Question

I might be having some front end issues with my 01' XRR. Originally I noticed my front tire was closer to right hand fork tube (if your sitting on the bike). I can barely get a index finger between the tire and the fork tube, but the other side has plenty of room. I checked the normal things like, does the wheel spin without the disc dragging? check. does the tire wobble? a little. so i figured it had to be a spoke problem, I tried trueing the spokes, but noticed most of them were stripped. So I sent it out to get the front and rear rims relaced. Now i have bran spanky new spokes, but the damn tire is in the same spot. Anyone have this same problem? My mechanic decided it had to be engineered this way. The original reason I got into this mess is, because the front end seemed to wash out on me very easily. Could this be a mechinal problem, or is it rider error? Thanks in advance for any information.

I believe the service manual lists a specific dimension for how far off center a wheel can be laced. By any chance did they measure your old wheel to set the center spacing on the new wheel? EDIT: I would measure to verify that the hub/wheel offset dimension is correct, and if it's out of spec, contact whoever relaced the wheels.

But if it's within spec according to the service manual, then there is no problem.

Are they OEM wheels or a motard set?

OEM wheels. No they didnt measure before relacing. I wasnt really thinking about that, i was just hoping new spokes would fix the problem. Need to find my manual. does anyone have the recomended spacing handy? as soon as i can figure it out i'll post up a picture.

Well at least the spokes shouldn't be stripped anymore so you can correct the problem, if it is a problem. When I bought my bike it was surprisingly off center. I just ran it, put about 5k miles on them since and forgot about it until you mentioned it, so it seems like no big deal as long as it isn't rubbing. YMMV

The rear wheel on my old xrr was laced so that it was too far to the right. I wanted to run a larger tire, but the offset wouldn't allow it. I figured when I could afford new wheels, I'd get it fixed. Til then, I'd run it, and I never had a problem with it.

So im guessing its more rider error. It is a much heavier bike than my rm250. I have'nt been riding it at all because i've been putting money into here and there. Hopefully a few more parts then its good to go. I will try and find more information later on, thanks for all your help to those who answered.

Wheel centering

zeroblah,
Just checked mine! Stock wheel laced correctly, never been reworked !
I have about the same space left and right! The left fork tube to tire space is a tad bigger maybe 1-2mm than the right, but not by much.
The hub and the spacers will control the rotor placement in the calipers, so no worries there, unless your right wheel spacer is the wrong width. Then you fork tubes will get pulled in/out and cause other problems. If your left wheel spacer is wrong the rotor will not work correctly causing a dangerous riding situation.
To me it sounds like an offset problem in lacing if the wheel spears are correct.
Hope this helps!

Not exactly as I had remembered, doesn't give a tolerance for the spacing, just lists what it should be at, "Wheel hub to rim distance 20.3mm | .80in.", so whotf knows what's allowable. I'm surprised they don't give a tolerance, from an engineering perspective, because in reality, there is no such thing as dead nuts mostly.

Well it is visibly closer to one side than the other. The crappy thing is I just had it relaced. So you think it would have been somewhere near the middle? Right? I mean i've never laced a rim myself. Could be paranoia? like I said as soon as I find the camera i'll take a picture. hopefully I can figure this out, because after this is stator, finish up the electrical and im done!

I noticed the exact same thing on my 05XRR
When I took the wheel off, installed a new tire and then reset the wheel, everything is straight. Dont know what it was...

Just for reference, just measured mine roughly, right side tire to fork is about half inch or a hair less, left side is over an inch. Not noticable when I ride. That's how the bike came, I thought of trying to fix it, but rather leave it than to make it even but not round.
