How the F do you get it out? Obviously the answer is unscrew it, but where does one find a 14mm allen socket? Not sears, and all my sets only go to 10mm. I tried making a 'special' tool out of a bolt but I broke the red locktite holding the bolt on. Grrrr...

Got mine at Tool Town, maybe $10 or so. I'm not sure if it is a local chain.

Have a good one.

I bought one off ebay.....

Don't forget to get a new washer to replace the old one.

I saw a Mac tool truck at a shop along the road. Bought one of him, pricey

if you go to the Home Depot (or lowes etc) and go to the threaded rod area there will be threaded rod couplers. If you check a couple of sizes you'll find one that has a 14mm hex. I think it goes with the 1/4" threaded rod or the 3/8" threaded rod. Basically you'll have a 14mm hex extrusion that you can put in a 14mm socket or put a wrench on the other end. It's probably $2.

I got mine at Auto Zone. I *think* they have them at Harbor Freight too.

Got one from Harbor Freight, also, if you happen to own an 851/888, or older Monster, the axle wrench that came with the tool kits(remember those?) with these bikes fit!

If autozone has a better selection of hand tools than the biggest Sears I've ever seen, I'm going to eat my helmet. Well, time for some GS500 riding like good old times!

...so, I was thinking bbq sauce on the grill...

I did find on at autozone (came with a 12 and 17) for $10. yay! I never would have thought in a million years that craftsman would fail and autozone would win.
