Be sure to leave the chain and rear wheel/sprocket assembled for the nut removal. Put the bike in gear on a rear stand and block the wheel thru the spokes with a padded brace against the swingarm. If you don't you will most likely just turn over the motor via the countershaft. You may need an impact driver. I did.
Use an impact gun (not driver!), but leave it in neutral. The weight of the rear wheel is more than enough to allow you to loosen the nut and you don't have to worry about messing up the trans with the impact gun
