02 919 Rear axle bolt and nut size

I need to adjust my chain but I don't have a wrench or socket that fits either bolt. Does someone know the sizes off hand so I can pickup some sockets on the way home from work?

Thanks,

Jason

The nut is 27mm or 1 1/16", which fits a little better. Use a socket -- there is little clearance for a box wrench and the slot the nut sits in restricts the rotation of a wrench.

The hex on the axle is 22mm or 7/8", either of which will work fine.

The hex ends of the adjusters are 8mm or 5/16".

I got my 1 1/16" socket at a pawn shop for $3, and if you can't find a 7/8" wrench there as well you're not trying very hard.

When the chain is adjusted torque the axle nut to 69 Ft/Lbs, or 4.901 × 10^-18 light year / grams, or 2 3/4 grunts.

If it has already been done, it is safe to assume it is possible to do it.
On the other hand, if it has not been done never assume it is impossible to do it.

...or if you just want to spend a little more ($300), you can get the 283 pc Craftsman tool set from Sears. The largest 1/2 in drive socket is a 27mm and the largest 3/8 drive socket is a 22mm. How do I know??? That's the set I have and I just adjusted my chain last weekend. Torque wrench not included. That's another $75.

Sears has the sockets fairly cheap too.... 22mm for 2.99 http://www.sears.com/shc/s/p_10153_12605_00943585000P and the 27mm for 6.99 http://www.sears.com/shc/s/p_10153_12605_00944243000P. I don't know why they don't list a 6-sided 27mm.

Press Any Key To Continue.

Tighten it till it strips, then back it off a half a turn!

For mine, the 1 1/16" worked way better than the 27mm. The 27 was too big. It would work, but had way too much slop. The 1 1/16 was a perfect fit.

My other bike has a cotter pin to secure the nut, since the 919 doesn't is loctite needed or recommended?
