Rear axle socket size

9 posts in this topic

Please help.....

I am getting new tires tomorrow and need to remove my rear rim. What size is the nut? I thought it would be 22mm like the front but I obviously was wrong. Is it a 26mm? I need to get a socket lickety split. As I need to take this tired ass to bed at a reasonable hour. Work at 5:30am. :)

Thanks my fellow thumpertalker,

Ego, I tried to get the 27mm but Lowe's didn't have it.

Dont worry if the center gets wore out becouse of that

I seen ya ride, you dont use the center always the sides :)

Thanks for the advice on break-in Ego. Good thing for you I don't live on your street ! :) I can't wait to try them out. I may have to go for the day tomorrow (Monday)

Funny thing though, I don't remember seeing your ride.... Oh wait.... THATS CAUSE YOU WERE BEHIND ME! :D

P.S. The XR70 I did see you ride doesn't count. :D
