Front wheel hex size ?

Recommended Posts

If you have a metric tape measure you could jus measure across the flat spots of the nut . Standard use a standard . Example . A 9/16 nut measures 9/16 across the flat spots

Yeah, it's 12, but you can undo it by using a 10 and 2 together.  Then replace it with one of the aftermarket versions that can be removed with a socket.

I was surprised that it works quite well.  I still replaced the nut with an aftermarket version because I don't want to carry a 10mm hex key around.

Hmm...  You did loosen the pinch bolts first, right?

 

Yeah, I picked up the Motosportz nut, but I believe Uptite has one, as does Zip-Ty Racing.  I picked Motosportz because it's a hex head, and they have a combination wrench that fits the rear axle and that front nut.

 

Zip-Ty product is kind of neat, in that it uses the 3/8 drive of a socket wrench, but since I don't carry a 3/8 drive handle with me on the trail, it wouldn't be practical.
