Looking for the TRUE man in WNC!

I need the front wheel of my 96 DR350 trued! I did not noticed when I purchased her that the front wheel was slightly warped. I had my TA rear wheel re-laced by Woody's Wheel Works in Colorado and they did a great job but I'm looking for someone closer.

The warpage does not really effect the riding but it does bother me. Any ideas?

You can do it yourself...easy.

Put bike on lift
remove tire, tube, and bandstrap from rim.
loosen the spokes as you wish
Remount on bike.

Now make a jig and place in at the 6 O'clock of the rim ( ie put it on the floor)

The jig should just be as close to the rim as possible.
side to side and up and down is what you are looking for.

spin rim and tighten spokes as needed.

Easy as pie
