Tools required for front sprocket change

I'm not blessed with a whole lot of metric tools, so I'm gonna have to buy/borrow the correct ones for the front sprocket change. Can anyone tell me what size socket the axle nut takes and also what size wrenches for the locknut and tensioning bolt for the chain? It would sure save me a bunch of time when it comes time to swap out sprockets.

wtf

The most unlikely thing happened to me today. I was riding back home from my friends place, the one with the ATV trails. It's mostly gavel, but there is a 2 mile section that is dirt. Anyway, I was coming to a 90 degree turn in the dirt road, when another 250L came around the corner. What are the odds. When I bought mine on Sept 25, it was the 3rd one sold in the Nebraska. The Lincoln dealer got 8, and the Omaha dealer got 4 one week later. I got the 3rd one sold by the Lincoln dealer. I turned around to find out who it was, and where he lived, but he was gone.

Great report SDC! I enjoyed reading this and your restaurant parking lot story.

I hope you continue to keep us up-to-date on the progress with your CRF.

Same here. I suspect the dealer just filled far enough to get the gauge to register full. Several miles off the lot the first bar on the guage disappeared. No issue with mileage from second tank on. Right around 70 mpg each fill up. Over 1500 miles now on the odometer. I fill up when the last bar starts flashing. At that point usually takes about 1.4 gallon to fill up.

Might I ask what you owners are paying for this motorcycle out the door? They will certainly be more where I live, and the only Honda dealer on the island is 125 miles away. I am thinking of this bike along with the Yamaha XT250 and TW200, and I see that Suzuki is making the DR200 again also.

8mm to get the front sprocket cover off, 10mm to get the front sprocket off and 10 and 12mm for the chain adjusters. The rear axle itself is 19mm and I believe the lock nut is 22 or 23mm, it's a size I don't have so I use and adjustable. Most of this will have been included in the tool kit, except of course the sockets.

Remove the axle adjuster bolts from the swingarm and give them a good coat of antisieze. Do it now, rather than later or you will pay the price.

I came up with all the sockets/wrenches except for the rear axle nut. Went to the parts store.....they didn't have a 23mm socket but had the 24mm. I brought it home and the 24mm seemed really sloppy on the nut......so I decided it must be a 23 mm. Took it back and ordered the 23mm.....it will be in tomorrow....hmmmm. I may be looking for another 24mm socket now!

My Craftsman 24mm fits right...I've used it changing the front and rear sprocket as well as putting new shoes on my baby...
