i was planning on coming out tonight to the dual euro.  changed my tire last night and noticed 2 spokes were broke.  almost opposite of one another.  i can't get replacements until mon - tues.  do you think it's ok to race with 2 missing spokes?  it must have happend at racers mc, i chk them before every race.

ive done play rides on 4 broken spokes and a bent rim, i would think its  fine. this is where the extra wheel set comes in handy. i just wish they were not 500 to 600 bucks a set. but i do think u will be ok! ;D

I agree, just make sure the broken ones are removed or tied off securely. Check ebay or Craigslist for spare wheels, I picked a front up for Matt's CR250 for $75.00 including rotor, axle and spacers, it's not perfect but then again how many desert racers have perfect wheels?

Hutch:
Is it the front or rear? I can bring Matt's spare front for you if you want but we won't be out until Sunday morning.
