Hi. I plan to get an adapter alright, but I know its tight enough. The spring washer will ensure it's safe along with the lock clip held with a tie wrap!!
I'll defo get the adapter though.
Thank you ;-)

46mm 1/2 sockets are readily available online, and arent that expensive.   Its a bit annoying having to buy a new socket, but its more stable than an adapter (the adapter makes the whole thing a bit long, and prone to slipping off when youre pulling hard on the wrench handle).

Thanks Mike, I'll check out in the local engineering toolshop, they have a huge range so will probably have something.

One thing I have noticed since I have the wheel sorted is with the bike lifted off the ground there is a slight rocking from top to bottom on the wheel. It feels as if the bearing is slightly knocking. Is there a spec for this or should there be no play there at all??

Cheers!

What's your mileage? And has that bearing ever been lubricated (they're often missed)?

The bike is 2015 with 13k km. the bearing was never checked. I will torque the wheel and see how it fares then.
Thanks!!

Shouldnt be any noticeable play, worth noting that if you have the bike on the main stand it can seem as though the play is in the wheel but its actually in the stand, or even the swingarm? 4 years old even with the low mileage I would want to grease everything, bearing,  linkage etc etc.

Where you in Ireland, Im landing Rosslare next Sunday and heading for Kerry

Timbox,
I only have a side-stand and a jack!
I am pretty sure the rocking is in the wheel bearing, I will get the wheel torqued and then I will know more for sure.

Welcome to the Island! Have you been before?
Drop me a message if you want some advice on places to visit around Cork/Kerry.

Thanks.
