Where Do I Find This Tool? - July 2, 2011, 04:08 PM

I'm trying to find the tool to loosen/tighten the steering stem head nut as shown in the picture. I know its a Suzuki specialty tool however is there any other tool I could buy from Home Depot to do the job?? I don't feel like getting raped on the price. The mechanic at Suzuki told me to just use a screwdriver and a hammer which is all fine and dandy but then how da fack am I supposed to torque it? M'I right !

09940-14911: Steering stem nut wrench
09940-14960: Steering stem nut wrench socket
Steering stem nut: 45 Nm (4.5 kgf-m, 32.5 lb-ft)

Loosen the top nut and tap the lower one snug but not tight. Lock the top nut down on the bottom one but not too crazy. The torque specs are a little confusing, do it by feel.

ADJUSTABLE STEERING STEM TOOL WRENCH ANY MOTORCYCLE + | eBay

This is your best bet. It also allows to use a torque wrench with it.

Lol thanks bubba! I figure torquing it is not a real issue since the upper triple and the triple nut for it will be torqued.

Where is the HF set? Can't find it online anymore.

The ebay one looks okay but will have issues if you get too far away from the arch of the main arm.

You could always do the old Dremel a socket trick.Get a socket that fits it,mark the places where the teeth extend out of the nut and cut.


ALL MY HEROES ARE RUSSIAN...GO CAPS!

Well you see, Norm, its like thisA herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Now, as we know, excessive intake of alcohol kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. And that, Norm, is why you always feel smarter after a few beers.-Cliff Claven

If I ever get that handy or mechanically inclined, I will beat off to myself.
