Any input is appreciated, and as you said hopefully this thread will help someone else with the same problem
Hey, sorry for the late reply, but so far I have not been able to find the right six sided nut for the rear wheel thread, seems kinda unique. But my previously described method - grinding down two sides of the original nut - provides more than enough gripping surface to tighten/release the nut.
I appreciate the reply! Were you able to put the original nuts back on?

Damn where can I get something like this done? Is there a file you can share for a template? And what is the thing with the blue handle that you started with?
It was traced in Illustrator and laser cut by OSH Cut from 0.135" 316 stainless. The blue Park Tools style handle was achieved by putting that end in PlastiDip.

Works well. No idea if the scooter axle nuts are exactly the same size though.

Any chance you could share the file?

Hey, yeah, I was too lazy to look for a shop where they sell the correct size nut! You can check on the pictures here, the original nuts painted with black car paint look quite good!



Also, if the measuring is correct, the right nut size is 12mmx1.00. The most common size is 12x1.50 or 1.20, but this is a more tightly threaded type.

Where did you get the Repair manual from? And if so, is there a 2.5?
The repair manual for what? I just stripped the scooter to the bone and added a new controller, two switches for power and lights, that's it! Later on I'll fit a momentary switch paired with a voltmeter display to get some intel on the remaining battery level.

Thank you! You’ve all been a great help on here once again
Sure thing! Let me know if you need help with your conversion. My best advice is to find it at a local shop that sells not-so-common nuts, too, or get something like this from Aliexpress:
