Well spotted!

I was very fortunate to score one with my recent 2007 F4 1000R purchase. I don't think anything has even been used!

Dude, go figure out what a tapered nut means......you can't use a standard straight socket on it, because it the socket will
screw it up
If you think your bike has different wheel and sprocket nuts, look the part numbers up in the manuals Donsy has provided
for all to use

I use an aluminum socket on and air wrench to remove the wheel and sprocket nuts, because it won't mar the aluminum
nut......it takes 1 1/2 to 2 seconds to remove either of the tapered nuts with an air wrench

I don't give a flying fuck what MotoWheels has to say, they need to change 56mm to 55mm tapered

ALL MVs EVEN YOUR FAGSTER, use 55mm tapered nuts, so you need a tapered 55mm socket

If you looked in my sticky at the top of THIS Section you'd know this
You'd also know why the Oberon socket is not what you want ......you need a socket with the 1/2" drive all
The way through so you can torque the wheel nut from the left side with a 10" extension, because SnapOn
torque wrenches are 50% more accurate going clockwise (as are most torque wrenches)

I've even called motowheels but they didn't have a good answer.

As for the OP... He's got an F4 and I'm not sure if we have the same size tool requirements.

Do I need a big allen and socket or just socket?

Tools?

Alexander;
It would help if we knew the year and model......oil filters are different as are
front axle nuts

At the top of this Section I have a sticky with a complete list (1st Gen)

MV specific tools;
55mm tapered socket with the 1/2" all the way through (eBay)
C spanner for adjusting the chain (same as Ducati)
Clic-R pliers (eBay)
Oil filter wrench to fit a Purolator PL 14612 (1st Gen)

VeeTwin Welcome!
If your rear wheel nut is torqued anything like mine was, you'll need a really good quality socket AND long bar/torque wrench.
