Hi Woody, I've been meaning to call you and ask you something. I have 25,000 mile on my F650GS, good amount of dirt and dirt road riding, and the wheels seem to be not as crisp. Especially the rear wheel. The spokes seem to be ok, none loose, but there is a looseness/sloppiness feel to the bike now and I'm wondering if the the spokes need to be tightened up? I realize there could be something else wearing out (swing arm bushing maybe), I know my steering head bearings are fine. Do spokes/wheels need to be tightened up periodically?
