good info and advice on the tools needed

when the toolkit is not handy

Just make sure it's your own butter knife and not borrowed. They'll bend pretty easily! Don't ask how's I know.  :008:

Going through the bike and making a list of tool as well. Will be posting up my toolkit towards the end of the month. Are there any torx on this bike? I haven't seen any yet.

No torx heads afaik. I don't really see them used extensively on Jap bikes. Even though it would be better for torqueing down stuff.

All is not lost. Apparently Wera got clever with their hex tools and fear of stripping hex bolts is slightly less concerning thanks to the research of this guy. I had bought a Wera hex-plus set years ago and never realized the advantages.
