Le Mans Mk 5 Top of Fork Leg Nut

Hello, me again

I need to remove the top nut from the fork legs to replace the ATF. I measure it at 38mm - is that correct?

Has anyone successfully removed the nut with an adjustable spanner? I don’t want to spend £25 on a new spanner I’ll only use once!


Please don’t use an adjustable , use a good ring spanner or a socket . Good luck

Unfortunately yes in my experience. Or you might be able to borrow one from somebody.

As for only using it once, depends how long you expect to keep the bike, if more than a couple more years then you’ll need it again. (?)
