Default need some help, please rear axle nut

Hello, I can't seem to find the size of the rear axle nut in the manual. I assume that it's metric but not sure and I want to go buy a socket for it. Can someone tell me what size the nut is for the rear axle nut? 2012 Cross countryThanks,LongRIder

Yes, 1 1/16" or 27mm, you can get a wrench in there from the bottom at the back without taking the bag off, but its almost easier to take the bag off.

If you plan on torqueing it down then you will need the 27mm crowsfoot and adjust your lb's for the extra length. It is 57 lbs for my torque wrench and crows foot (the being if my torque wrench is still accurate).

I do plan on torquing the nut to the proper setting. If I buy the crowsfoot, is there a formular to figure out what to set the wrench at to get to the 65 ft lbs? Also, does anyone if a fastener listing is available for these bikes? I noticed that the manual does not do a good job of identifyting fastener sizes.
thanks,
LongRIder

The question is, will a torque wrench still measure accurately if a cheater bar is used on the end? The answer is yes. All this configuration will do is increase the force on the end of the torque wrench. The torque measured by the wrench doesn't care if there is a hand pressing down on the wrench or if a cheater-bar is supplying the force.

There are several places on the web that will provide a calculator, here is one.

No problem. If you are adjusting your belt just a warning that when you torque the bolt down it will probably affect the position of the belt on the sprocket. I ended up getting the belt all the way to the left side then a few runs of torque down nut and spin tire then lossen bolt and mess with adjuster nut till I got the belt where it would not run on one side of the sprocket.
