    Will this fit?

    Hi. I'm trying to find some cheap aluminum hexes to replace my stock one. Do you think this will work? It's 12mm as well. Ebay.

    It looks like the hole in them is 4mm. In that case they wont fit.

    Do you know what is the size for the center hole? I guess the measurement for the hex I linked above is (Dia. 12mm x 6mm.) http://www.helipal.com/102042-alumin...acer-12mm.html

    When you look at the pics closely, I think the diameter of the hole is 1/3 of the diameter of the hex. Which is 4mm. You need 5.
    the 12 x 6 is the diameter and the width of the hex itself. I wonder what the quality is for prices like that. Not that they always go hand in hand, but this seems to good to be true.

    I'm almost tempted to buy it and try it out since the well known one are like almost quadruple the price. Even the quality if questionable it's basically a nut, how bad can it be right?

    If you look at the price, I agree it wont be a huge loss, but I have seen hexes split in halves.
