:3question: How easily is a rotor bent????????? please help


ok heres what happen i bought a an 05 660r test drove it awsome quad. D**khead at shop loaded quad on to my truck using a fork lift. with on of the forklift blades on my rear brake rotor!!!. i get home take her around the block and all i hear is a sqeaking noise! so i put the bike up on a stand and watch the wheels spin the right tire wobbles a bit and i can totally see my rotor wobbling rubbing my calipers. is it possible that my axle bent or is it more likely it was just the rotor that bent?

Regardless of what is bent, take it back and make the idiots fix it.

Right on Quadmaniac, and if it still has that plastic dust shield under its axle, replace it with something that is made of metal so it protects the rotor rather then just looks like it might

i tried and they arent cooperating. theyre blaming me for it. thier excuse is "it ran fine while it was here" "we dont know what you did with it when you left" so theyre not being helpful at all. could the fork lift possibly have bent the axle or just the rotor. i mean it was only the weight of the bike and he didnt bang it or jerk it around.

raise the rear tires and spin the tire manually to see what is not moving correctly. or if the rotor is bent.

i raised the rear and spinned the tire manually and at certain points the rotor hits the caliper. i doubt it the axle and ill soon find out. just came back from the shop with a new stainless steel rotor looks sweet and its alot thicker. any tips for putting it on?

what the fuck are they loading it with a damn fork lift anyway... being a shop the should know better... you just don't pick anything with a forklift... if it were on a pallet or something thats different.. but not on an unprotected quad... i would be all over their ass as soon as i saw the forklift coming over to pick it.. thats retarted
