Hi All

I am off to buy torque wrench and some sockets to undo my front & rear wheels on a 07 Tiger. Could someone confirm the lock nut sizes in metric please(millimeters)for the front & rear wheels also how many Pounds or Newton torque should be applied to each wheel nut when tightening.

Thankyou.

80 ft/lbs (110 Newtons) front and rear.

The rear nut is 27mm. I THINK the front is 23mm socket head. That's nearly impossible to find here in the US so many of us make a tool out of a 7/8" sae bolt head.

Or for the front you can use one of those universal hex gadgets available at motorcycle shops.
