On my 04 CRF 450 R after doing the Malcom Smith run I had all of my rear spokes replaced with larger ones. No problems after that.

But you didnt have cracked hubs.   :cry:

I think I brain farted and mailed the check to Lucerne Valley...not Yucca Valley  :doh:.  Knowing the efficiency of the USPS, itll be a couple of weeks until they return it to me. If you dont receive it in a few days, drop me a note, and Ill send another check.

Nope got luckily I guess?... The 04's were notorious for the spokes backing off even after retorque them all including the fronts.

I'll be looking forward to getting a new KTM 500 EXC F soon! Everything in my garage is old like me!
