I should be working instead . . .

Looking at the Sears website and thinking about getting some new sockets to wrench on the 04 450. Dont have manual with me. What size socket do I need to change the front counter sprocket. I heard 27 mm. Is that correct? How about the nut to remove the rear tire? 22MM? What other socket sizes are recommended other than the standard smaller sizes. Thanks, Steve

both rear axle nut and front sproket are 27mm.

for working on most jap bikes you need:

that should cover most of it.
