2014 front axle

Does anyone know what size of socket and hex wrench I need to take the front axle off? I have found a bunch of info on the rear but not much on the front

Norton, for the '14+ DL1K the front axle internal hex size is 24mm, the axle nut size is 30mm.
I use the Motion Pro Axle tool that has 17mm, 19mm, 22mm, and 24mm sized all in one 3/8" drive tool. https://www.bikebandit.com/manuals-t...yABEgKILvD_BwE
For the axle nut I use a Snap-on IM300 Flank Drive 30mm 6 point 1/2" drive socket.

These are cheap from China if you don't mind waiting a month for it to arrive (ship with epacket).

I should also mention, you may not even need it, when you turn the bolt on left side of axel, the shaft may not even spin. Happened on my bike the last time, still, good to have one of these around.

I bought 1 for my 14 from Adventure tech. It does the front and back axle nuts. Undo the front axle nut and remove it. Remove 1 caliper.Then loosen the 4 bolts that clamp the axle. Axle comes right out.
