Style and Strength

Excel produces a world class rim, the spokes are nothing short of perfection. You want strength added with a little style, check out the SPLINE nipples!! The spokes will stay tight, no loosening what so ever.

Highly recommend the Excel adjustable torque wrench, torque all the spokes to 42-46 inch pounds (per the excel tech department) and you rims will stay true!!!

Nice Wheel Upgrade

These spokes & nipples are top notch! They look trick & are much stronger than stock, my only complaint was on my paticular bike I had to drill out the front wheel in order to get the spline drive nipples to fit. But once they were in it was totally worth it.

Poor product

Does not fit stock KTM hub or excel rim, too long. Also the spokes are a lot thinner than stock. Don't waste your time or money. Luckily they took them back and said they were the wrong ones.

They fit good

I like the spline drive. The little spline wrench that comes with them works better than the other spokes that use a regular wrench. They dont round off as easy as regular spokes when tightening and truing the rim.

Great Quality

Excel make great products. Note these will appear too long unless you install them correclty. Installed these spokes and Excel Rims on stock Honda Hubs. The instalation process is very specific: First lace the OUTSIDE holes on the brakes side of the hub, then rotate the hub but not the rim to take up the slack, then lace up the inside holes on the same side. Then turn the whole assembly over and again install the spokes in the OUTSIDE holes on the hub, then complete with the inside holes. You should now have a 3 cross pattern, not the stock 2 cross. This is only on the front, not on the rear. Call Excel if you get stuck, they will help!


really good spokes easy to put on and never moved

Felton, DE

the spokes pull out from the nipples. on the first ride back on the bike i tried jumping a 90 ft table top and landed short. then ten (10) of the spokes pulled out from the nipples and the day of riding was over. DO NOT BUY THIS SET. STICK WITH THE STOCK SET!!

Stripped nipples

These spline drive nipples are fine thread and they pull out from the spoke. This is not uncommon. stick with standard nipples

This set of spokes and nipples are super nice. Everything you have to come to expect from excel.

Nipples break

The spokes are good but the nipples randomly break. They don't seem to be near as good as the stock ones. After I had a problem with them I asked around and found that lots of people have the same problem with the nipples I do. The spokes are really strong though.

A: The Yamaha WR125R is not available here in the US and I don't have the spec's for that bike. I would recommend contacting your local Yamaha dealer for conformation.

Q: Are these compatible with DID dirtStar rims!?

A: The DID Dirt Star Wheels are specifically designed to use stock spokes. For your 2009 CRF450r the Excel front spokes will not work. The rears would but then you would have two different styles of nipples. Stock Honda spokes are some of the best out there so don't feel bad running them. Plenty of teams run stock Honda spokes versus the aftermarket companies.

is that a problem excel has with there nipples? whats the chance it will happen to me if I buy them and put them in? the reviews some say the nipples pulled out of the spokes?
MotoSport Staff

A: This spoke and nipple kit is one of the highest quality kits in the industry. I have used Excel spoke kits exclusively for the last 15 years and have never had an issue. These are aluminum nipples on a steel spoke, they can stripped fairly easily if overtightened. Also after installing spokes, after the first 10-15 minutes of riding, the spokes need to be re-checked as they can settle in the wheel and may loosen up some. This should be done with any spoke set regardless of brand. If installed properly and tightened to the correct specification, you should have no problems.
