Hey guys I did a couple searches and came up with naught. Does anyone know the MM size of the rear axle pinch bolts? I just had my tires changed on my N1K and the chain is super loose. I have all the torque wrenches I just need to buy a new allen socket and can't find the size. Thanks ahead of time! :)

The pinch bolts are 8mm.

Pick up a 12mm, too.

8mm loosens the pinch bolts. Then, keep axle tight. You only loosen the pinch bolts. Bring the 12mm in to rotate the eccentrics, which are still tied together with the tight axle.

You could be done in under 1 minute.

Autozone has a nice 3/8" drive set with the 8 mm for $9, and a 1/2" drive set with the harder-to-find 12mm for $13.
