Non-directional front wheel.

Recommended Posts

So it was time for a front tire on my FZ07. I do all my own mounting and balancing of tires for 30 years now or so.  This is the first bike ever where the wheel can be installed either way with no difference. Never happened on ANY bike to me before.

There also are no arrows on the rim or the rotors.  A first time there also.

What there IS is a directional pattern to the spokes that matches the rear wheel so I removed the old OEM Michelin PR3 (only 8100 miles, not good)  and used a silver sharpie to put arrows on the rim inside.  I also always balance the bare rim and mark the heavy spot which is never at the valve stem. Need less weights this way.

So if this is your first front tire or you bought your FZ used it needs checked.
