Don't worry about the metric size. Just call a Suzuki parts department and tell them Year and Model of your bike and see if they have a nut in stock. The nut is what is called a "castle nut". There should be a cotter pin inserted through the castle and through the drill hole in the axle then spread around the nut. This keeps the nut from coming loose.

I believe the part number for the nut is 09159-12027
The cotter pin number is 04111-25308

Please rate this solution. Thanks! :)

I can't get the axel out

Hi, is this the rear axle,
Kawasaki realy do suffer badly with corrosion preventing rear wheel spindle removal, remove the castlated nut from the axle, tunr the nut around and screw it on with the castle cutouts facing the frame untill the end of the nut is level with the end of the spindle, this way you will not cause damage to the axle threads, using a large hammer, give sharp blows to the end of the nut makeing sure you hit it square to avoide causing damage, keep knocking untill the spindle moves, then undo the nut some and hit some more, then from the opposite side cleane the spindle, lubricate and knock it back the other way, then back again, repeating this action untill you can knock all the way through with a drift of the same size, (TIP) placing a hammer or piece of wood under the tyre will prevent the wheel falling down when spindle is removed from 1side of the swinging arm easing removal, clean, spindle, bearings etc lubricate before replacing) when removing the sprocket housing from the wheel do not omit to replace spacer as fitted inside the hub, often people forget to replace this causin bearing failure

How to remove rear wheel

hi, is your bike a naked 1 or fully kitted out with boxes, either way the process is the same, but on the boxed up 1, it requires the removal of the l/h/side boxes to gain axses to the rear caliper bracket, it is best if you secure the bike on its main stand, with some blocks underneath each leg of the stand for height, this will give you more room to remove the wheel past the long rear mudguard, 1st undo the nut from the rear wheel spindle, slacken off and remove the bolt securing the rear brake caliper towards the front of the caliper on the l/hand side, 14mm this may be quite tight as it has a large thread, re lubricate this on replacment,undo the 12mm pinch bolt from the rear spindle l/hand side, the spindle should now knock out from the right hand side through to the left, once removed the rear caliper bracket can then be lifted out from location it may be nessasary to push home the brake pads for clearance, once removed you then need to remove the wheel from the rear diff, this should take only a pull towards you but sometimes they need a bit of a tap on the tyre with a mallet or rubber hammer, once off the diff you can then tilt the wheel over and remove not all that bad a job on unboxed models,more time consuming on boxed models, all the best

Any one know where to buy a rear rim that will fit a 2006 DR-Z125L? Looking to find a cheap alternative to OEM.

You can purchase a rim for your bike from a host of different makers and suppliers, just needs to be the same size. IE: 90/100-16 or 3.60" - 4.10" x 16" and same the spoke number as hubs.

RC30 Rear Wheel Spindle.

I presume u mean the thread does not protrude much (if at all) past the nut
How does the nut lock?
split-pin / R clip or cir-clip - it must come through much further
tab / spring-washer - it should be at least flush (level) with the nut
or if it is a Nylock / Aircraft-style locking nut - the spindle should protrude at least 5mm to allow for the thread lead-in

Ride safe
Please mark this as very helpful (if it has been!!)

Squeak at left rear wheel due too loose axle spindle nut. What is recommended torque setting for the spindle nut on 1990 corvette conv.

With an assistant depressing the brake pedal to prevent the wheel from turning, tighten the spindle nut to 164 ft. lbs. (223 Nm). The vehicle should not rest on the tires or move until the spindle nut is tightened.

Does any one know the torque settings for the rear wheel spindle nuts on a cm125?

try 8.5-10.5 kgf m using torque wrench or just turn the nut slowly until it reches the point where more effort is required, just add 1/4 turn and that should be just about right. Good enough?
