    Hi Guys,
    Need to remove the front wheel from my Trophy.

    What size is the big allen key on the right hand side of the bike?

    Cheers

    Dave.

    Get an axle tool like this, if you haven't done so already:

    https://www.revzilla.com/product/motion-pro-hex-axle-tool

    Lots of different vendors sell a similar tool with the same 17-19-22-24mm hex.  So far, I have not come across a road bike front axle that it doesn't fit.  Unlike an "L" allen key, you can drive this tool with a torque wrench.
    Converto, ergo sum.       '15 300RR, '15 250XCF-W, '14 K1600GT, '12 VFR1200, '05 GSXR600 (track).

    Does the bike's tool kit come with a wrench to remove the front wheel?

    In times of desperation, I have found a proper sized bolt, whose head fit the axle, and welded a nut on the other end which enables the use of a box end wrench or socket.

    You've ordered a special tool now anyway but - head of M10 bolt fits, with two M10 nuts locked on the other end of the bolt.

    To test a man's character, give him (horse) power.
