For those that own a DL1000 and live near a Princess Auto, they have a metric set of allen key sockets on sale. The biggest socket in the set is the 19mm. I think the set was on sale for $12.97 or something like that.

Go buy it now and save yourself the hassle of scrounging around last minute when you want to change the front tire.

....or, you can go to your local metal seller and pick up a piece of 3/4" hex shaft. ( 0.75 inch = 19.05 millimeter ) I bought a 6" piece and they charged me less than a buck. I have a spare piece I could have given you.

Bahhh, BAHHHH. I needed the socket the other day though. I rounded the front of the bike and looked at the axle and just remembered that I needed that damn 19mm, I'd borrowed it the last time I needed it from a guy who's out of motorcycling now.

Well at least I have the other sockets too. Precision crafted in Taiwan, just the type of quality tool that you'd expect from Princess Auto.

Careful when you tighten the axle back up.....you don't want to break your new tool. :rolleyes:

Here's my el cheapo suggestion. Grab a metric bolt with a 19mm head, braze a nut on the end, then just use a wrench. Costs all of a buck, and made my life much easier.
