I know that I need a special 24mm tool to remove the front axle on my GSX-R 1000. Question is, is the hole in the axle deep enough for this tool to work?



Without taking a trip home to look at my bike, it would seem to me that the 22mm part would interfere with inserting the 24mm part sufficiently.

Any thoughts?

It will be close. I had the same axle on the front of my Hayabusa. I bought a front axle tool from some dood on ebay for $20. Worked well.

Up until I got the tool.. I bench ground the outer edges of a VW lug wrench until I got it down to 24mm and used that. Worked well....but the ebay tool worked better.

Depending on what it's made from... grind or cut the 22mm part off. Problem solved!

buy that tool whether you need it or not.

Then look for more cool stuff that may work & buy that too.
