My axlenuts are real tight, how do you guys get them loose? Nobody in town sells a wrench big enough and would hate to use a pipe wrench and mark it up. Great video btw.

I use a pipe wrench with a really long breaker bar. And if they are really stuck hit it with a torch. These nuts come loose all the time. So people tend to put large amounts of loctite on the threads. I usually coat the whole are with red loctite and then let it sit over night and wrap the whole assembly with electrical tape. Thats the only way i have found to keep it tight. They make locking nuts but i have snapped almost every brand made. But i tend to ride off the rev limiter alot lol. So thats probably my fault.

I was going to do the opposite and anti-seize them back on lol. Their tight now, wouldn't red locktight make them almost impossible to break loose next time?

You want them to not come loose. And red loctite is permanent until heated. Heating with a torch breaks the bond and it will come right off after.

Use thin sheet metal with the pipe wrench so you don't mess up the nut...,
