    Axle Nut Size

    Went to take off the rear wheel, and realized I didn't have the correct size socket for the axle nut... I'm wondering what the axle nut size is for the rear wheel, its a non-castlenut version on a 1997.

    Emeril Legasse nut cracker

    As Emeril says, "take it up a notch, BAM!" Well this fellow is very lucky, and was for about 25 years, because he was using a Chicom hand grenade to crack-open walnuts during that time! How-many times watching WW II movies have you seen combatants throwing the same grenade at each other...

    Nut of midgear/differential broke (pinion gear)

    Guys, Maybe a stupid question. But better asked then left behind in the darkness of my mind :biglaugh: I am from the Netherlands so my English may be a little off. From what I could find on the other topics, it is called my midgear/pinion gear or differential broke (see picture)...

    Castle nut size

    So I thought I posted this earlier (my apologies if I did as I'm using the tapatalk app). I need to know what size the castle nut is on the rear axle. Bike bandit doesn't list the size, just the name and that they want 20 bucks for it. Thanks for the help!

    Axle nut size??

    Don't ask how, but the castle nut on the rear axle is less than usable after a recent incident........ Just need to know the size of that thing so I can order a new one!! Bike bandit simply lists it as a castle nut for $20. Don't think I need to spend 20 bucks on a nut... Or do I??

    Staking/Unstaking middle gear nut

    How do you properly unstake the middle gear nut and also restake it? What tools do you use and what procedure? I want to remove and replace that nut in the engine. Also if its done in the engine willing the banging around on the nut cause any unwanted consequences on the tranny?
