The nut size is Metric 30mm, but a 1 3/16 socket will also work. Please click on the 'Forum Post' link below for further details in the discussion about this issue.
Note also that the Nut and crush washer are supposed to be replaced anytime it is necessary to retorque the nut, according to factory procedure and the service manual.
