Misc socket questions

What size sockets do I need to remove the rear wheel nut on the right side? I think I recall seeing someone post that it's 55mm...is this right?

Also what size for the front fork? I have a 24mm socket already but that's a bit too small.

Lastly, does anyone have a suggestion on what to use instead of those rubber "ends" for the side fairings? You know the ones that are up front, like the first 2-3 I think that screw into those black rubber boots that only have a piece of metal at the very back. So naturally when I fit those boots I want to put a bit of pressure to get the screw to contact the metal piece and then of course it comes loose from the frame.

ETA: Sorry I forgot to add that I have the F3

To answer your second question.If you are talking about the wellnuts (rubber boot with brass insert)you can change them over to Rivnuts,you can buy the rivnut tool with assorted nuts on eBay quite cheap.

i appreciate the feedback. The Rivnuts sound good, but I have no idea really what I'm looking at. I understand the nuts themselves would sit in place of the OEM wellnuts, but what is the correct threading? Do they come with a rubber piece to prevent scratching the fairing up?

They have wellnuts which hold parts of their fairings together Mitchy.

Also , the front axle nut is a 28mm as apposed to out 26mm.

Well nuts are used where vibration is a concern......and are supposed to be replaced whenever the fastener (screw) is removed, which is sort of overkill most times (although not in an airplane or race machine). Can't use loc-title and must be rechecked for tightness periodically.

Rivnuts, being metal, function in a similar manner (that is, expanded by squeezing to clamp in an open hole) but are permanent. They do not cushion against vibration, and must be drilled out if the clamping force fails preventing proper torque on the fastener.
A special riveting tool must be used, and they come in all the same thread diameter and pitch as the rubber well nuts do.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

Ok, so the Rivnuts mitchy was talking about certainly seem like a better solution but they don't have any rubber on the side facing the fairing, so there would definitely be increased vibration and also the inside part of the fairing is likely to get damaged from that vibration because the rubber also helps hold it in place. That could potentially lead to damage on the outside over time.

Although I don't like them, would it be best to just stock up on a big bag of the wellnuts next time I visit the dealer?
