Very long story short. I had to sell my tool box and all of my tools so i have nothing to work with. I have to borrow the tools to do the R&R of my front rim tomorrow. Can someone please tell me the exact size allan wrench and socket or anything else i need to remove my front rim please.
Thank you all

22mm socket for the axle and 8mm allen key for the pinch bolts. You may also need something with a 4-5mm round shaft to wriggle the axle out.

Ed, good to see you made it down hear to Florida. It sure is getting hot hear and it's only going to get hotter for a few months. Hope you get your Wing blinged out as nice as your old one. Good luck with the front tire job. If you can make yearit down to St. Pete. some Thur. night your are welcome to join us (The St. Pete Scooter Club) for a ride. We also are having our second rally November 09, 10, 11 and 12 we had a great time last year and I think this year will be even better. One of our local scooter shops has offered us a 150cc scooter as one of our raffle prizes. Last year we had over 80 prizes and hope to top that this year. Hear is a link to the rally.

Ed, if Pinellas Park isn't to far south for you, you could give Robert at Seminole Scooters a call and i'm sure he can help you. Tell him I said to give you the 10% discount he gives us at the St. Pete. Scooter Club. Hear is a link to his web site. http://seminolescooters.com/ It may be to far to drive if you can find someone up there local.

pdoug, since you don't know how to introduce yourself or use the search function, then yes, you should go to a shop and pay someone else to do everything for you. Would you like for someone to come and ride the scooter there?

Evidentley I crossed the new member line by not introducing myself.
I purchased my SW used in 2006 with about 15000 miles, and loved every mile I have put on it. It is a 2002 burgendy FSC600 and curentley has 42726 miles. The only upgrade is the GIVI windsheild and upgraded horns. I ride in north Florida, great riding area! I am tired of taking it to the shop for tire changes and am glad to have found this forum to share ideas with. Hopefully this is a sutable introduction.

It is possible to remove both wheels with just standard hand tools. I can say this with confidence because I've done it myself.

I'd suggest you purchase a service manual. You can also go to the tutorial section of this site for some step by step instruction on simple maintenance tasks.

My garage is pretty well outfitted but I'm not too fast. I also like to clean stuff a lot but didn't include that time in the wheel removal/installation time.
