27MM socket and be sure to take a punch or screwdriver and flatten the soft washer/keeper that is behind the nut. You will see what I mean when you get the cover off! Just did it two days ago! Recon

I need an air gun. I used a 32mm socket and grabbed the back piece of the nut.
Do you have an air impact or electric? If electric works, I'm going to be cheap.

The electric one I used wouldn't budge the nut. Ended up using a breaker bar with a four foot cheater.

Same here, air gun did not buldge the nut. I only needed a 25" breaker bar and having a hydrolic lift to keep the bike steady doesn't hurt either.

I used a snap-on cordless 1/2 impact gun and worked great. Are you sure you flattened out the back washer first????? Before trying to remove the nut? Just a question?? Recon

I know I flattened mine out first. I have a new digital torque reader that goes up to 150lb-ft and I tested used it to see how tight the nut was. Well never got a chance to digtal unit bleeped out because I went over the scale limit... yeah that bolt is tight. I am getting ready to take the bolt off today because of some spocket issues but I am curious to see how high the 92lb-ft that I set it at increased will report back later if anyone's interested.

ok, even if no one is interested here it is. After only 20miles or so after tightening to manual specs at 92lb-ft the bolt torque increased to 136lb-ft and was easy to losen with my 25" breaker bar. Imagine how tight it gets after thousands of miles of riding.

Impressive! It's like pick a point on the road twist the throttle and your there. Not like that wasn't there before but now it's even faster. Seems like it would be easy to get into a bad wheely if I am not careful.. thats for sure, and that is with an extra link added and with 40t on rear.
