I've been a complete muppet!!

Ok..so I've ever so slightly bent (their not straight) a couple of spokes on the CT. Do they need replaced? Can they be replaced. Again..slightly bent.

I would have thought you need to get them replaced, I also thought the idea of the spokes being fit the way they are it would be possible to replace them without taking the tyre off, but please don't quote me on that  :084:

My view is they need to be replaced

yeah..went down to dealer and they are going to replace. Looks like they just deflate tyre, unscrew each spoke and replace. They reckon that the bike should be safe enough to ride on. Spokes are £5 each, but I'll have to wait for 3 weeks as they are busy... :110: Oh well my fault!
