Monster 1200 front and rear axle sockets

I've tried searching with surprisingly different answers on this. Is the rear a 12 point 55mm socket? Is the front a 30mm socket? I'll stay clear of the aluminum sockets but I think the speedymoto is a bit overkill. Will this work? Why don't they have nut sizes listed in the service manual?!

Answers to your questions... Yes, yes, probably best. Should if impact ready. Because Ducati Corp are idiots.

Yes that linked dual sprocket is the correct size and should work. However because the rear nut is usually torqued to around 170 lbs/Ft so if this tool isn't rated for impact use, I wouldn't bother.

I ponied up and got individual 55 mm ($45) and 30 mm ($16) impact sockets (front isn't really necessary impact). With my impact gun, the rear nut came off no sweat.

Good luck.

You'll need a big breaker bar... Only just got my 1200S, but my previous bike (Multistrada 1200S) had a torque setting of something crazy like 250ftlb on the rear wheel nut... Needless to say I always paid extra for fitting!

I'll second impact sockets. I just did a sprocket change on my S2R and ordered an impact off of Amazon. It came off without a sweat and is much easier than trying to use a breaker bar while trying to keep the wheel from turning.

I use a 1/2" Ingersoll Rand air impact. I've had it for over a decade and it's always worked great.
