    Get yourself a set of Torx sockets (Male & Female), as all (the majority) the bolts use Torx.

    IIRC they're a 30, but not 100% confident on that.

    Howdy,

    Hex & Torx requirements for the F800 can be found here.
    Regards,

    I have the male Torx set but all I need is one off female socket for this application. T30 looks to small.

    Hi Phil
    That list shows a T30 but that will be too small for the F800GT. I suspect it is T50 but it would be good to get some confirmation

    The three screws (2 clamping, 1 adjusting) use an E10 socket.

    BTW: BMW specifies a torque value and sequence for tightening the clamping screws (15 Nm, then 30Nm, slacken adjusting screw, then 30Nm again)

    Thanks, that's perfect!

    E10 for the rear hub.
