Anyone have any tips on how to get the nut loose without a air wrench? thanks

Put it in gear and stand on the back brake. If that doesn't work stick a long screwdriver (or something else that will fit) thru your rear sprocket and let it jam against the swingarm....do this before you take the chain off :thumbsup:
While doing the above, I've used a socket with my snap-on 3/8' breaker bar (about 16" long) on the nut and haven't had a problem.
