Does anyone know what wrench or socket sizes I would need to change my tires? I am also looking at buying Pitbull front and rear stands? Any complaints?

EDIT: I mean to take off the wheels...

Yeah, they're too damn expensive! Besides that, they work great. Especially with the 929 and the offset swingarm...

Don't know the socket size off the top of my head...

Yeah, I saw that they are up there, but I can get 20% off each one. Can't pass that up.

PitBull stands are awesome. Yeah, they're expensive, but you get what you pay for. They're very sturdy.
Sockets: 12mm for the brake calipers and axle pinch bolts.
22mm for the front axle bolt.
32mm for the rear axle bolt.

Get yourself a torque wrench, too.:)

Thanks HTG. Since you brought it up, do you happen to know the torque specs?

EDIT: I meant Thanks HGT =)

That would help, huh? :)
Front brake caliper bolts: 22 ft lb (and a dab of red locktite)
Front axle pinch bolts: 16 ft lb
Front axle bolt: 58 ft lb
Rear axle nut: 83 ft lb

The service manual says to use new brake caliper bolts each time, but I reuse them. I just check them good first. If the middle of the bolt starts looking "thinner", replace it.

If you're using a front stand that lifts by the forks (not the steering head), be careful when tightening the axle pinch bolts or you'll strip the threads...or so I've been told.
