Hexed again?

Need information on the hex key size and where to buy for an 02 meanie??
had one for my 02 ms. I think it was 22mm? cost about $40 from the dealer.
that is the same size as the v2k front axle.

I no longer pay premium price for simple tools. do this.
get a bolt with a hex head size either exact or larger than your axle dim.
if its larger, file it down to fit snug inside the axle. Put 2 large nuts on the bolt and run them into each other, tight. use a vise. Now you have a custom built tool for your front wheel removal for all of $2 dolla'.
your welcome. out, ponch

Hey, that is cheating. :D You are a smart man.

I paid the $32.95 (something like that) for the tool. I did get the black one instead of the chrome one because it could stand 50 foot pounds more torque.
