Spoke accents

Postby metalman51 » Fri Mar 02, 2012 9:05 pm



Hello everyone, it's been awhile since I've been on. After my back surgery in July , I wasn't able to do much , but I was able to get some fall riding in. Anyway, I came across some rear wheel spoke accents for my GL1500, however I didn't have the cash to purchase them and I didn't save the site. Would anyone know where I could find these? Can't wait for spring here in the N.E.

that is correct, I was surprised myself. They were held in place by double sided tape.

Well......I"ve had these spoke accents on the front wheel of my 1500 for about three years. They accentuate the "ring of fire".

Wouldn"t bother putting them on the rear for a couple of reasons: 1. You can only see a very small part of the wheel rim. 2. They would quickly get filthy with brake dust and 3. you can"t put a ring of fire on the rear wheel (not on the 1500 anyway). Bloody expensive for what they are.

My advice??? Get some "safety chrome" instead OR take yer wife out for a meal and buy her flowers and chocolates :mrgreen: :lol:
