Non genuine spoke kits?

G'day all, can anyone recommend or direct me (link etc) to aftermarket spoke kits for a 2007 Adventure? I don't want to go OEM as the chrome finish on them is junk.... Interested in zinc / galvanised mild steel or even stainless steel.

Cheers Rich

Woodys,

I have dealt with them on several occasions. They will listen to what you want and how you want to use it (application) and give you the best product for your application.

I lived down the street from Bucannons and even when I walked in there, they were not able to answer any of my questions.

I spent the money at Woodys.

Just to let you know Woody's have stainless steel spoke kits (for standard Adventure rims) at $128 per rim plus postage.

Buchanan Spokes have yet to reply to my 2 week old email inquiry....

Cheers Rich
