TV Front Wheel Spindle Removal

Sorry if I'm showing my ignorance here.

In my defense I am accustomed to bikes with four front axle pinch bolts. I have some new rubber on order and will be attempting my first tire change on the TVL. In scoping out what I need to do in the work shop manual on the front tire has me a little off balance. If I am reading it correctly, the MV equivalent of pinch bolts, 2 of them are removed from the forks before loosening the spindle nut. After removal of the pinch bolts what keeps the axle from spinning? Do I need a huge hex driver to hold the spindle while backing off the spindle nut? If so what size is it? In the alternative, can remove the spindle side pinch bolt, loosen the spindle nut while the non-spindle nut side pinch bolt is still tight? The Reassembly instructions, likewise have the spindle tightened to 60NM with the spindle pinch bolts not installed until after tightening. Any tips and pointers would be appreciated.

I am not 100% certain of the TV front axle set up, but if there is a recessed hex on one end and an external nut on the other with pinch bolts on both ends, then you can loosen the nut with only the nut side pinch bolts loosened....then loosen the other side pinch bolts and extract the axle. Install in reverse order EXCEPT, after you torque the axle nut loosen all the pinch bolts and move the suspension a few times to let the forks go into alignment. Then torque the pinch bolts.

Appreciate the guidance. The TV does have the set up with a large hex end on the spindle on opposite the spindle nut.

Ha!
That's the only "special" tool in common to my Buell XB and MV and I have one!
The front axle nut it's 28mm; found on eBay for <$10 including shipping.

Thanks for the help with this. I splurged and got a CrMo one off Amazon on the way. I bought some big sockets for the KTM: 27mm to 32mm so the 28mm should be ok.
