Get a breaker bar and the correct socket. More elbow grease. It's the easiest way. BTW, 94 ft/lbs is not a little amount. That nut is really on there.

Thanks for your help guys.
I did finally get it off. I had to wrap the wrench handle in a towl and then I jumped on the wrench handle. I know, a little unconventional but whatever works, right!

The swingarm marks are notoriously inaccurate and the rear wheel can come misaligned. To properly check wheel alignment, use the more accurate string or straightedge methods. For more on either method, push the search button.

My chain is way to loose. I can't seem to get the rear axle nut loose though. It says its on by only 94 ft lbs of torque. I am using a 12" adjustable wrench. I am putting so much effort into it I'm actually lifting the whole rear end of the bike up in the air even while pushing down on the rear to keep it down! I even put wd40 on it to help soften it up, But still won't budge. And yes I took out the cotter pin!
What can I do to get that sucker off???? Please HELP ASAP!!!

Also one more quick question. I just looked at the notch on the left side of the bike is lined up directly below the second mark on the swingarm. but the notch on the right side of the bike is lined up to almost the 3rd mark on the swingarm. This is how it was alligned STOCK. I know they should be alligned on the same notch or else the wheel alignment is out of wack, but this is how it came stock. You think it was not 100% properly alligned from the manufacture? Or is only 3/4 or a mark off not too bad?
