Hey guys,
does anyone know what the size of the front axle nut for K7 600 is? 21mm didn't fit, and 27mm was way too big, so I know I need to go buy a socket, but how big is it? And, do you really need the 24mm Hex head to hold the other side in order to loosen/tighten the axle?
Thanks

22mm. And no you do not need the axle tool to hold the other side.

What would you recommend to do instead of the hex nut? Leave the pinch bolts tightened? Thats the onpy way I've read of yet. And also do you think using an impact gun to loosen the axle nut is a bad idea?

Use a breaker bar and leave the pinch bolts tight. The nut should come right off. Once removed loosen the pinch bolts and the axle will slide right out.
