Guys,

Can anyone tell me the right axle alignment\drift tool for a 2014 Hyper 821 or the diameter of the axle?

Seen a couple but none that specify they're for my exact model.

Thanks for any help.

Brian

It acts as a drift to start removing the front axles, and allows you to engage the notches in the axle to help remove and insert it gently. It also lets you hold one end of the axle so you can tighten the nut on the other end. Very useful.

Huh. Can't say I get it. I always just stick the axle in. For tightening I tighten the two pinch bolts momentarily to keep it from spinning.

Tightening the pinch bolts is the recommended way - true. But this tool acts as a drift on one side, and by having the ability to twist the axle from the other., it helps remove and insert it without much force. IE: you don't have to tap it in and you can feel if both ends of the axle are aligned in their holes. Not a required tool, I suppose, but nice to have - makes the job easier.
