What size is the rear axle nut on the v2K? I cant seem to find it in the service manual. I want to pick up a socket for it.

The wrench size isn't listed as service manuals typically don't give specifics for every common tool. They just expect a mechanic will figure out the necessary wrench/socket size.


That said, I think the nut is 27mm and the head is 22mm. Don't order on my word though as it is possible not all are the same.

I had someone off FB tell me that the axle nut is 32mm. :) sounds about right.

Not sure if you mean the 32mm or what I said.

Mine measured ~27mm across the nut flats and ~22mm across the head flats using a digital vernier caliper.

If you have the bike why not just double-check it yourself?

Even if you only have a Crescent-type wrench that size you can adjust it tight to the nut then measure the wrench opening to get an idea.
