    Gutted, new wheel i think

    Absolutely gutted. Took bike to BMW dealer for recall on daft bracket.
    All done and thought id take the scenic route home. Lower Deeside road in Aberdeen shire. Nipping on a bit and what i thought was a puddle. Turned out to be 20 metres of pot holes. Anyways, managed to avoid the first couple but hit one. Did not think to much of at the time as managed to stay on bike. 60 odd miles home and never thought to look.
    However on inspection once home, found this damage to wheel.
    So 2 questions, is this repairable and do i continue to keep riding.

    Second question probably easy enough as using only survival skills tells me not to ride incase of tyre coming of bead and then a bad outcome.
    Just off phone to BMW Dealer and new wheel is £750.
    Anybody know where i can purchase a wheel from other than dealer??

    Mate, Im sorry to say, that is a definite -do not ride it- situation.
    However, there could be a possibility its repairable. You can take it to a repair specialist, he will jig it back into place. I have then seen them tested to check if they still spin true, or if not; if its within milimetre tolerences.
    Unfortunately, in my case it wasnt. As following a test ride after repair, whilst depressing the brake lever slightly, i could feel a very slight vibration in the brake lever coming up from the rim.
    It was a few years ago and it cost me 100 quid to try. But as you rightly say a rim costs 750. So (for me) it was worth the try.

    On a side note, if worst case scenario, alot of people replace rims with carbon ones etc... Especially if the S1000RR rims fit our bikes; and you might find on forums/ebay a 2nd hand one in excellent condition for 450/500 pounds.
    If youre willing to wait that is.

    Sorry I couldnt give you better news.

    Yes it’s possible to get it repair to a very good tolerance....if you watched how they did it...brute force in other words a B FO mallet and no end of talent, but you are going be brave(very) hooning around on your X/R after that.

    I can confirm (have a 14 R and 16 XR in the stable) that the wheels are NOT transferable between the 2 bikes (for my model years anyway). Have no idea re the new models.

    You need a new wheel. Try eBay or Motorworks who do used stuff.

    have a read of this https://www.moneysavingexpert.com/reclaim/pothole-claims/

    my local authority has paid out tens of thousands of pounds in "pothole compensation" in the last few years as someone did a FOI request as something to beat the incumbent councillors with for the forthcoming election

    I would be back out to the potholes photographing them, measuring them and photographing depth etc. I would then put a claim in to the local authorities as they have a duty to maintain the roads. If those potholes have been reported before and the council have done nothing about them you have a sure fire case. If the council can argue that this is the first they knew of this road damage they will try to fight it but its definitely worth trying.

    I had one fixed similar to that by Motoliner in Kent. Give them a call.

    It's worth trying to claim from the council. I have made two successful claims.
    1) Against Hertfordshire for a new front wheel due to a pot hole.  The council claimed the pothole wasn't there when they last inspected the road.  I asked at several houses nearby and they said it had been there for over year.  The council capitulated and paid out.

    2) Against Central Bedfordshire.  The road had subsided by about 3 inches where fibre optic cable had been installed, it was on a bend and I came off the bike.  The council claimed it had only just happened (notice a pattern forming here!).  I used Google Streetview images going back 3 years to show it had been getting worse.  The council paid out for the repairs and personal injury.

    A key phrase to use in correspondence with a council is "I am a vulnerable road user"

    Here are some articles by Andrew Dalton on potholes.

    Andrew gave me some good advice for my personal injury claim.

    Cheers guys for the response so far.
    IN contact with Local engineering firm and they are going to have a look. But on first pass have said will be a long shot.
    Trying to find forms and contact council re claim against them. Usual excuse re winter, frost, COVID and not being able to get out and complete repairs etc etc.
    Will let you know how that goes.
    Will have a quick look online to see if any spares etc. Oh well that's the money gone for the new Panniers then. But better to be safe than sorry. God, must be getting old
