I thought about getting a ride together but its too wet. I like to wait 2 - 3 days after the least rain for the forest roads to dry and water levels to recede.

Ummmm, you're gonna need a bigger boxed end wrench than 1/2 inch to get your rear axle nut off... You may wanna start with using a metric socket instead. Not sure what size mine is off the top of my head, maybe 21 or 23 mm???:eh:

+1....the last thing you need is a bigger headache from rounding the edges of the bolt. If you need some help, I have got a garage, rear stand, and the proper tools. As far as the front axle....I've heard of people using the backside of a spark plug socket, but not sure if that works for all bikes.:eh:And I know for a fact that I do not have an allen wrench that large.

Once again, it should be metric, not standard.
