Be sure to bend back the locking tab. I put a 2X4 through the rear wheel across the swingarm, a heavy foot on the rear brake, and used an electric impact with a 1 1/16" socket on the nut. Spun right off! On install I torqued it to the service manual spec of 92 ft/lbs. I think the 2X4 was unnecessary. I didn't even try to get the nut off without the impact; thanks for the heads up from you guys. It would not surprise me at all to find more than a few over-torqued from the factory.
