DRZ axle nut size

What size wrench do I need for the front and rear axle nut on the drz400? Trying to take the rims off but dont have the right size. Im making a trip to buy it but I want to be sure. Thanks!

I'm pretty sure its a 22mm, and it should be in ur OEM toolkit!

I dont have that kit, I bought the bike used and I didnt get it. Thanks.

ahhh i see. Well if memory serves it is a 22mm. could be a 24mm as that is in the kit too. but im pretty sure its the 22mm:thumbsup:

Get out ya calipers :lol:

24 mm

Mine are 24mm. Can use a 1 inch socket as well but its a little sloppy.

24mm front and rear.

Thanks everybody, just got an adjustable wrench and got them off, installed Seal Savers and tomorrow Im getting Kenda 270's. Thanks!:lol:

If you don't have a 24mm, a 15/16" fits perfectly. I went to the local second hand store and picked up a nice long 15/16" box end wrench for $1.

      Anyone’s air box smell like gas ? Is this normal ? Air filter is bone dry but it reeks in there .... I’m assuming cause of the carb being semi filled with gas ??

      So I’m reading these horror stories of the stock vacume operated petcocks failing and letting gas into the oil .... how many of you guys switched over and is it worth it to switch to manual ?

      Hey guys . I feel like I post here way to much lol 
      anyway after having my bike kn it’s side overnight to fix a cracked stator cover .... I come to find out that I also accidentally left the pet cock in the prime position .... constant gas flow to carb ... now my oil smells strongly of gas ... my question is ... was it the bike being on its side that made the gas get into the oil or the prime position on petcock that made this happen ? Or both ? I didn’t ride it much at all after discovering... I assume. I should drain the oil obviously but any other suggestions ? Always appreciated -mark

      Hello all, first time poster. Just bought this bike a few days ago it’s an 08 drz 400sm and am starting to notice it has a strange backfire at idle. I understand a little bit at decel might be normal, but at idle too?  It appears to have been jetted already, judging by the fact it has a jd jetting sticker on the bike itself. I know that it’s not an exact indicator it has but it could be. Has an FMF exhaust, it looks like a full system rather then a slip on but not entirely sure. A buddy recommended I mess with the air and fuel screw, haven’t done that yet. Just wanted to see if there was any other tips I should try.
