Exclamation Rear axle nut came off!

I thought I was feeling a wheel bearing failing. When I checked out my axles I found that the nut and rectangular tab under it were both missing. Pretty scary, must not have been for a long time but still.

Anyway, I want to replace it obviously, and I haven't found many places to get the nut (there is a $48 nut on google marketplace which seems to be the best bet) but even harder is to find the rectangular tab that sits between the nut and the swingarm.

Anyone know where I might be able to find one? or better yet a kit with the washer tab and the nut together?

The image I attached is something I found online to show what it's supposed to look like.

Not sure which Strom you have, but Oneida is a good source of parts, usually lower priced than elswhere https://www.oneidasuzuki.com/store/c...acement-parts/

My 04 has a castellated nut and I have a hair clip that keeps it in place.
Originally it had a cotter pin in it.

I would be having a close look at the thread on the axle. Maybe it is wise to replace the entire assembly.
I would also be checking the front axle and probably do a check of the entire bike.

Look on Partzilla. The nut is on the "Rear Wheel" diagram ($13.81) and the plate is on the "Rear Swingarm" one ($3.77)

Make sure you torque that axle nut to spec!! 72.5ft/lbs for my K6.

I noticed I cannot get near that with the tools in the bike's kit as the 24mm wrench is about 4-6 inches long... when I did not torque to spec, the cotter pin kept the nut from spinning off...

Torqued to spec with a new cotter pin is best.
