Anybody know where I can get a set of stainless spokes for my PS 1000 ? I am losing a battle with corrosion on the stock plated ones. Also, anybody know what type of spokes come with the black spoked wheels that Ducati sells?

Interesting! Seems the PS spokes are no more corrosion resistant than those on stock GT wheels.

When I replaced the original wheels on my GT with a set of new PS take-offs, I noticed that the chrome on the spokes seemed to be deeper and thicker. Guess not!

Would cleaning up and show chroming your original spokes be any kind of an option for you?

I purchased the black rims for my SC and the spokes are chromed... I got them back in January.

They are a bitch to keep clean but it is part of the job I guess.....

Got Spokes?

The front spokes have no shine. Debating replacement, but stock OEM spokes are $4.79 EACH!

Has anyone gotten spokes from anywhere else?

Black spokes probably have black chrome on them.

Anyway, check with Black Bike, they're specialists in all kinds of laced wheels. They did red rims for my bobber a few years back. Impeccable work.

I'm sure hope they're too busy making awesome wheels to make a passable website. The one they have is behind the curve for 1995
