Douglas, Not much help but the only external torx socket I have is an E-10 and it is at least one size to small.

If I'm doing a tough or stuck nut / bolt, I find a 6 pt socket gets a better grasp than a 12 pt.

I do also.....
 :-X
But when I remove a bolt with a Torx head.... I use the proper tool, also.... :rotflmao:

It helps to read the responses given above... :rotflmao:

That is, if it is a Torx head... I dunno personally, never split my calipers... :truce:

I think it's E-12 also, but don't have to socket to check.
If it helps you at all; I do have a 3/8"  {8 Pt socket} and it's close, but a tiny bit loose..

Woo hoo,, sounds like an excuse for a another trip to Harbor Freight...   >:D

Ride safe, Ted
