Interesting discovery

Just got done pulling the wheels off my bike, in preparation of getting my anakees mounted and balanced. Made two discopveries. The first is that my front wheel/ tire was installed backward. Had to have been done by the dealer when they set the bike up. Goes right along with the loose chain, and shifter that fell off.
Second I noticed that the wheels have markings showing they are actually made by Enkei. Did some research and apparently they manufacture wheels for all of the Japanese bike manufacturers. They just don't advertise like they do their car wheels.

Anybody ever seen motorcycle wheels marketed to the public in a Enkei catalog?

No. They hardly even mention that fact on their website.
