Steering stem nut vs motor mount nut?

I'm going to need the tool for both the steering stem nut and the motor mount nut. 04 DL 1000.

Are they the same size? My google-fu has failed.

What "size" am I going to need for each? I'm guessing they are different sizes?

Links to each "tool" would be appreciated, or...just let me buy yours. :-)

To find out if they are the same, assuming you have the service manual, check what special tools are need for both locals and if their part number is the same. I would almost bet you they are not, but I have been wrong before.

I'm going through the steering stem bearings and it would be nice to have the spanner nut socket. Hammer and punch is a bit damaging.

www.motionpro.com has the special engine sockets.

Looking for a place for all the special suzuki tools myself. Cheap would be best.
