2nd that thought. You're better off getting yourself another one. There's things one just doesn't do on a motorcycle....straightening the wheel is one of them

Sunny told me of a guy on the SE side that does a bangup job on bent wheels. You will need to get the wheel off the bike obviously and take the tire off. I don't have much info about the shop but I will try to get it. I believe it is $40/wheel. However, you may have to repaint the wheel after they fix it, or why not take advantage of the opportunity and have ScooterTrash powdercoat them both

Doubt the 14 and 10R wheels fit. I love the look of the 14 wheels. The design is pretty close to the big $ aftermarket ones. They would look sick anodized.

Sounds like you got a plan, glad I could help.

I use A1.
They charge between $75.00 to $125.00 depending on how bad the wheels is.
If they can't fix it, there's no charge.

I have heard some people putting zx6 wheels on a zx14 for weight savings, cheaper than aftermarket wheels and they supposedly mount right up.
The zx14 wheels are some of the heaviest around, don't think you want them on smaller lighter bike
