I have a 2006 trx500fe and I went riding last weekend and then I noticed the right rear axle nut came loose with a cotter pin in it and I know they were torqued down. How can this happen?

I bought it used and it was missing that axle nut when I bought it. I tried blue loctite on it this time. I will keep an eye on it. Thanks
Also looks like someone put a new hub on the left side
Not sure what happened but yes. It’s 101 foot pounds of torque
Well I took all the advice and pulled the axle out to find the left axle spacer was missing. I suspect this led to the axle to be to far left and wore out the hubs. Axle splines do look to be in good shape.
