MT500 Rear Wheel Spokes

Post by Brian17n » Tue Aug 06, 2019 3:08 pm

Hi,
Unfortunately when trying to tighten some loose spokes on the rear of my MT500 I managed to break one.
I successfully freed 3 nipples with penetrating but the forth one snapped, I my have been getting over confident by this stage.
It is a short spoke on the drum side.
I have looked at all of the normal suppliers but I haven't found anything, maybe I have been looking in the wrong places.
Hopefully somebody on the forum can suggest a source of replacement spokes, I may have to buy a few extras for use in the future.
Any suggestions will be appreciated.
Many thanks
Brian

Hi Brian,

We may be able to help.

We have some stock of spokes but do not list them on the site as there are so many variations.

So if you let us know what length of spoke you need, and which side of wheel (i.e. drive side or non-drive side) I'm fairly sure we will be able to help.

I can't guarantee they will be new, but if not they will be in good used condition.

Drop us an email if this is of interest.

Try Central Wheel Components just outside Birmingham who have all the specs for the MT wheels. Just make sure you clearly specify its the rear wheel for the MT500 with drum brake and not the Mt350 with disk brake!

Hi Brian,

We've found the ones you need!

Spokes are new, nipples are used.
It's hardly worth us charging for these, so we'll give you them as a freebie to help an MT Rider out 8-)

Email us your address and we'll get them in a post.

Cheers

Thanks for the response.
Now sorted with the spokes supplied by Nick at Force Motorcycles.
It was a bit tricky getting the new spoke fitted but I managed by removing one of the longer spokes on the other side.
