Im missing a spoke on my front tire of my yz. I just noticed last week. I "know" that I will need to fix it soon. Would it be a bad idea to go riding this weekend with that front spoke missing? Anybody else out there tempt fate?

Quite a few times, both my brother and myself. Never had a catastrophic problem, just started busting a few more in the area on one bike. The RM250 I bought earlier this year had 1 missing spoke and the rim was bent so badly that I could see the tire bead and was cracked as well. Rode on it for a couple of weeks until my new rims came in. I was just buzzing around my brother's farm, not grabbing 30' of air at an MX track.

Good to know....went riding tonight. I kept an eye on the front wheel tonight while riding. Hit some jumps on our track and did some hill climbing. I'll have to get a spoke some time this week. Im going to check with a buddy and see if he has any that might fit on my yz.
