1983 gl1100 clutch lock nut

Post by chris22indy@att.net »



So I ordered the 20/24 mm spanner socket and it does not fit it needs to be about 25 mm. Anybody know a fix besides manning your own?

Sorry to say that I do not have nor could I find it on the internet or this web site. This site should create a section for information like this. It would be beneficial to have the size of the nut documented so a proper tool can be obtained / made. I found some sockets on the web that provided dimensions but not knowing the size of the nut cant suggest which is correct. Hopefully someone with a clutch nut removed can measure it with a caliper, to be accurate, and add dimensions to the attached sketch so you / we all can benefit. Good Luck !!!

The nut is a 25mm. Since the tool you bought is 24mm you can use a file or a drimmel tool and remove .5 mm from the inside of each tooth.
