I don't think it will be a problem if there's no air leakage. My buddy ran off road and hit a curve, bent his rim and just kept on riding...even did a track day on it. A new rim from Kawasaki will run you about $600 plus paint. Perhaps, next time you go get tires ask if they can fix it for you...

If you want to go the insurance route, I'm not sure what your coverage is but usually they just come look at the bike and verify info then cut you a check. But yes, more than likely, your rates will go up. Ask BadDaddyJama what he did for his rim

thanks for the help guys. the only reson i was thinking about going to the insur.comp is that right now dont have a lot of money to put into my bike. unlike the green and blue and red zx6r the yellow is the most rear of the colors even Kawasaki asks more for my yellow than the others. next year i am going to get the wheels powered and the tank 2 and all new bodyparts from a web site that sells the parts new at about 1/2 off
