Socket for Chain Adjustment

What size is the nut on the center bolt for the rear wheel to adjust the chain on a '07 gixxer 600?
I mearusred it and it looks to be 37mm (1.430"). There is no size stamped on the little tool that came with the bike.
I can't find one at the Craftsman store and the local Matco man at one of our shops didn't have it either.
If this is size, where can I get one in 1/2" drive?


I hate not torquing that nut...
