Ok guys. What size is the axle nut and head set nut in millimeters. I have a 1 1/16 wrench for the axel nut but nothing big enough for the head set. This is on a 05 wr450. Is the axel nut 27mm and the head set 30mm? :)

I used a 1 1/16 on the nut and since the head bolt was locked in the swingarm I didn't use anything on it but after reading your post I checked my biggest socket, 1 1/8 and it wasn't big enough. My manual says the rear axle and nut is 20mm but I don't have one that big. Sorry, no help. :)
