new 2017 model rear axle nut size

Hi
Does anyone know what size socket fits the new 2017 rear axle nut?
Need to adjust the chain slack for the first time & I've just found I don't have a socket big enough in my set.
Strange that it's a bigger nut than the previous fireblade model!
Thanks!

Re: new 2017 model rear axle nut size

Thanks Spagiratwink, I didn't even know about Fowlers until your reply - their database is pretty comprehensive!

I can see that they say it's a 24mm but I've got a 24mm socket but the nuts even bigger than a 32mm!

Could it be a mistake? Still at a loss but grateful for your help

Perfect!
Would have worried over this for days. Ordering a flat size 36mm now.
Thanks so much for your help & trouble!
