Front axle tool for 1st gen R6

Anybody got one I can borrow this week? I believe it's a 19mm hex tool.

Is it just a regular hex socket?

I bought a 3 pack of bigger hex sockets from Autozone for my SV for around $10, "lifetime warranty" too.

If its just a regular hex for a ratchet, I may have it. Have to check tomorrow morning though. Google that shit and see if its a 19 for sure.

If Autozone has them, I can shoot over there. It's definitely 19mm. Problem is, I ordered one with some other parts & it got put on back order.

I've got some tires on the way in a few days & need to pull the wheels.

I'll give Autozone a shot tomorrow & see if I can cancel my other order.

If AZ doesn't have one, I'll bump this tomorrow. For some crazy reason Harbor Freight doesn't carry bigger than a 17mm Hex.

Just take a bolt that the head will fit in the axle and then tack weld a nut on the other side and now you have a low budget axle tool.


it's not the fall that kills you, it's that sudden stop

I just bought up to 36mm socket at HF (in a set). There are a few sets with the 19mm in it, look at the impact sets too.

I realize this, but it's confusing to say he needs an "allen socket not a socket socket"

then say he needs an "allen socket not a hexagonal or a double-hexagonal socket."
