Socket size for main nut on steering tripple

Bike is an 2004 ZX10r
Looking to buy a socket for the main nut that goes on top the the stearing tripple.
Anybody who can confirm this size for me?
I read manuals that have given me different answers.

Somebody please check the socket size in person. I have to order this socket and want to be sure.

36mm- the one I got is a heavy bastard for CV joints. 6 sided so it does not chew up or round off the nut.

36mm and I use a little blue tape on the nut so as not to mark it up.

Not to highjack, but when you guys tighten this nut do you use locktite? Also if you do use it, do you use less the 58 ft/lbs of torque?
