Does anyone know what size allen wrench you need to remove the front wheel axle? The tool kit does not have one large enough to fit it.

If you have a 2010/2011 Z1000, the front axle hex size is 14 mm.
I'm removing the front wheel right now, and it's definitely a 14.

I made one from a Wheel nut for a car and welded it to a hex head bolt of the same thread.....Cost about $3 to make
THIS.

Works excellent; I remove my front wheel at least once a year!

I got a plum bob from home depot that is a 7/8" hex on the outside of the body. Slide that into the axle then turn it with a box end 7/8" wrench. Costs $5 and is solid as hell! :)

Yes the 22 is part of the axle and needs to be loosened. You could also get a long 22mm (7/8) lug nut from a truck and use a wrench on that to loosen it up.

I got mine off ebay for 10ish bucks shipped. Remember on the first gens the nut & axle are one piece. Loosen the nut and the whole axle slides out.
