I would replace just to be sure and not have to always worry about while riding.

Have one of the local shops straighten it out. I don't know, but it might be of good use to a stunter? Sure one of them can lend some insight. I'd replace it if you plan on street riding with a non-repaired rim and tire. Have to think about the internal make-up of the tire probably was compromised and you don't want to find out the hard way running 65 mph on the highway. Your @$$ will appreciate it in the long run.

Dang, looks like someone is watching over you. Running over a 4x4 is like hitting a curb head on. There is not a chance of survival rate(without laying it down) for doing that. LOL at the comments of MSF with 2x4 and at a slow speed at that.

Ya know I went back looking for it today when I was going to class but no luck.

I posted on a Katana forum about it and someone there said I should call the state and ask them to pay for it. Yea maybe other states will, but this one... not so much. But hey I am going to give it a shot, the worse they can say is no right.

Also some genius on that forum said I must have had really low tire pressure for it to dent the rim like that. I was like "hello, did you fail to read the fact that I was doing 60?" I made reference to the pictures and pointed out that I hit just the very edge of the 4x4. I know deep down it would have been much worse had I not swerved as hard as I did.

2x4s suck, haven't lost a rim yet, but one got my mirror last week. Scratched up the windscreen and front fairing too.

Glad you made it home ok.

Be careful out there and watch your following distance.
