ok, so im in quite the predicament. i work at a local motorcycle shop so nearly nothing is out of reach just to let it be known. I recently bought a set of talon hubs for my crf 250. i bought buchanan h/d spokes and i had my stock hoops powdercoated black. the front wheel laced up fine besides the drilling necessary for the larger diameter h/d spokes. the rear wheel is a different story. my mechanic drilled out the hub and rim and began to lace up the complete wheel only to find that the hub talon makes for honda is a 36 hole hub and the oem hoop is 32 hole. excel does not make a 36 hole hoop for a honda. so i called up my local wheel lacing shop, TCR in lodi ca, and asked whats up. he told me i will need an excel rear hoop for a yamaha. so i placed the rim on order. as of now i am waiting for it to come into the shop. where the real predicament lies is within the spoke kit i need to buy. if i buy a 36 spoke kit for a yamaha it will not match up with the hub for a honda because the drive and brake side are different heights, or so i have been told. in that case i would have to buy a custom spoke kit which is alot even for me at the shop. if anyone has had this experience with talons and oem hoops please help me out a little bit. no one else at my shop owns a honda so they couldnt help. greatly appreciated, pete.
