Steering stem bearing socket

Where can I get a socket for the steering stem bearing at? I want to check torgue now and this winter I plan to change to the tapered bearing, so will use it a couple times.

I have his socket for my vn1700 and one for my Yamaha, they are great quality. Takes about 2 weeks to ship from England.

I bought two 36 mm sockets from O'Reily's. One regular to take the top nut off and one an axle socket. I used my drimel to cut down the axle socket to fit the bearing nut. Since it was deeper than a normal socket, I didn't even need to remove any material from the inside. $20 at O'Reily's. A cheaper, regular socket would do, but you would have to remove material from the inside for it to fit over the stem.
