Wanted: 2 rear spokes. Inner? Outer?

5 posts in this topic

Hi guys,

Well, i found 2 broken spokes on my rear wheel 18" 2004 WR450 :thumbsup: ... The tip that is in the hub is missing. Spoke and nipple in the rim is still there.

If any of you have any, i will pay $ for cost and shipping.

I have found an online place that sells singles, but it asks for INNER or OUTER ? I don't know what that means.

The two that are broken are laced to the sprcket side of the rear hub.

Thank you. -Dave

PM me with your address... I'll send you a couple. One of each.

They are excel with the cogged excel nipple but you should be able to just swap your nipples out... (sounds painful).

OK, PM sent.

What's an INNER spoke, and what's an OUTER spoke? is one shorter than the other? The hub on the sprocket side is biggest, so those spokes should be the shorter of the two... but does that mean inner?

I always referred to them as right and left... I replied to your PM. I'll look at them tonight and send you another PM after comparing to my wheel. .. it's been a while since I used any of them, I think I had to replace some on my 04' when I had it.

I'll make sure that you get two for the sprocket side of the hub and clear up any confusion before they are sent:thumbsup:
