bent spokes and wheel out of true. Have some ?'s

I just bought an 06 kx250f. Almost all the rear spokes were loose. There are a few bent spokes too. I went through and tightened down all the spokes. I can't get them tight enough. When I tap them some still sound dull. The few that are bent wont even turn. When I spin th wheel it has a slight dip. Can anyone reccomend a
ny good shops that can replace a few spokes and true the wheel? Around how much should i look at paying? Better yet, is anyone her good at doing this that wants to make some $? Thanks in advance.

How many are loose and how bad is it? Might be cheaper to take the tire/tube off yourself, get some bolt cutters and buy all new spokes. Then have Motorcycles Unlimited just lace it up from scratch. A shop will have to do the same and charge u for that when its really easy to do yourself. Or u can even true it yourself. If the spokes keep spinning and wont tighten down they need to be replaced.

lots of em






this^^^^^ dont let the relacing intimidate you, just take a photo, clip em out and buy a new set, they are cheap, what costs is the re-lacing and truing.
You CAN do it yourself as its very easy, watch a video or two and have at it.

Ive found 2 so far that just keep spinning. The has a very slight wobble to the right. Maybe an 1/8 of an inch or so. I was lookimg at it this morning an the tire on the right side doesnt look like its sitting in thr bead. About an 8"long spot. Im gonna try pumpimg it up with air to see if it seats. That way I can get a better idea of how out of true the wheel is. Is it a bad idea to ride on an mx track with two loose spokes??
