Rear Axle Nut Size?
« on: February 27, 2018, 05:43:39 PM »
I need to do a quick chain adjustment.  I thought I saw a reference to the rear axle nut being a size 33, but could not verify this in a forum search. I also checked the owners manual, but they do not show the size of the nut.

Anybody know the size?

Thanks

Yup - 34mm.
a 34mm socket and T-bar fits nicely under the pillion seat, along with my Disc-lock and small spanner and driver selection.

Many tools will do the job mate, hammer and chisel, adjustable spanner, stillies.... Never the less it's a 34mm.
