Rear axle bolt socket size

Does anyone know the correct socket size for the rear axle bolt on the x300?

I need to adjust my chain slack tomorrow but I don't have a socket that fits.

Not sure how to measure it and would rather just go buy the socket I need than a whole set.

Just curious. didn't the bike have a small tool kit. One of the sockets should fit. My Versys had a tool kit which can fit the front and rear axle.

Thanks guys. I checked the toolkit under the seat, mine doesn't have any sockets or wrenches that fit... It is a used bike so the previous owner may have swiped it.

I'll get a 27mm deep socket, cheers.

You can also use a 1 1/16" socket...I have old tools. Come to think of it, I am an old tool
