Looking for a pair of thin wrenches to fit the large double nuts on the front bearings on the triple tree. Any suggestions?

I have had to fabricate my own in other appplications with my bench grinder. Do not shave any more than necessary as it weakens the tool. The thin ones are available but expensive I believe.

I'm not sure what the exact size of the nuts are, but the headset is essentially a large version of what you'd find on some bicycles. So I'm thinking Park Tools might have some cone wrenches that would do the trick.

And if Park Tools can't help, I usually find my cheapo tools at Harbor Freight. Here's a fan clutch set that might work.

Good luck!

The wrenches

I bought what I thought was a set from Bike Bandit for this specific application,it was for only one and it was 38bucks. I went to Bill Williams Tools on lancaster in Ft.Worth and they had some thin dedicated wrenches that worked perfectly for 9 bucks a piece. I got the S.A.E. equivalent,of which I forget the size(1.5in I believe) and together they did the job since it does require two wrenches to adjust the steering head bearings.
