Guide To Measuring A Motorcycle Wheel Offset
Step 1; Remove the tyre and inner tube, Step 2; Remove the brake shoe plate or disc rotor. Step 3; Find a good straight edge like a steel rule or good quality spirit level etc. Step 4; Lay the straight edge across the outer edge of the brake drum or disc brake face of the hub make sure to avoid the bearing housing as this can be a different height (Fig 3).
Step 5; Now measure the gap between the underside of the straight edge and the outer edge of the wheel rim, do this in at least 3 different area's around the rim to get a true average and this is your offset.
