I have several metric hex key sockets (its easier using a breaker bar and hex key socket to take off wheels). I have one for my 650R and one for the g/fs SV650. I am sure one of the two would likely work. Just give me a shout if you need one sometime today.

That works for removing the axle but is not good when putting the wheel back on. Not good to tighten the pinch bolts until the axle is tight. I rarely have to put the hex tool in when torquing the axle, though.
