Put three more in it. One across the tire on opposite side of the existing dent, and two 180* on each side of the rim. Then it should balance better.

Not mine, but Geeks.

I would say part of the problem is the TKC-80, very soft sidewall. I run the MT-21 and have avoided the problem for quite some time.

Wrights lake.
Nice ride! I used to take my plated 300exc up to that area. The ride got pretty long on that bike though....must be nice on your beast! Looks as though i may be getting a 950 soon. Wish I still lived in that area to make full use of the bike!

It's about time (page 1000) to show my baby. Nothing special ATM but I 'm in love with her, wishing for the best (off road happiness). Pictures are from my tour to Chios Island (Greece).
