So im puttin my bike back together after puttin my new fork skins on:thumbsup: and im torquing down my front axle nut. I then hear a loud snap. Yep, axle nut stripped. :thumbsup: The axle on my 07450 felt significantly lighter than my 04250f. I always had a bad feeling about it.

Just hoping i can broaden the possibility of finding a part for this weekend so i can ride:cry: :thumbsup:

Take your axle to the dealer and try to spin the early nut on it (clean the threads up first). If it's the same thread, you should be able to get full thread contact by hand.
