I have several stock fronts for a 97 yz. What size spoke wrench do you use on your fronts. They might be the same.

If all else fails, Excel has a replacement nipple set for stock spokes. I believe they were 30 bucks. I was going to use them, but ended up getting a set of heavy duty spokes for slightly more.

Thanks for the help. I just got some help on a front nipple. I will check out excel for the rears.

I ended up paying only 60.00 for heavy duty bulldog spokes and nipples. I wonder if the excel nipple only deal for 30.00 is even worth it?

You cannot believe how much larger the hd stuff is. It builds a really nice wheel. No drilling hubs or rims on Yamaha's for the larger sizes.
