Buying rims

Hey I just purchaced a 08 yz250f with a bent rim:. Im going to buy a new rim but was wondering if buying new spokes was absolutely neccesary. I would really rather not, but if it is a must that's fine

Not necessarily necessary. Unless some spokes are bent or broken.

If you can get all the nips loose, no problem.

Usually, a few of them won't budge though and have to get cut off. Your bike's pretty new, so you may have no problem at all.

Be sure to use Anti-seize or grease on the spoke threads when you re-assemble the wheel.
