Factory spokes. Are they stainless or coated carbon steel?

Recommended Posts

I cant seem to get a straight answer from the research. Its more of a trivial matter, but Im hoping the brain trust here has a reference or two about factory dirt bike spoke material.

Since a magnet seems to stick to the ones I remember sticking a magnet to...my general thought is that they are either galvanized or zinc/nickel coated carbon steel.

Im up for a little learning, though.

Depends entirely on the make and model.  Most of them are plated steel.

Im thinking the "most" are the Big 4 (fine...5) manufacturers and their main 250/450 models in the last couple decades.

Can you think of any outliers? Thinking KTM might do/did stainless, but I honestly have never paid attention.
