Clutch Hub Nut

Is there an electric one that can handle it, or do I need to get a freakin compressor?

i'm still surprised 6th gear would have more resistance than 1st gear?

It's all about leverage against the rear wheel. You are trying to spin the rear wheel faster which means you have less leverage. It's also the same reason a worn out clutch will start slipping in top gear first.

Could this damage the gearing if not done properly? I went with the clutch gear holder tool route. More importantly, I've heard of that center nut coming loose after 5k miles. I know it says to torque at 200nm (which is about 160lbs) without locktite. But, we went ahead and put a thin layer of locktite just to be sure.

I don't think it's likely that you could damage the gearbox. If 170hp second gear wheelies don't break anything I doubt my 220lb fat butt hanging on a breaker bar is going to.
During install I used a torque wrench and it was pretty simple. No problems getting to the correct torque, that should do the trick unless Ducati screwed up on their spec.

I got serious and cleaned the hell out of the threads on the shaft one thread peak at a time with a razor blade cutting the old thread locker of a little at a time. Eventually I got it cleaned enough to install another nut without buggering it up. Something like $120.00 for two nuts.
The 2008 swap was much easier after having gone through the first one. I cleaned the threads the same way thread at a time and the new nut went on just fine. I tried it as I cleaned the shaft threads and if I felt it hang up I continued to clean until it went all the way smoothly.
I used Red Loctite to reassemble and so far so good.
