2020 XR - Rear Axle Nut Size
« on: August 27, 2020, 05:34:28 PM »
Dear Collective,

On my 2017 XR I used a 34mm socket to loosen the rear axle nut when adjusting the chain.

Is it the same on the 2020 XR does anyone know? I'm assuming yes but I don't want to be caught out when my new XR arrives in a month's time.

Cheers!

Andy W, did you get an answer for your question of 2020 Rear Axle nut size?  1 week into a 2020 and would like to now also.  I did measure using calipers and seems to be 35 mm but.....

I bought a 34mm socket which I've used on my 2020XR when adjusting the (normal) chain , as it was way too slack within only a few hundred miles (during running in)

When I was at my dealer last Thursday for the recall work I asked as I didn't have a socket that fit...shop told me it was a 35mm.

Here is the socket I used to undo and re-tighten my 2020 XR rear axle nut

Looking like 34 or 35 would get the job done.  My caliper measurement of the nut reads 1.356 inches, converts to 34.442 mm....why I though 35 was correct but .442 mm isn't much over.
Thanks macduff

I already had a 35mm in my tools arsenal and I did try it for size, but even though it was a six side socket it felt too loose for comfort and I ended up ordering a 34mm of amazon (damn shame  local tools stores couldnt get one in a resonable time frame)
