I just put a zip tie around the swingarm or on a fork leg, and trim it close to the rim to use as a feeler. Works fine on a bicycle or a motorcycle.

If you're lacing and worrying about dish, it's not the best method but for touching up a wheel that's out of true it works fine.

You can even adjust for dish while mounted, it's just trickier.

harbour freight sells one forarond $30-$40. The axel is too long in the kit but after trimming off 1/2" it works perfect.
