I got the wheels from a buddy last June but had to install the abs bearings crush tubes etc! Called DNA and they sent me the parts i needed and also told me how they should be installed even wrote on each part some kinda guide for installation! Took them to an indy shop and had them installed! Abs light comes on after I ride it for a few miles! Checked code and its pointing to rear wheel abs sensor is intermittent! After an attempt or two with DNA and the Indy I really didn't get it resolved! So I kept rolling on with ABS light still on! Well a couple weeks ago I get a grinding noise I the front wheel! I took wheel off and the abs bearing is shot and wasn't even close to crush tube! The dealership replaced bearings so good to go! I had in my mind my Indy did not follow directions on the initial install and therefore didn't install bearing correctly! (Maybe maybe not) soooooooo I also had to let dealer retune my pipes so I figured I needed a rear tire anyway and at the same time they could check my rear abs sensor and bearings etc! He stated he strapped bike down on dyno and got a wobbling from the rear end! After taking tire off and checking everything this is what the result is! Broke bolts in the hub abs bearing bad and also had to replace rear wheel sensor! His advice to me was to stay away from aftermarket rear wheels especially if your particularly hard on the throttle! He stated that out of 100 aftermarket wheels 10 end up like this! (Not a scientific fact)! So I'm am passing the advice on to fellow riders! Wheels are DNA Storm 21x18!
