(New) Steering wobble :-( :-( :-(

Today I pulled the front end apart and checked everything out (tightened up the steering stem bearings while I was at it too) and put her all back together. Went out for a test ride and Damn, vibration's still there. I put her up on the stand and slapped the dial indicator against the wheel and here's what i found:
This is starting at say 0 degrees(and 0" of runout):


turn the wheel just about 180 degrees and look what we have here:


Holy Warped Wheels Batman! .090" runout. Damn it, I knew I should have waited to get the recall done. And on the 1st ride of the year too, Pisser.
I'm surprised the vibration isn't worse. The service limit for Axial runout is .020" I haven't checked the radial yet, not reeally much need to now I guess. Anybody got a spare front wheel they want to sell?

Kip: Napoleon, don't be jealous that I've been chatting online with babes all day. Besides, we both know that I'm training to be a cage fighter.
Pedro: Yes. I don't understand... they say you're not allowed to have pinatas that look like real people, but in Mexico, we do it all the time.
Pedro: Vote for me, and all your wildest dreams will come true.

Take it back and say you noticed a wobble, omit the pot hole from the story.
