What Size Hex Is The Swingarm Pivot Bolt?

I'm pulling my engine and got all the wires and lines out of the way, and then hit this standstill. I don't have allen wrenches that go up to that size, so I need to order one. It looks like a 14mm. Anyone know for sure?

I have to read my damn manual here soon. I gotta rip my arm off this spring. This can't be too difficult.

Yep on the 14MM. When I did my tank, I didn't have a way to get the 14MM hex socket, so I used a 14MM grade 5 or grade 8 bolt with the end ground square so I could put a lock wrench on it.

The 2nd time around I got the 14MM hex socket

The nut on my bike was on with red loctite. It was NOT fun to get off.
