1200 Interstate Swingarm Allen Key Size

Hi,

Sorry, tried search but it seem'ed to pull up Web results rather than forum stuff, might be me being crap and old.... Just need to known the allen key size for the 1200 84 Interstate swingarm bolt... someone has wrecked the castle nut so I'm going to drown it in WD and heat it up and get a hammer and chisel on what's left - it's so wrecked the official tool or a modded socket won't cut it. Probably why I got it so cheap off the seller as a project... But still going to give it a go.

Looks like it's somewhere between 14 and 24 but can't find sets online with big sizes and don't want to waste money buying one off sizes...

Thanks in advance,

Ady.

I'm pretty sure it is a 10mm if I recall correctly.

Thank you very much,

Didn't remember it being that small but just tried a 10mm and it's a perfect fit.

Thanks again!
