure/positive the kickstand would create a lean...
4 what do i loosen or tighten? the axle bolt's
my left rear tire from a standing point behind the bike is cocked left...
the bike only wobbles when i take my hands off the grips soon as i put a finger on it, it straightens up...
i rode the bike a few day's ago and it didn't have this wobble at all
the only thing i did was put the front caliper and master cylinder back on
note to keep in mind, the bike HAS been wrecked previously into a house, speed unknown, and the only major damage was the upper fairing, fairing stay, and left can, gauges and everything still work but due to crash the mounts broke off so i haven't had it on the bike to give you an accurate speed... i will take a picture of the back wheen tomorrow and post it here if i can figure out how lol... and i'll take the front brake caliper off...
