Dirt Bike Spoke Help Needed!

Yo,

So, I just found out today that I've got a busted spoke on my 2007 Yamaha YZ450F.

I figured no big deal, I'll just run down and get a new one--or maybe a set.

Well, no. I guess not.

DNA wheels use fatter-than-OEM spokes.


Does anyone know where I could find spokes?

Lynnwood Motoplex told me they don't have the Excel spokes that might be fat enough without special order, Adventure Motosports here in Monroe had nothing, Ride in Woodinville can suck a left fucking nut (no, they don't have it either). Smokey Point is doing research.


Who else can I call? I'm running out of time that I can react!

Does anyone have any spokes for a ~2000+ YZ/WR with aftermarket wheels? Anything? Anyone?

Local shops have sucky service if you need anything special.
A 30 second google search came up with this..

I'd call them and ask if they sell replacement spokes.

Custom spokes for any application. I'm sure if I took a length and diameter measurement they could set you up with just a couple replacements.

Likely, if you have one broken spoke your wheels needs some attention...i.e. check spoke tension and wheel true. I see a LOT of dirtbikes with loose spokes, which puts extra stress on the snug ones (breaking them).
