Another special tool for the BMW. This socket is for the forks. Both the top and bottom fork nuts and the triple tree steering stem nut are 36mm.

I modified the socket (right) by grinding down the lip to remove the beveled portion of the socket (left). I did this to allow maximum grip between the socket teeth and the nut head. The top fork nuts are not very tall, and with the bevel the socket would likely slip off the nut as I apply torque, thus rounding the corners of the nut… ask me how I know, do’h!
