On the Vee, the axle can't spin.
My tool kit contains a nice laser-cut axle wrench intended for the KLR650. It has a 24mm hex for the rear wheel (same as needed for the DL650 and 1st-gen DL1000) and a 22mm hex for the KLR's front wheel. However, I don't think anyone is making these any more:
It's sturdy enough you can kick it to loosen a stubborn axle nut.
On the Vee/Wee, perhaps you could do something similar, but with a 19mm or 12mm wrench on the other end, and include a appropriate hex stub for removing the axle.
Not sure what sizes are needed for the 2nd-gen Vee...
