    My spokes are making me mad!!!

    what causes the spoke nipples to seize is dirt working into the threads due to the centrifugal force of the wheel turning.you need to use the correct spoke spanner that comes with the bike (new).i am having issues with my rear wheel (crf250r) as most of the spokes were seized and using the honda spoke tool i could get most off. you will find that the whole spoke will turn before damaging the nipples.i had to use vise grips to hold the spokes on every one.dont use vise grips on the nipples as they are alloy and will crush very easy.spray crc on the spoke and it will soak down into the treads and may work.i had to cut some spokes off ,so am going to black excel and new spokes.fwiw. i have used excel rims with oem spokes since 04 (expert vet mx) and they have been great with no adjustments at all since initial bedding in. i have noticed with honda wheels with loose spokes,if left to long the nipples tend to wear into the shape of the rim holes and are hard to tention properly.
