I know this has been covered a million times, but maybe I am an idiot. Is the belt tensioner on the left side of the bike standing from behind? Is there any special way or suggestions to loosen, have 36mm socket and breaker bar and cant budge. It is counter clock wise to remove correct. Any suggestions from anyone who has been thrue this would be appreciated. Thank you

If you are trying to loosen up the axle nut there is nothing special to it. It is normally wound in that clockwise is tight, counter-clockwise is loosen.

It is torqued to 150 ft/lbs however so it takes a bit of oomph to loosen it.

Standing in back of the bike, Put a wrench on the left side nut for stability and loosen the nut on the right side using a big breaker bar.
