yea, that axle nut has never been off in all likelyhood.. now that you have rear tire off, remove the rear drive unit from swing arm and inspect/grease the splines where the drive shaft and final drive meet!
That's how I read it too. New tire is on today. Got a 170/80 me888 on there. I cleaned the axle threads and put some never sieze on it. Also lubed the splines. Thankfulky they were lubed at the factory. Took the bike out for a cruise, can't believe how good the oem suspension is. I've got some pretty rough roads near me I have avoided on previous bikes but the suspension soaked the bumps right up [emoji1360]
