New to a bike with spokes......help please?

#1 Unread post by Locopez » Sun Mar 18, 2007 4:06 pm

I bought a tool to snug the spokes on my DR650se....I have read the service manual. It seems like there must be more to this? just snug them a few turn to the right? Alternate betweeen spokes....???? anyone have some helpful hints?

Thanks

These instructions are for bicycle wheels, but the principal is the same.
People say I'm stupid and apathetic. I don't know what that means, and I don't care.
