Hello everybody,
My spokes on my 03 yz450f are frozen, will not budge. I have found a set of Warp 9 spokes and the guy says they will fit my stock rim and hub (Excel), but I cannot find any info supporting that.
Does anyone know if they will work? I hate to spend the money and find I should have spend the extra to get the Excel spokes.

Thanks

Larry

Moose is better? If that is the case, I found these:

They are even cheaper than the Warp 9 spokes on E-Bay.

I have noticed that the Moose spokes are chrome plated, which means rust. As where the Warp 9 spokes are stainless.

I don't thiink I am interested in chrome plated anything on the bike.

Chrome plated means they can flake, which means rust when they get chipped when rocks comes in contact with them......
