Help with Allen and locknut size on 1200gs Swingarm

Gotta add to my tools in order to get the swing arm off an 07 1200GSA. Does anyone know what the size socket and Allen I need?

[IMG][/IMG]12 & 30 for an 1150,at NAPA.On ebay there's a 30 that's cut already from UK.Cheap! FYI, HF has a caliper for $10 that's good for measuring thing like this.
I ground a socket with my bench grinder.

Thx. Duh on the caliper! I have one. Nothing like having tools you don't use.

I'm not sure if the 1200 ,1150 are same size.But the 12mm Allen from NAPA is nice and long and length for going in socket works great!

Wow, you're brave huh?
Sure could've gone bad if you out the wrong allen wrench on that to test it out.

Sorry, could not resist.

True. But I didn't have anything that size so I wanted to minimiZe the number of Allen's and sockets that I bought at auto zone.

All good.

Pretty simple, just insert a bolt head you have in your collection to determine size.
