I don't know the name of the socket needed for this damn nut or where to find it. It's the double nut that holds the yoke on the front end.

Is ordering from Yamaha or a dealer my only option?

thanks for your help guys

Just use a flat head and hammer?

Thedub has shown you the correct tool, and I like pseager's suggestion, but I have never found the time when I needed the tool to modify a socket. Plus, a socket that size is usually too expensive for my cheap ass, tight wad butt to sacrifice.

I wouldn't use a flat screwdriver and hammer on it, myself, because it will gall it up. I would use a brass drift punch and hammer, though. It won't harm the alloy nut.

Spanner wrench. They're cheap too.

Your bike tool kit has a large one (to adjust your rear shock)

I didn't get the tool kit with my bike, but yes, the lock ring spanner to adjust the shock preload would probably work just fine on the steering head nuts too.
