NEW! BMW Airhead Exhaust Nut Wrench

Update 9/11/2014: The design of this wrench has been revised, the updated version fits all BMW Airhead nuts (including large finned models), does not engage every fin so bent ones can be skipped and weighs only 5oz.

Price remains the same at $35.



BMW Airhead Exhaust Nut Wrench:

Strong enough for daily use, but light and small enough to be carried in your tool kit also.

Uses stock BMW lug wrench for leverage, eliminating unnecessary size and weight.

CNC machined from billet aluminum and anodized.

$35.00 plus $5.00 for shipping. (USA)









Thanks for looking!

Great idea! Way cool!

Any plans to make some for the earlier style 1970-77 exhaust nuts?

that's great. My exhaust nut wrench is indestructible but it's very big. I'm going to have to lug that thing around in my toolkit now. Lame. I looked at a lot of wrenches, wish you had made these a month ago.

It is a beaut and I'll need one this winter when I work over my exh.

But here's a noob question: All I hear about is having to struggle to get the nuts off. Is there any reason to carry an exh wrench in toolkit? What roadside failure would require removing pipes - that would not require a "real" shop?

Sublime tool

That is one of the most beautiful objects I have seen, AND it just happens to be an exhaust nut tool. I'd vote for it being in the MOMA collection.
In fact, it is so stunning I may just have to go and buy another airhead as an excuse to get one as I just parted with my last airhead a few months ago.

I am looking for a sample nut as we speak, and will probably offer one in the future, but do the earlier models have a lug wrench? Excuse my ignorance, as I have never worked on a early (non mono) Beemer.

No, the earlier models do NOT have a lug wrench.

There is that bar used with the spark plug wrench.

That could probably do something, not sure on the diameter of the lug wrench bar,.

Make one of those that'll work with the early style "Winged" nuts and I'll buy one.

Otherwise, I have no use for the tool.

PS: I've never heard of a need for an exhaust nut wrench out on the road. That would probably be the last tool I'd think to pack! Loll!!
