Hey guys just picked up a free bmx , and I’m fixing it up for my son . I went to take the pedals off and noticed that it requires a 5/8” wrench . My pedal wrench is 9/16” and I can’t find a 5/8” one . I called the local bike shop and they didn’t know , nor do they sell a 5/8” wrench . Has anyone encountered this before ? I’ve never seen it on all the bmx bikes I had as a kid etc . I know I can just use a regular 5/8 “wrench but was interested . Googled it and can’t even find a 5/8 pedal wrench or any info on it . I see a 1/2” and 9/16” ... that’s it . Thanks

Get a 15mm pedal wrench should work out

Hey I have a pedal wrench , one end is 9/16” and the other end is metric 15mm . It don’t fit . I used a 5/8” normal wrench and it fits . I have never seen a bmx with a 5/8” pedal 🤷‍♂️ . it’s not a big deal , it’s just that I’ve bever seen that before , nor has the local bike shop . I guess the better question is how do I order pedals when they all

Sorry got cut off there , I meant to say how do I order pedals when I’ve never seen a 5/8 one ? I would use these but there cracked . And yes I know my wrench sizes as I’m a mechanic . I don’t know much about bmx bikes as it’s been years since I owned one . Very puzzling

Even if the wrench size is different, the thread size should be standard.

Correct.

They will either be 1/2 inch (if the bike has one piece cranks:



OR 9/16ths if 3 piece cranks:
