87 and 89 are the same. Don't complicate it, just order.
Wanted - 1 Rear spoke(short one). Yep, 1 spoke. I have the front spoke and the long rear spoke. I had to cut the short spokes off(rusty) and threw them away(dumb!). I thought that I could just call up Buchanan's and order a set of SS front and rear spokes for a '87 TW200. WRONG! They have only made a rear set for a '89. If I find a short rear spoke, I will send them the set and they can copy. They said to send the rims and they would do it all but I have re-painted the rims and do not want to have to re-paint around spokes. Also, twice the money. And I want to try to lace myself to see if I can? So if anyone wants to sell one of their rear spokes, just let me know. You will still have 31 left! That ought'a be enough to hold it.
I have a partial set from a 2001, assuming they are still the same. I'll look around in my garage tonight.

I told the girl at Buchanan's to send me a set of rear '89's and that I would mail the front spoke to copy but she said that it would be best to send the rims? Told her that I would let her know when I was ready to ship.
She did tell me that the '89 has 6" & 3 5/8" rear spokes.
