Hey guys, trying to install my Woodcraft rearsets and I need to know what size allen key/socket I need to remove the peg from the factory rearset so I can get the shift lever off. Thanks

Um, 8mm I think. If you go to a half-decent tool place, a rail of 3/8 allen-headed "sockets" usually works out barely more than you'd pay for a single.

Its a Suzuki so you have to assume its Metric. Go buy your yourself a key set of metrics. I should have most of what you need. You should have it anyways if you are wrenching on you bike plus its in you stock tool kit.

are you sure you're not missing some of the tools? most of the bolts are 8/10/12 so it seems odd that it wouldn't be included in the kit

I can confirm that it is an 8 mm allen key (just to make it sure: you unbolt it from the "inside"). And this is included in the german toolkit, I don´t think that it would be different elsewhere.

Ciao

It def comes in the tool kit. I have it in mine. But it doesnt hurt to have a key set.

Odd, largest hex key I have in my tool set is 6mm, never appeared to have been opened either. Oh well, I needed some loc-tite too, at least I know what size it needs. Thanks guys
