    1982 250r front wheel not centered???

    Just wondering if anyone can confirm this. I have an Ď82 250r all stock, completely original tires and everything from the original owner and Iíve noticed that the front wheel is about 3/8Ē offset to the clutch side of the bike. Iíve taken every measurement I can and everything is perfect, nothings bent at all including the forks and triple. I took the front end all apart and verified parts as to the manual and itís all there in its right place and way. Iíve seen other pictures online of the 81/82 and some look to have about the same offset. Is this normal or am I over looking something?

    Although Iím new to this model, I wanted to say mine has the same difference. If youíre on the machine, it measures 1Ē from the right & 5/8 on the left.

    Yeah it wouldn’t surprise me at all if it was normal to have a slight offset. I’ve seen Willys and FJ40’s have odd measurements that are intentional. I’m guessing Honda changed something on the 82 front end compared to the 81 and instead of manufacturing a new front end, they just adapted it to accept a new part.
