axle nut

Does anybody know what size the rear axle nut is? I looked through the manual quickly but i had to leave for work and couldnt find the size. I got my tires mounted on the new rims i got and was planning on doing the wheel swap this weekend and wanted to make sure i had the right wrench for the axle nut. Thanks

Between the 2 of us Dale, we might have what it takes to remove both wheels

just replace my back wheel and tire i used a 1 7/16 socket.A 36 mm is probably the correct size, 1 7/16 measures 1.4375,a 36 mm measures 1.4173

2012 RG Vivid Black,contrast Anarchy wheels,SE air cleaner,cobra tuner,Thunderheader ,diamond cut heads and clys,Fueling Reaper 574 cams,this is just a starting point.
