    Jr's CRF250R developed a nasty death-wobble a few weeks back. Seems Jr wasn't keeping a sharp eye on the spokes as he'd been reminded many times. :deal

    Jr ordered new spokes. With the assistance of AKMud, it's all laced up.

    Anyone know of a reputable shop to get those spokes nice and tight? We were thinking of hitting a local bike shop but....?

    Thanks,
    Jim

    I've had to send mine Outside to Woody's Wheels in Denver a couple of times. They were recommended by TMS and do great work. I'm not aware of anyone fixing spoked wheels in the local area, but then again mine were for a 121GS.

    While changing tires on my 02 GSA I discovered Woodys stickers. Supposed to be great outfit. Unfortunately we're talking about a 16yo kid's dirtbike. Time is of the essence! :D We'll have to go to a local source. Thanks to JK&K, we may have found the answer.

    Gracias!

    I can do it for you if you bring it out to Willow.
