Default Re: Rear Axle Keys

The key is basically just a hub locator. If the axle nut is tightened properly, you could remove the key and throw it away and keep going. The fit of the hub on the tapered axle is that good. If the nut is not tight enough, the hub will fret on the axle and bad things will happen!
