Honda self locking wheel nut

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know what one mxa refer to on this? As in 250 or 450 axle nut? Looking at getting one, cheers

Please keep in mind, MXA's only gripe is the fact they have to use a cotter pin. It works just fine.

I've got one on my '11. My son rides a YZ250F so I got one for his bike and it works fine. I wouldn't taint my bike with a Honda part.

i ordered it from the local dealer, free shipping...would have paid more in shipping than the cost of the part if i bought online.

Just ditch the cotter pin and forget it. Had several we always thrash the pin and just run it. Think about it. Ever had the nut come loose and put pressure on the pin? It's there to satisfy the attorneys.

For the cost ($.05 a cotter pin) and time involved, is it even worth your time to switch it?

I've been riding Kawis for over 15 years, never used the cotter pin and never had a nut come loose... Not sure what the big deal is.
