(another) rear axle nut question
I know many people have had this problem, but I haven't seen the answer I'm looking for in the endless threads, so hopefully this can be answered quickly (and painlessly)
Have mercy greywolf.
2008 DL650; clean, tighten chain...castle nut threads stripped. you've seen it before.
Luckily, however, the threads on the axle are fine; the nut took all the damage.
I need to replace it to ride again, but dual-star doesn't seem to exist anymore and holeshot isn't answering their phones.
i'm impatient so I want it here sooner.
I know its a 24mm wrench size, 17mm thread diameter but what is the thread count? 2.00? 1.00?
Anyone able to fix this problem without buying a vstrom specific product?
Suzuki dealership doesnt have any in stock, and i dont want the weaksauce oem nut anyway
