Suzuki DRZ400sm Spokes

Recommended Posts

Hello fellow thumper talkers!!

I have a DRZ400sm.. The problem I have is that my rear spokes have started to show signs of corosion. I have cleaned them off with some metel polish but they have black spots on them...I dont want to sand them down as that ruins the,.....My bike has only done 500miles....Do you think I should make a warranty claim??????? My bike still has a 20month warranty!!

You can try and make a claim.... Replacements will darken too. Black spots are oxidation of the zinc plating. Sanding would remove the plating and then you'd have rust instead. You can clean them gently, wax although this will only forestall the inevitable. You want them to stay shiny? Replace with stainless steel ones or have yours chromed.

where can one get a set of replacement spokes? or the size of the factory ones to look it up?
