Default F4i Front Rim Question

Recently got a 2002 f4i with a 929 front end. The bike needs to be cleaned up and I decided I should try to start it myself.
The front tire is leaking and the previous owner sealed it up. Iím almost sure itís due to a bent front rim, but not certain. I assume it needs to be replaced, as if being unsafe to fix a bent front wheel? Since the front end is a 929 I am unsure if it is the stock 02 f4i rim or the 929 rim. Attaching an image of the junk.

Thanks in advance guys. Iím new to working on bikes and appreciate the help. Next step is replacing the horrible stunt tank.

I'd assume its a 929 front rim, and you can have it straitened without worry to its safety. Its done all the time.

Iíve been told otherwise about straightening a bent rim. Where can I have this done? Is it safe?

Thanks again!

A frame/wheel shop will straiten. Literally NOBODY would sell this service if it was dangerous. That a lifes worth of liability riding around to take everything you have away when that person dies or gets hurt and they or their family sue. Even oem manufacturer dealerships will send rims out for straitening.
