Rear axle nut size

Can't remember what size the rear axle nut is. I need to hit up the Matco tool guy for a socket so I have one for it.

I did my tires at school in our motorcycle shop, so I didn't have to worry about supplying tools.

+1

And the front axle is a 12 mm hex head aka allen screw head.

Re: Rear axle nut size

a 15/16th socket will work just fine on a 24mm.

I don't have standard sockets that big. I've only got a few standard sockets to begin with. Couple bigger ones for lugnuts on cars, and some smaller ones, up to about 1/2 inch.

I'm just gonna get a 24mm so I have it. Can't ever hurt to have more tools!
