ya that will work as long as thats actually the size... just get the spark plug socket with the hex head, flip it around backwards, stick your extension in and loosen with a breaker bar.... like this...

Zaney'z tools would be proper. My bike's tool kit comes with the metric allen key to loosen the retainers on the port (left) side. I think it's either a 6mm or 8mm. The bike's spark plug tool can then be inserted into the port side socket hole and you'll need to use a pipe wrench to turn it. Caution. Apply the wrench as close to the socket as possible. It is possible to twist and destroy the spark plug tool...which is why Zaney's tool links make good sense.

Once the nut is near removed, you'll want to release the brake calipers and lift the front wheel high enough to remove it. Now loosen the starboard side allens and remove the axle and wheel.

Alright! Trading bikes for a while was fun.I'm ready for mine back. No, seriously, get off my bike. Ahh, what a privilege it is to have such a sweet ride.
