I was asking svannie if he had a 26 mm socket to confirm its fit on the nut, because he used a 27 mm, and the 1-16" (26.9875 mm) socket is a bit slack on it. A 12 point 1-1/16" socket can tend to slip and eat at the nut's edges... A 1-1/2" X 2-7/8" length of wood across the swingarm, and an extension pipe on 1/2" drive breaker bar worked fine for me, but it has to be well padded to protect the swingarm's thin aluminum wall and paint. That's why I really like svannie's simple and highly effective sprocket lock.
