Re: Steering stem nut socket

Don't know why this is coming up after six years but you're right. The top nut is the same as the rear axle nut (36 mm). I got mine at OSH for around $3.50 when they cleared out some Craftsman sockets.

The lower spanner nuts need something different. Suzuki sells it for a bunch of money. sells it for less. Turbosuzukis sells it for still less on Or you can make one like this.

Re: Steering stem nut socket

Correct, the steering yoke nut is the same size "36mm" as your rear axle nut, you have a tool in your bikes tool kit for it. Note: it may be tight so you nay need a pipe extension for leverage
