New spoke stretch?

Recommended Posts

I just did my rear wheel on a crf450 new ss spokes and nipples. I rode it for a couple hours and now they are all loose. I'm assuming this is normal for new spokes? How much more will they stretch??

Typically not 'spoke stretch' so much as the spoke heads and nipples seating into their pockets. At least one or two re tensions is common.
