Default Front Axle tool tip

I am currently working on a Victory Vision and also own a Kingpin so this little tip worked well seeing as I don't have a tool kit for Victory.

This has come up before and many do use the union. Unless there are different axle sizes I'd have to correct the guy in the video. The axle is 16mm so the union is 5/8 rather than the number he quotes. North of the 49th and everywhere else in the world the correct hex head socket is available and even in the south you should be able to order them if you choose.

Not all those who wander are lost.

If you are going to the hardware store just pick up the right tool for the job. Having a full set of metric tools I can work on several different bikes.

I have the right socket in the shop. Adding the union nut to my saddlebag tools though!

I thought it was alan key 14mm ? (or whatever mm size it was, i cannot remember) Anyway i had to go to 3 shops coz they were all sold out, and all tools are metric here ,

So i agree with the others, just measure the right millimeter alan key size and order it onlone, or buy it ...
