Header allen bolt size

Recommended Posts

I need to get a swivel allen socket today at lunch and don't recall the size. It's the one that secures the header to the cylinder. I think it's a 5 or 6. Anyone know? :)

That one's a 6mm on my '01. I don't think a swivel will work though. I have a 3/8 drive 6mm allen that won't clear the frame. That application needs a long reach allen bit, say 4" or so.

I also have the socket that won't clear the frame but I was thinking a swivel would. However, a long reach allen will definitely work. Where did you get yours? Does Sear's or similar carry these?

I replaced the allen bolt with a standard head bolt and used a regular ole extension with a 10mm socket. Worked perfect.
