Make sure it's clockwise to remove. Yeah it's tight.

Its left thread so turn clockwise to undo (loosen the wheel) and for tightening turn counterclocwise. Torque properly when reinstalled !!!

Long 4 foot breaker bar. Make sure socket is on flat. Long pipe on the wrench. Don't knock the bike over.

I use a round torx key to jam / lock the rear rotor in place.

Best to loosen the nut with the bike on it's sidestand, single-sided swingarm a bit precarious to be using a breaker bar with. AND it is VERY TIGHT!

I'm not sure how else to break that wheel nut loose safely without a breaker bar. Besides taking it off is the same if yo are on the side stand or rear stand. (you are lifting the bike up) I would say to use the side stand when putting the wheel nut back on (counter clockwise). - You could bend the factory rear stand.

If you can take the bike to your local tire shop bring your tool (for the wheel nut with You) let them us the impact wrench. I only use air impact wrench for removal and tightening . Requires air compresor obviously. If you have one in your garage , get yourself the impact wrench at any auto parts store or home depot or Lows.
