Anyone know what size the nut on the axel is on an '05? Is it a 32mm? I need to adjust the slack in my chain and don't want to buy the wrong size socket.

oh and don't use the axle nut alighment notches in the swing arm, they suck and are way off. use a ruler or piece of string to get more accurate alignment
