Conversion of Mavic Ksyrium Real Whee from Campy to Shimano (Freehub removal)

Hi. Last week I finally decided to buy the Mavic Ksyrium ES wheelset from Nashbar with the happy hour, 10% coupon discount of last week, so my total price including shipping is around $650 (sweet!!!!). I bought the real wheel setup for Campy since it was $125 less than the one for Shimano since understand you can switch the freehub for a Shimano hub (That is what I read somewhere). I found a new shimano freehub from a guy who bought a set of Mavic Cosmic wheels setup for Shimano (Ebay) but needed to do the opposite of my case, so understand will be be able to do the swap.

Any idea what tool will I need to remove the freehub on the Mavic Ksyrium ES? (Once I do the swap the Campy freehub will be for sale, just in case someone is interested). Also, what is the tool to remove the casette? (Need that to remove the cassette from my old wheelset)

You need 2 allen wrenches to remove the freehub. Once the skewer is removed, 1 slides into each side. Make sure you don't lose any pawls once the freehub is removed.

For removing a cassette, it is the usual cassette tool and chainwhip.
