Re: Shimano Part Number Y4G308000 (Shimano Hub Nut 4.3mm).

 This item is no longer available. We suggest you use our item code 0748 (Hub Nut WH-M985) in its place. It's 1.7mm longer, but has the same (14 gauge) thread.

Tech Note 11 - Shimano Spokes

Formerly 1084

Re: Shimano Part Number Y4BN98150 (Bladed straight pull silver spoke with small diameter rim plug, 274mm to suit WH-7801-SL, drive side).

This spoke has been discontinued by Shimano.Our suggestion is to buy a 274mm round straight pull spoke (such as DT Champion) and reuse your existing rim plug by cutting your original spoke between the flanged end and its bladed section in order to remove the rim plug. The plug will slip over a round replacement spoke (it won't slide over a bladed one).

(Formerly 58856)

Re: Shimano Part Number Y012A6025 (Narrow bladed straight pull black spoke 302mm to suit WH-RS10 rear wheel, left or right side)

This spoke has been discontinued by Shimano. Our suggestion is to use our item code 58857, which is the silver version of the same spoke.
