Following on from my recent post where I had to buy a second-hand OEM toolkit…
Looking at the parts list it looks fairly empty, but I’m hoping the C-spanner is all I’ll need to adjust the rear suspension?
Should I seek out any other tools or is that the most useful item in the OEM toolkit?

@Bevo thankfully pointed out I would need a HW6 hex-bit to suit..
You'll need a HW6 hex bit to loosen the bearing holder pinch-bolts to adjust chain slack.
So I thought I’d post this thread to see what tools you’d recommend both carrying with the bike and having available at home.

I’ve got a 150 piece socket set, a torque wrench, breaker bar and the usual screwdrivers indoors. For the bike I guess the addition of some tyre plugs and NO2 canisters would help get me out of a bind..

What are you guys carrying with your NSC’s?

Hi Dolph! This is the toolkit page from the OEM parts book for the VFR800: 2015 Honda VFR800FD 2AC TOOLS | Honda Sport Parts Warehouse The C-spanner for chain adjustment are ref# 7 and 12. I can verify this tool will fit and work on the CB1000R, as I have both the VFR and NSC in my stable. You should be able to take those part numbers to a UK distributor and purchase them.

I read on a forum, whether it was here or on the VFR forum that there is an aftermarket, better quality adjustment tool available, but I haven't spent any time searching for one.

Hey @3rdBike thanks for replying. I’ve already got that C-spanner - as I said in my original post I had to go and buy a second-hand kit but luckily that was included:


it’s just any missing or non-OEM parts that I’m curious to hear about

If you ever intend to change the spark plugs yourself, don't make my mistake and do it without the proper Honda plug spanner. To get to plugs 2 &3 is a pain where you have to dismantle a few parts. In the end before I bought the proper spanner, I had to make up something to get to those 2 middle cylinder plugs. Should have bought the Honda spanner first. Way back in the 70s you always got a plug spanner with the bikes tool kit, not anymore!

Could you link to the part you're referring to? So when the time comes I'll be ready
