    Geek, I stole your picture: on the italian KTM forum a guy was trying to convince everyone that carbon fibre wheel would be good on the Adventure.
    Hope you don't mind.

    With that dent I was still able to ride 2 more days :ricky

    Wouldn't be able to do that with a shattered carbon wheel.

    I'll drop it off at Woody's on Monday and get them to put an A60 1.6 on it.

    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.
