86 1200I: Stuck rear axle nut
All:

I need some suggestions. I am taking off my rear wheel to replace the tire and have run into an axle nut that isn't coming off. I replaced a rear tire over a year ago and don't remember this nut being a problem.

The manual shows a socket being used to remove the nut, the nut on my axle is half round with two flat areas opposite one another. Because of this the flat will only allow an open 17mm wrench to be used. The nut is on so tight that it is starting to round, or it would round if I continue the same procedure.

Got any ideas? Also are some axle nuts a regular shaped nut without round areas?

Thanks in advance, I need to get this taken care of immediately if not sooner.

best,
DC
