27mm. That nut and the pinch bolts on either leg, are what hold the upper bridge down. The stem nuts are a two piece affair under the upper bridge.

Re:Fork tin removal? 4 Months, 1 Week ago  
I've been wanting to remove the upper and lower fork covers. I take it handlebar/riser removal is required. Is lifting the bike and removing the front fender required to do this as well? will i basically have to remove the wheel as well?

EDIT:
searched the forums. looks like all that stuff needs to come off. Does anybody have up close pics of their bike without the covers? just want to know if it's worth my time to do it. Maybe I can pay someone to do it lol.

I helped 129Drifter replace the risers on his bike awhile back. We noticed the upper bridge was much easier to get back on with the weight off the front of the bike. I'm not suggesting its impossible to do with it all setting on the ground, but as soon as we lifted it just enough so the tire was barely touching the ground, it dropped right into place.
