Not sure if that's aimed at me? Yes, I know how to measure a taper, did exactly that on the nut itself as well as the SpeedyMoto socket. The latter didn't have a taper.

Yep! The speedy moto socket I obtained last year does not have a taper either.
It knarfs the surface near the root edge of the nut; but I really don't care...

Rear wheel F4 and Brutale.

I use tapered sockets ..Wouldn't use a socket that doesn't match the nut properly on principle. You'll mangle the nut and makes a poor show of a classy bike !

I have a tapered aluminium socket to undo; and the best way to undo is a rattle gun without any doubt.

I have a tapered steel socket to retorque....I believe the manual says to have clean threads and apply anti-seize to the first few threads of the axle and none at all to the cone faces of nut or wheel which are meant to grip.

All works well.

Joe
