Newbie question about rear axle nu

My tire guy just buggered up the 55mm axle nut this morning trying to 'help' me change tires. He's willing to get me a replacement. Are there aftermarket ones avaiable as well? I see there are TPO titanium ones available but no other options beside stock.

thanks

Try forum member CAG, especially if you're in the USA which is a reasonable assumption given you're looking at the TPO option.
Carl may have a spare used one. this will keep the price down for your tyre guy and he will most likely look after you in the future given the titanium ones are more expensive and actually weigh slightly more that the standard ones.
May I suggest that you buy a tapered purpose built socket for next time?

...was at a track day a year ago and managed to get a screw imbedded in the rear...the track guys had a tyre...but no socket to get the rear off....bizarre considering the number of Ducati's running around the track here ???

Many of the problems with damaging the rear nut when removing the wheel are because the recommended torque is very high. There are several threads here on this subject, I never torque the rear nut above 180Nm myself.
