Hi all, Im changing the boots on my GRiSO and want to save some cash by taking the loose wheels to the garage. Can You tell me the size of the front wheel bolt. I dont have a socket currently thats large enough, the largest I have is 19mm, this must 22 or 23 im guessing, but want to be sure before I purchase.

Thanks,
Andrew

I use a adjustable spanner without any problem.

Thank you all,

My adjustable spanner only grows to 25mm, so new tool required either way Very Happy

30mm socket worked great. So I took the loose wheel to tyre fitters, brought back yesterday, to find that the tyre has been put on the opposite way to what the previous tyre was. This means the wheel need to go on differently that how it came off. Being twin disc wheel, other than the calipers probably not fitting the discs initially is this a problem?

Well, no. If you look at the spokes there is a directional arrow on one of them. It’s there because, like tyres, they are designed to take the most stress one way. On the front in brake, on the rear under power.

Take it back and get Captain Clueless to do it right......

Thank you, i was looking for that arrow yesterday. Will look again properly tonight and take the wheel back. They also forgot to put the dust cap on the valve. They have had a shocker.

Thank you for the response
