Anyone who can lend 27mm 6 point socket

Anyone willing to lend 27mm 6 point socket. I wanted to get my hands dirty and adjust the chain slack on my fz09 before a ride this weekend but somehow can't find the socket in store nearby?

Located in Sunnyvale

If your 9 is like my 8, the factory tool kit under the rear seat has a wrench thing that fits the rear axle nut.

Why not just use a big crescent wrench on it?

That has always worked just fine for me on axle bolts.

Lowe's has metric sockets. That's where I got the 30 mm that I needed for the steering stem of my XR650L. Couldn't budge that one with a crescent wrench.

Harbor Freight - you can get a full set of impact metric six pointers for around $10-12, iirc.

Found the socket at Lowe's but one of the nut is too tight and the wrench slips. Scratched some surfaces while trying to unsuccessfully loosen it.
Will take the bike to mechanic on Monday
