Rear Shock Rod Nut Size???

10 posts in this topic

I'm working on my 08 yz450f rear shock and need to purchase a new nut for the end of the rod, where the shim stacks are. I need to know what size the nut is so i can use a tap and die set to clean the rod. The old nut is junk and can't be reused.

It's an M12x1.5. Try to get an all metallic low profile lock nut.

Yep, the exact nut in the link I posted I believe, lock aside. I use high stregnth loctite on mine.

I meant loosen off to the point where the piston/shims are able to come off the shaft. I wouldn't think it'd feel good off of a 100+ foot jump.
