A long, long time ago I used to work on the civi side with our nucs. There was some piece of kit, I don't recall what, that was supplied from the US. The parts and special tools catalogue had what was described as an 'adjuster tool', in fact just an Allen wrench, that had a price tag of several hundred dollars. I dread to think what would be charged for a SnapOn torque wrench on a similar scale!

They were expensive because they had to be certified for the Subsafe and Nuclear Program. It was a big deal when one "went missing".

OK, breaker bar is a fail.

I need to tie the rear wheel like Noel recommended in post 1 as even with my brother on the bike, rear wheel on the ground and full brake the bike moves forward while trying the breaker bar. Im just scared that Ill break something such as a rear-set mount trying to tie the rear wheel against the frame with a tie down.

My next plan which I believe is safer is to trailer the bike to a tyre change place as my rear wheel was contaminated with lube trying to get the nut off so I wouldn't risk riding it.

Why would the tyre change place's rattle gun wrench have more oomph than mine?

Saying this is frustrating is an understatement. Seriously disappointed with my bike at the moment.

That all depends on the spec of your equipment.

Another option, as Ed mentioned, is a torque multiplier.

Ok sorted, took it to the MV dealership... Feel totally inadequate as a human being, but at least its sorted!

Yes corrosion. put a good dose of copper paste on the threads on reassembly.

Will be loosening and tightening every 6 months to avoid this crap again.

When using a pneumatic impact wrench the internal bore size of the hose needs to be at least 1/2". Otherwise the air flow to the wrench will be inadequate for it to reach full output. Very often the hose is 1/4" or 5/16" and that is very restrictive.

Wrong.....given a standard 1/4" air line fitting has an ID of 0.187"/4.7mm 1/2" hose will just be in the way
100feet of 3/8" Goodyear hose
1/4" fittings
The size
