Quick question about rear axel nut.

I'm about to walk into harbor freight for some tools and I left my notes at home. The nut on the rear axel, I think It's 24mm and I'd know for sure if I had my notes with me. Can anyone confirm or deny this for my while I look for a hex socket set and torque wrench.

It's 24mm across the flats, yes, but that isn't how you measure size.

Is 24mm not the socket size that would fit?

24mm is correct for the socket. Maybe Tom thought you were looking for an axle nut.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

Thanks guys, I really appreciate the help. This working on my own bike is requiring a lot of new tools.

Thats the best part about tools. Once you buy them you dont have to again, unless they break. Good luck with the work on the ride.

I 100% agree. I am cheap also but my tool budget I generally treat as unlimited since they enable you to save money in the long run. IMHO you can never go wrong buying tools. I pick up a lot of good quality tools at auctions.
