I noticed that my chain is a bit tight so I need to adjust my rear wheel forward a bit. I also noticed that I don't have a wrench/socket big enough to fit that large rear nut holding the wheen in place. Since I need to get one (and I want to make sure I get the right one) what size is that rear nut? This is on my '03 YZ450F. Thanks.

I believe on my 426 that it is a 28mm don't know if its the same for the 450, when i went looking for a socket i bought a Stanley 6 pack of metrics from Walmart for 12bucks.
