Another tire wob question ! With video

Hey guys I bought this Honda trx 400ex 2005 last week and last night my friend riding behind me
Noticed the back left tire and front left tire wobbling ,

This morning I switched the tires around to check if the tires/rims are the problem , which they aren’t

So below I have a video of the front wheel spinning , have a look and let me know , thanks

The most common problem is bent wheels - happens a lot it rollover crashes

You say you switched the tires around, but how did you switch front to rear or left to right?

If the right front wheel is fine and you swap left front to right front and vice versa and the left spins true and the right now wobbles, then the wheel is bent - if the problem stays on the left, then the wheel hub is bent.

On the rear, swap from side to side is not as finite - if the swap results in the wobble staying on the left side, you then need to swap wheel and hub assemblies - if the problem moves, then the rear hub is bent, if it still wobbles after the hubs are swapped, then the axle may be bent - happens a lot when jumping if its landed on one wheel.

If it's not sever, ignore it - it's an off road vehicle and will not affect it's function or reliability.

Hey thanks for the reply ! What I meant was I changed the front left tire (where the wobble is) with the front right (which is fine) and the problem remained on the left side , so the tires/rims don’t seem to be the problem !

I checked the bearing and it looks fine
I will eventually changed the Hub! It looks real wobbly in the video but when riding I don’t feel a thing !

Oh and Another thing lol when tightening one of the lug nuts the damn bolt snapped off with the nut and I wasn’t putting any pressure !

I noticed my atv came with spacers , which are stuck to the dam hub and I can’t seem to get off ! Hopefully I get them off and I will have enough thread to screw the snapped bolt but back on !

Any advice ?

Yeah - spacers are notorious for causing bent hubs

Good luck
