Excel stands for eccellents!

If you want the best buy the the best. We have used these spokes on all our bikes. They are strong and with the spline drive nipples give a positive adjustment every time!

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!

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.

Is the nipple the same size as the rearspline drive nipple or do I need a different head for my torque wrench?

The front and rear will be the same so you will not need a different size.

Are these compatible with DID dirtStar rims!?

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.

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.

Will excel spokes fit a pro wheel front rim?

Unfortunately some will and some wont. Typically it is a good idea to match Pro Wheel spokes with a Pro Wheel rim and the same goes for Excel. That way you know everything will work no problem.
