While I was riding the other day I noticed that a spoke nipple had back off and the spoke rapped around my from axle (not a pretty site). I am now in search of a 1 front spoke but my local shop tells me that Yamaha only sells them in sets???? Any idea where I can find a front spoke for my 01 wr426?

That is not true. You can purchase single spokes from the dealer. That dealer may not want to sell singles.
