Need one small measurement before 4:00 today

Hey guys... My helibars are in at my dads shop.... I"m going to pick them up and hopefully put them in this evening. One problem, I don't have a big enough wrench at home to get the steering head stem nut off. I need to know what size socket I'll need to get that baby off... I know it's 58lb.ft. torque, but the service manual doesn't list a size.... help will be appreciated...

hmmm.... I just looked on Ron Ayers Microfiche and it said 28mm.....

It's the very top nut on the triple.... the one in plain view.... seems like 28mm is more rational cause I know it's right about 1 inch..... 28mm = 1.102inches....

did it change from 04/05 maybe?

92210-0097 is the steering head stem nut at the top of the triple for 04-05... it's a 28mm... this according to Ron Ayers

BD is correct. If it is an 04 or 05 it is 36mm. I remember having to go to Sears to get mine.

what about the Ron Ayers Fiche though??? the Kawi dealer told me it was 28mm as well.... I think you guys are thinking of the one below the top triple....it's 35mm according to Ron Ayers...

We are talking about the nut in the center of the triple tree. If so it is 36mm.

I just did mine not too long ago when I put on my GPR and it is a 36mm, I think 28mm is the actual thread part of the stem.

Trust us, it is 36mm.
