don't need it. leave the two pinch bolts tight on that side, and loosen the two on the other side of the axle. then loosen the axle and remove. no need to mess with the allen wrench side at all.

another question. i've managed to get everything off, just need to mask some stuff for the powder coating. my question is when i put the wheels back on is it necessary to torque them specifically?

most certainly!! rotors, axle, bottom fork pinch bolts, calipers, etc.

i dont see why i would need to torque the bolts that hold the rotors on to a specific ft/lb. same with the calipers, it's just some bolts that hold it to the forks.
