I know. I had to do it twice the first time to get it right. It's mostly about patience. I have a VHS tape I bought that shows all kinds of lacing patterns that HD uses. Dirt bikes are mostly the same.

Plenty of Youtube videos on it. First you have to work on getting the hub centered with correct off set left and right. Once it rolls round (not like an egg) you can work out any lateral movement and tension them all. After a few hours you can check tension and then they shouldn't move much.

Start with a new set of spokes unless you know of someone that break up a full set. If you are putting on a new rim you will run into some you have to cut because they are seized.

I second Greg Draper, he's on the NW side of Houston so he's close to you.
