Question Knowledge test - What motorcycle tool is this?

THE ANSWER for those that played already is post 18 on the 2nd page. https://www.rc51forums.com/forums/sho...2&postcount=18

A new ongoing thread if you wish. To start with, do you know what this simple tool is? A poll here will take your answer, yes or no. Do not give it away in your reply yet. I'll post what tool it is in the next few days. I'm interested to see what the current knowledge state is. And we can all learn from each other. Don't worry about not knowing. We all have a lot to learn...

And separately I will begin a useful tool thread thread shortly for bikes.

It can definitely be used for our bikes, so you may not know what it is. I won't say what it is for a few more days...

My new to me 2004 RC51 is now 9 years old. It doesn't "need" this tool, but I know it will make a significant difference.

Okay, some of the most posted members and knowledgeable members appear to know this tool immediately. . Keep it coming, and don't be afraid to post not knowing. It took me many years.

My guess is on the modern 600 and 1000 forums the "luke skywalker's" would hugely dominate immediately. Lot's of yoda's with the RC51
