    Quite a few Hardware shops stock them but are sometimes hard to see or find in all the Gear so You may have to ask? Other Option, Buy the long ones and cut them in Half?

    Thanks Ian, I did think of cutting 1 in half. But it is nice to have both ends, 2 hooks and 2 straight.
    I was hopeing for a set of motion pro spoons, but I may have to mail order them.
    Cheers,Al

    I brought one at Global Hardware. It was about 10 inches long, but I still cut it in half.
    The standard tyres on the KLX come off and on so easy, that you don’t need them any longer.

    I ended up buying some at Nana screw. 70 baht each,pretty heavy duty.I also bought a small file to clean them up as the edges were sharp enough to cut a tube,lol.
    Happy trails, Al
