Upper Triple Tree Brass Nut Size?

I searched and couldn't find anything. What size is the brass nut on the upper triple tree in the center? I got my GPR stabilizer and need to go buy a socket because I dont have any that big but I dont know what size it is.

Thanks,
Phil

My old GPR top nut was an 1 1/4" nut. The stockers are 36mm

36. I remember using the same socket as the rear axle. The shop manual should also tell you

Its 36.
Now your next question my end up, where to get one ?
I ended up getting a half inch Impact Socket from tool depot here.
Instead of paying 35 bucks for a chrome job, it was les than 10 bucks
Oh -
you likely do this already, but tape the edges so you dont scratch that
triple clamp or the nut !
I tape all my tools, no tool scratches on my bike.

Oh snap, my bad Just measured, yeah it is 36 - confused it with the one on the SRAD, I guess - measured that too, that's 32...


But I was right about it not being brass...

you're forgiven...this time


And to buy one, just get a set of sockets from craftsman. I think it's 28-36mm and it was around 30/40 or so
