I have replaced my swingarm’s right side specialty nut with a nylock. Finding a 17mm socket will be much easier than a spline tool that is required to properly remove that fastener.

The spline nut that comes as OEM for the swingarm.
The spline socket that removes the swingarm nut. The tool can be purchased here.
I replaced mine with a nylock nut. Murphy’s Law says that ‘if’ I was out somewhere the shop would not have the spline tool. But everyone has a 17mm socket!

BTW the nut is a M10 1.0 pitch. How did I know that? Well I bought a thread checker. You can find it in the Gear I Use section under Other Stuff.
