Default rear axle nut

The torque spec is 60 ftlbs. Which is where i put it. However I have yet to be able to loosen this bolt with just a ratchet. I always have to use a cheater bar. I bent my ktm multi fit tool trying to loosen it with that. A test to see how it might work trail side. I've got a motion pro axle nut wrench/tire iron tool now but I'm going to have to grind it down to fit. I'm figuring I'll have to stand on it to loosen the bolt. Do you guys run the axle nut at 60 ftlbs?? What do you use to loosen it trail side. My drz was 40 ft lbs and used a castle nut so trail side repair wasn't an issue.

Use your trail wrench to tighten it. Then you'll know you can loosen it with the same tool
(in theory ). I'm sure it'll be tight enough.
Those KTM multi-tools are sweet. My buddy turned his into a pretzel tonight trying to loosen his rear axle nut to adjust his chain tension.
