axle nut

I find that my axle nut is really hard to turn. I dread the day I need to replace wheel bearings. Anybody have trouble with that nyloc nut? Should I be using something on the threads? Replace nut?:p

edit - I should probably mention: '94 XR650L

i would use some p b blaster and take it off and put anti/never seize on the threads and return the nut.

need to take that out and clean it off, i use grease on my axles every time i take off, best to use a good waterproof wheel bearing type like i use on my air filters. Dont wait for it to get worse do it now

Rats! The threads are fubar. :p Mystery solved.
