My calipers say 24. Couldn't get the socket on to double check without taking the bars off.

Hint. Back off the preload and put a jack under the engine to unweight the front (don't have to actually lift it, just let the forks extend and the springs unload) - makes it much easier to get off, and more importantly - back on.

I wouldn't use an impact on that, you'll be cussing later...

Those aluminum caps are quite soft.
