Rear Axle Nut Empty

Failed to torque rear nut after tire change. Rode probably 200 miles, some at Freeway speeds. Unable to push into garage, put on center stand, checked rear tire and it wobbled. Checked further to find nut completely missing. Removed wheel & found damage to swing arm & brake assembly. Now off to dealership for repair. Don't fail to torque that nut! Just tightening is insufficient!

As expensive as this lesson will be for you, I hope that you didn't also trash the the splines in the rear wheel. A dealer-supplied wheel is going to put a big dent in your wallet. Thankfully(?) the rear drive shaft splines are much harder to damage. Good luck with the repair. Please let us know 'the damages'.

Sorry to hear about that. Make sure are sitting down when you get the estimate. If you have done your own maintenance you could probably do this repair with the help of a Honda repair manual.
As for leaving the axle nut loose,remember we crucified the perfect man. Howard
p.s. You might be able to purchase a used complete rear axle assemble including the wheel and brake cheaper.

PM me if you need parts. I have a whole swing arm assembly and wheel sitting in the garage. Swing arm came from a bike with 5k on it.
