How big is the allen wrench needed to get the axle out? I can't believe it.I had to buy a special allen to get my Concours wheel off but this thing is huge.Where do you even get one? I had a hard time finding the one for the Concours.

Unless they changed it from the first gen, you'll need a 1/2" drive 14mm Allen socket for removal and torque upon installation.

I cheaped out and bought a bolt with the appropriate sized head on it, and welded a nut on the threaded part to put my ratchet on. You could do the same with two nuts to lock onto one another, if no welder.

I got mine from Harbor Freight...Came in a set with 4-5 other allen sockets, paid $10 I think for it all.

So what's the difference with the 2006 front axle and the 2007-2010? www.kawasaki.com lists them as different part numbers. Is it another color difference?
