How To Tighten Spokes On A 95 Xr600r

We Found A Few Loose Spokes On The Rear Of My Xr600r And Tried To Tighten Them But They Just Spin.i Was Wondering If There Was A Way To Tighten Them With The Tire Still Mounted?

Step one use some good penetrating oil and let it sit for a few hours.

I then use a small vice grip to hold the spoke neat the nipple. Turn the nipple. Don't over do it. Spokes don't need to be too tight. If you over tighten you actually weaken the wheel assembly.
