Be certain all stake areas are unstaked. Spray wd40 or better wicking penetrating oil. Let sit an hour. Spray again. Wipe-off from the flats of the nut. Bike in low gear. Stabilize against tip over.

Use a breaker bar and 6-point socket. Better yet a capable impact and impact socket to break it loose. It's tight, and it looks corroded. It's going to take a lot. No need to be gentle. It's brute force.

Roger that, it’s on 08 with a barons 31t pulley and 32mm nut not 36 like i bought. Bike is on track stands front and rear. Used pole from hydraulic pump as a breaker with bike in 1st and someone stomping the back brake. It just huffs and turns over when I give it the beans. I swear the previous owner of this bike was a cave man.

@Turd_fergusson ... You'll want the Full Weight of the bike on solid ground for this task when using an 18"-24" breaker bar or equivalent. This will improve the effective forces to the spindle nut. Also, you'll want to be directing the Forces down toward the floor using a 1/2" drive 6-pt socket. You can also park the bike so that the front tire is against a solid surface too.

Based on your photo it appears that the dimples of the Stake Nut were not relieved and that the nut has loosened approx 30° but I've been wrong before :(

Woof ok yeah I’m going to harbor fright tmrw to get a driver. I’ll try those tips thanks as usual. I did a few PB blast soaks and brass brushing to clean it. I took a small drift and lightly tapped out the 2 spots where it pushes into the 2 notches. Hopefully a good soak over night and an
Impact tmrw should help. Will keep y’all posted. I’m installing a oem billet open cover cover. As always you folks rule 🤙🏽

Also my tool of choice for removing it. But UNSTAKE all the way around that bad boy not just at the stake points. Oh, and don't use a power tool to install. Just put some motor oil on the threads and use a torque wrench and 6-point socket (push downward).

For future, you might look through the Model Year Differences thread. Interesting stuff to know.

Hey,

Had the same trouble and posted the same cry for help! :)

Just had to make sure those dimples were pried out well, gave it a good spritz of Blaster, bought a 30" breaker bar at Harbor Freight, put the full weight of the bike on the ground, ran the gears up to 5th, placed another breaker bar wrapped in a towel between a spoke and the swingarm and....voila!...it broke loose on the first try.

You can always stop by and borrow my electric impact. Its a H.F but I'm sure it will get it off. I probably have the socket too.
