Broken nipple

On my last ride I somehow managed to break a spoke nipple on the rear wheel of the old "hemi", anybody know where I can buy one? Is it something the dealer might have laying around from repairing other wheels?

I broke 3 of them on my front wheel when I tangled with another bike during a moto. I went to the local Honda shop (Yamaha shop was too far away) and matched up some nipples that they had in a box of mixed spokes. They were not aluminum, but they worked.

Unfortunately you cannot order just one, but maybe someone here in TT will sell you one. So, take your spoke to any bike dealer (hopefully Yamaha) and try to match up a nipple. Anyway, one spoke won't keep you from riding, just check your spokes more often till you find the nipple you need.
