Hate to throw out a noob question but...

Recommended Posts

Looks like we got our first flat on our 04 150f. Just bought a pair of Maxxis Maxxcross IT's for both front and back. The question i have is what size sockets am i going to need for the front and/or back axles. I had to run to work and didn't have a chance to look myself but i wanted to make sure i pick up the right sized ones tomorrow along with the new torque wrench.

Any help would be great help :ride:

Also any tips to make it easier i would love to hear, and if you are wondering....yes i did download the .pdf file of the service manual :thumbsup:

I was hoping that it would have the size in there but it did not. It says how much ftlb torque it needs but that's about it sadly. Thanks for the video help Schrode

the front pinch nuts are 10, the front axle is 17

the rear axle is 17 on one side and 24(or 15/16 whichever you have) on the nut side

Those videos are the best. I watched them about a year ago and now I never pay to change my tires. I took it as a chance to change my buddies tires. They said they would rather pay me than a shop. During race season, I change quite a few now. After a few changes, you understand what he means about "if it is hard, your doing something wrong, and try changing it". Now, tire changes are a breeze. :thumbsup:

I havent changed my oil in a while but im pretty sure the oil drain plus isnt 24 for the 150. On mine its like 10 or 12 if I can remember right.
