I didnt pay close attention when I purchased the spoke kit: I thought i was getting a normal set of spokes applicable to my needs. When I built my wheel I was really pleased with the improvements over regular spokes. They were easy to lace and durable when flexing into the rim holes. The splined nipples and corresponding wrench are the best idea since the wheel was invented! Buy these.
These are good, solid spokes. Much better than stock. They are more sturdy, and the nipples with the supplied wrench are easier to tighten and adjust than traditional style.
Would definitely purchase Excel again.
This was a great fit to my stock rim and hub. No need to grind or drill anything. Spokes feel a little thicker than stock but fit firmly together seated in the rim and hub. Finish look is great. No regrets on choosing Excel for replacement spokes.
I bought this spoke kit for my 06 rm250 when converting the rear wheel from a 19 to 18 in rim. After a year and a half of hard riding, they are still straight and the rim is as true as it was when i first trued it. Never had the problem with the nipples stripping. I am very happy with this kit.
You would need 19" spokes for the rear wheel on your 1995 RM250. For the front wheel on your bike you would need 21" spokes. These 18" spokes would be too short. Excel spokes are only sold in spoke kits and will only fit Excel wheels. The Pro Wheel 21" & 19" Spoke kits would work for your stock wheelw and hubs or there are spoke kits available under the OEM parts for your bike (http://www.motosport.com/dirtbike/oem-parts/SUZUKI/1995/RM250). Unfortunately, we do not have any individual spokes available for your 1995 Suzuki RM250.
According to Excel's fitment chart you can use the OEM KTM spokes with Excel Wheels. The stock KTM spokes are the same size as excel spokes and from what I know KTM's come stock with Excel Wheels so you should not have any issues using this spoke kit with your OEM wheels. Please note that the nipples are different for the spokes in the Excel spoke kit and will equired the Excel Spoke Wrench to adjust the spokes.
