My advice, just go to CG or wherever and spend the $17+Tax.
That way once your done using it, you can use it again to take off the front wheel if need be. Whenever I need new tires I just take my wheels off and bring them in for the new tires. Costs a lot less when you do it that way so eventually the tools will have paid for themselves

I went to Home Depot, bought a big bolt, ” diameter I think, 2&1/4” long. The head is a perfect fit for the axel. So are the nuts, bought two nuts and ran the first one down the bolt till out of threads. Ran the second nut down the bolt to the first nut and tightened them against each other.
Works great, cost a couple bucks or less.

Too late to edit but this works great on my SV. Too big for my c-14. Maybe a smaller bolt…..?

Ditto...Have my home-made GSXR axle nut tool sitting in my Toolbox at home.

If u have several sized spark plug sockets, check those.
Turn it around, and put your ratchet extension thru the socket to turn.

Never have I needed something like this, is it bike specific?


I normally break the bolt in the front axle loose before fully loosening the pinch bolts and removing the axle. Can this not be done on other bikes, or are you putting too much torque into the axle bolt to make this a need?

My 636 is set up for the 22mm axle bolt.
But then my 10R is set up with a 14mm axle bolt.
It's all different.

But referring to the spark plug socket I get the impression that you are having to hold back-up on the internal Hex end of the axle in order to break the axle bolt free to remove the axle. Am I thinking about this all wrong or is this the general topic in this thread?
