The nut and washer are completely removed. The hammering I've done so far doesn't seem to have had any effect on the thread on the axle.

I believe he got that point, but that is EXACTLY why several have posted the thread saving methods they have pointed out. Having to buy a new axle because you beat the threads into a mushroom and can't reinstall the nut/washer gets expensive.

Also, look at what TurboBlew posted on the use of transmission fluid. That stuff is slippery as heck.

Re: How to remove stuck rear axle (07 R6)

you have to keep working it in and out using penetrating oil. believe me it can take a while sometimes. I had to get one out of a yamaha dirtbike that must have sat under water. but sometimes you may have to buy an axle. but they're not expensive. I thread the nut on flush with the end of the axle and hit it with a 3lb sledge hammer. sometimes you gotta do it. since it's hollow you can try heat inside of it with a propane torch

Last time I helped someone that left the spacer out we ended up having to cut it out.

Re: How to remove stuck rear axle (07 R6)

you may be able to rent a slide hammer with a internal grip jaws. that's how bearings are removed. in fact i never looked but the r6 axle may have a groove inside of it for this purpose.
