    Spoke wrench recommendation please

    Trying to take apart my stock rim with one of those 6-in-1 wrenches. Let's just say it isn't going so well. The 6-in-1 can't get into the tight spots. Need a wrench I can use to remove stock spoke and then install HD Pro Wheel spokes. Was looking at the BBR wrench as the description says it is designed for stock spokes on one end and their HD spokes on the other end. Wasn't sure if BBR HD are the same size as Pro Wheel HD spokes.

    What would you guys recommend?

    you can buy an OEM Honda spoke wrench that was made specifically for the CRF50 right from the dealer
    here is the Honda part number
    89212-KSJ-A20
    it will cost you about $5

    I have a BBR spoke wrench here, I can measure both ends and post up the numbers here, if that's a help.

    The BBR spoke wrench is 4mm at one end and 5.5mm at the other end, clearly marked right on the wrench.

    Thanks dirtbkr. Wasn't sure if they offered more then one wrench. If they Pro Wheel spokes are the same size I could probably get by with the Honda wrench darkside recommeded

    I would have to think that the HD Pro Wheel spokes are probably bigger than 4mm, the BBR wrench is only $8.00 from BBR.

    Part Number
    Application Price
    391-BBR-1001 Spoke Wrench - Stock XR/CRF50 & BBR HD Spokes 7.95
