If you are asking for removal, I'm pretty sure the front is a 19mm hex and the rear is 32mm. Don't forget the pinch bolt on the front...pretty sure that's a 6mm hex.

If you want the actual size of the axle...I can measure them when I get home...

Also, when you put them back on...I think the torque values are ~52 ft/lb front and between 95-100 rear (manual calls for more but it's overkill) - double check these values...

I wonder if anyone here has tried drilling the rear axle nut and axle so that they could use a cotter pin? There's pretty much zero thread sticking out beyond my axle nut @ 100 ft/lbs, which is not very comforting to me. Here at work, we won't let a design out the door with less than three threads showing.

funny, i had the same thought (not about the drilling....about the lack of a pin) It's almost like yamaha engineers knew the bike wouldn't ride well without a front tire and then shrugged at the back and said it will slide well enough on the swingarm!
