My son and I are rebuilding a slightly damaged K75S. So far so good, after taking the cracked fairing off, the bike rides great with the exception of a slightly bent front wheel so any guidance on that would be appreciated. Other than that some fairly normal paint and body work should get the old girl back on the road. My son currently rides a V-Star 650, and I ride my beloved R1150R.
I look forward to being a part of the forum, thanks in advance for any advice I can glean from your posts.

I think you need to define 'slightly bent front wheel' for us?

The wheel looks to be bit less than a quarter of an inch out. No other apparent damage, but I have heard that the three spoke wheels bend pretty easily.

Although BMW does not recommend repairing wheel damage there are shops that specialise in wheel repair. Whether to replace or to repair will come down to whether you can find a suitable replacement and the cost of replacing compared to the cost of repairing. There are more Y spoke wheels around than the three spoke ones.
Regards Martin.
