Hi all,

I have an '02 XR200 and I just bought a 1985 CR125 front-end so I can have a disc brake. The spokes & nipples are shot to shit, I'm hoping to find a cheap kit somewhere. I'm looking at ebay but I only see stuff for $100 and over. Any idea where I could get a good price for this? Thanks!

You don't want to get too cheap with your spokes!

This. The last place to cheap out, shattered wheel at any speed is a pain in the ass. At the very least you are stuck with a bike you can't even push.

Check out Buchanan's Spoke & Rim they fixed me up with spokes front and rear for my 86 Cr125. Quality stuff. Don't skimp on these!

I was just told Buchanan will make you a spoke set. They are quality but expensive. Also, Excel/RK makes the Notako spokes which are their lower end (cheaper) carbon kits, compared to the stainless steel Takasago spoke kits.

Tusk and Moose make kits too.

Get to Googling! Lol.
