Lightbulb ProAligner

From Cyril huze blog


Quote:

Misaligned wheels can cause skewed braking, oversteer or understeer, drifting or pulling in one direction, and steering head shake. There are many wheels/tires alignment methods, from cords to straight edges to lasers and everything between. This one promises to be faster and more accurate.

ProAligner was created by a former Moto GP racer, tested by his fellow racers. It is as simple to use by a motorcycle owner as it is by a professional shop owner. ProAligner comes in a protective sleeve to keep it clean and safe in your tool box with detailed instructions printed on the back of the storage sleeve, so they never get lost. Only $29.95 + shipping. For an explanation of how it works go to ProAligner (you can download the instructions before you buy)


Not a bad idea. I don't need it with my self adjusting ultra rear axle but it might be good for the sporty and other bikes thru my garage.


What do you guys think?

Not a bad idea... I usually measure from swing-arm pivot to axle bolt center but I've often wondered about accuracy.

It's a ruler...

I can get one for a dollar, not thirty dollars.

If I read the instructions right, the tool is used by visually lining up the front and rear wheels. Seems like some room for error using this eyeball method. Did I miss something?

Since ya'll are more ejakated than me. Will this work on my bike?










I'm just so confused. I mean. It should help me. I feel as if my rear is tilted cause there is so much you have to move and bolt down to get the wheel straight.
