Rear Axle Nut Size '15 RG

Good morning all!

First - how I could tell it was time to tighten the secondary belt/Drive belt. I recently upgraded my cams on my '15 RGS with 551 S & S. Great improvement between 2K and 4K... nothing above that.

Sorry I digress...

Anything over 4K under hard acceleration I would get a strong vibration... like you couldn't see the gauges anymore. Maybe the cams were off or something major is about to come flying through my leg??? Nope, the belt was 1/2" out of adjustment! I know...I know but my gauge for $18 from eBay just came in!

Anyways I thought at my age I had just about every tool I could need. Come to find out my largest socket, 1 1/4" was too small so I have to use a giant adjustable and an assistant.

I see other posts for earlier models but was unsure if it the same size. I couldn't find my Caliper to measure mine (thanks kids!).

I'm thinking on mine it was 1 3/8 or 36 mm. Could be wrong, its been a while.

2010 FLTRX , Stage 1, 13" Madstad, Mono tubes, SuperShox, Heritage style bars. Alpine CDE-HD149BT,Soundstream Picasso Nano Series PN4.520 , 5X7 and 6.5 Infinity Kappa speakers
If I have to explain ,you wouldn't under stand anyway.
