Can one of my fellow YZ'ers hook me up with a rear wheel spoke? I broke one last weekend and they want $60 for a whole set at the dealer parts counter. I only need one and it's off the rear inside, 4mm thick and about 20cm long. It goes on the 19in. rear of my '01 YZ426. If you're a wheel-builder and you've got one laying around I'd be happy pay you for the spoke plus shipping. Thanks ~Mark

Don't you just hate that, Chapparal Yamaha tried that crap with me, but I found another dealer more than willing to sell me some spokes. I unfortunately was attending a race at Glenn Helen and got my front wheel in some Hondas foot peg, lost three spokes. It was a two day event and I tried to fix the bike for the second event but those idiots wouldn't budge. The next dealership a town or two over helped me out. They broke into a complete 60 dollar kit sold me the ones I needed. They didn't know what to charge me, so I gave them 20 bucks and took six, just incase I had to pass that Honda the next day. Shop around, some dealers are actually helpful and really don't want to rape and pillage everyone

East Coast wheels sell individual spokes. I bough one for like 3 bucks from them. Just tell them to put it in an envelope and you probably wont be charged much for shipping. (i was charged 47 cents)

Honda sells them seperately. The CRF spoke is the same as the YZF.
