Special Spokes for Talon Hubs??????

hi guys, im wondering if i need a special kind of spoke kit for my talon hubs. would an OEM style spoke work. im wondering because i need a new rim and spokes. (did some hardcore jumping and broke my excel rim and a few spokes):smirk: so im going to buy a new rear rim and spokes and a new rear tire. i have a 97 yz250 buy i have a buddy with a 03 yz450f and his rim is interchangeable with mine. so i was wondering if this would work...http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/YZ250F-YZ450F-19-INCH-REAR-RIM-SPOKES-_W0QQcmdZViewItemQQhashZitem4aab7ce018QQitemZ320704667672QQptZMotorcyclesQ5fPartsQ5fAccessories

im not sure what kind of talon hubs i have but my rear hub looks like this

any tips would be appreciated.

I got a set of front spokes for a CR250. Turns out they're for Talon hubs, (which I don't have), but they came with this sheet of paper. Hopefully, it's helpful to you or anyone else looking for info on "Talon" spokes. Yes they are different from "OEM" spokes (at least for the CR) The "Talon" spokes are 20mm shorter than spokes for the stock hub. (220mm vs. 240mm)

Yup, Talon uses a different lacing pattern than most stock wheels, so stock spokes won't work since different length spokes are needed.

can i still use any 19" rim though? or do i need a special one for lacing stuff...

I have Talon hubs and we called them to get the spokes.
