    Tools walked over the winter and I do not remember what I need to do the 5k service. I know that the T27 but what else? Also what SAE Allen Socket bits for trans dipstick and what ever else?

    Also what size socket for the brake pad pins and calipers.

    TIA,
    John

    Just get a complete set of Torx and Hex Allen "L" shaped sets in both SAE & Metric...easier to buy whole works then picking and choosing...invariably you run into the so called 2.5mm hex zone (if you have a certain set of aftermarket accessories) which will drive you crazy! Only thing more frustrating working on a bike is home plumbing...mainly because one is a work of love, the other...well yech!

    If I'm not mistaken the tranny dipstick is 3/8". +1 on buying the sets.
