Rear is 22mm to hold the axle and 24mm to turn the nut.

27 mm socket required."

However, this is an old thread and I am uncertain if the thread has changed for later models, although I think not. There is more info here: https://www.vstrom.info/Smf/index.php?topic=3508.0

My 2014 1000 has a 36mm rear axle nut.

Had to go to an auto parts store for the socket SAE 1 7/16 half height to fit in my tool bag!

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. 1 Cor 13:13

No. Check what forum you are posting in!

On the 2nd gen 1000, it's a 36mm and there's no axle hex, just a nut. The axle is "captive" with flat cuts against the chain adjuster to keep it from spinning. There hasn't been a hex axle, castle nut, and cotter pin involved for a while now.
