I just got my first dirt bike (been street riding a long time, but new to dirt) which is a 03 KLX400 (same as DRZ400E not S). Got it from a dealer, and is supposed to be very low hours 1 owner. Just noticed after I got it home a spoke is missing off the rear wheel. I thought, no big deal, I'll just get another one, they can't cost too much. I stopped at a dealership and was very unpleasantly surprised to hear they only sell them as a whole kit for like $80. I don't know cause I'm new to dirt, but I would think this would be a common problem -- just missing 1 or 2 spokes -- what do most people do? Someone suggested I try posting on here to see if anyone has a spare. Does anyone have an extra spoke or 2 they would sell me? Or does anyone know of an aftermarket supplier that will sell them individually? If I can't find one and have to buy a whole kit, does anyone want to buy some spokes from me? Also, I have heard that it helps keep your spokes tight and prevent loosing them if you put zip ties around them -- cool, but how do you do that? I mean, where exactly do you put the zip ties on? Could anyone send me a picture or give me a link to a picture of a wheel with zip tied spokes? Thanks!
