For anyone following this, here's a quick update:

The rim worked out just fine. The only catch was that the TTR uses small spokes and nipples; .250"on the TTR, and the rim is drilled for .320". I was going to try to find just replacement nipples, but no one seems to have m3.5-.7 nipples, but m4-.7 looks to be fairly common though (I have a Ziploc bag full, but no spokes to put them on...).

I contacted Buchanan Spoke and Wheel, and '86-'91 YZ spokes are the same, and they have them with the correct size nipples.

I have a set on order, and will get the rim laced up as soon as they come in.

Just a note for anyone looking to lace their own wheels:

Take pictures.

Reference spoke direction.

Mark an index point on the hub and rim. This will help immensely.
