I so agree... think I worked with those same guys years back! The impact is great for removing and lightly zipping down the fastener. I always do the final tightening with a torque wrench. That same King-Kong also likes to install spin-on oil filters ;)
I did a few of those oil filters when I was young. After I destroyed a couple filters getting them back off, and cutting my hand on one of those, I learned how to do the job properly. :)

Really, it's hard to get loose the nut to remove the rim and tire?
I have been applying dw-40 for 2 days and trying to loosen the nut without success, I already tried using an extension to have more strength and nothing and I don't want to use more torque not to cause damage to the nut or something else.

Any advise?

Try gently tighten bolt, often breaks corrosion bond

I always have the bikes weight all the way down like with a car. Break the nut loose with the torque wrench then jack it up and finish removing it. Are you certain thwir is not a counter spin nut on the other side? I though the shadows had a smaller size on one side so you can hold one side and turn the other. I have done my 02 Honda Shadow Spirit vt750dc rear tire twice without too much trouble using a torque wrench and a socket.

I messaged ShadowTJ... he got it off! Here's his comments:
"Finally had the time last night to remove the nut.
I used the impact gun and hex soquet with an extension on the other side and the nut came out intact.
The previous owner used brute force that almost weld it.
I am happy that I was not forced to do extra task and don't expend more $$$ that the necessary
."

No, '87 and up Shadows are left sided shaft drive.
