I think he's talking about removing the nut on the rear axle, so that the sprocket/chain can be replaced.

Correct tools are overrated.

Take that off with a 18" pipe wrench and call it done.

Well, you have to remove the axle to remove the rear wheel to put in the stretch blocks...

I can't speak for his specific bike, but most of mine have required something along the lines of 21 - 27 mm sockets to hold the axle side and the nut... not nearly as large as the swing arm nut or steering stem nut, but still larger than the standard off-the-shelf 12 piece 3/8" socket set goes.

Can't remember 32mm or 36mm. It's a 3.00 socket from the auto parts store

36mm on Suzuki, it's easy if your mechanically inclined. My bike still handled well on extensions

well, since nobody has brought this up yet i dont know for certain because its not my bag but they make two different swing-arm styles:

swingarm-extensions (which bolt to your existing swingarms)
and
modified extended swingarms

you "want" an aftermarket extended swingarm, because the extensions are usually bolted together and tend to sag or altogether break leaving you flying...cuz...y'know...guys who like extended swing-arms are also guys who like to do high-speed freeway wheelies.

at any rate, the most secure bet would be the aftermarket extended swingarm.
