Can anybody tell me what the torque spec is for the rear axle nut? I'm cheap and don't have the cash to buy the book, and I just installed a new Warp 9 wheel. Any help would be appreciated.

That's pretty much what I do.. I also drilled a hole in mine for safety wire..
This is a good idea. My Yamaha is drilled, my Honda is not yet. I recently lost my axle nut, I believe my whip mount broke which allowed the axle nut to vibrate off. This cost me $30 because I had to buy new chain adjusters and ended my riding day. A piece of safety wire would have prevented the problem.
