You'll need a 12mm Hex (allenhead) wrench to remove the front axle when the time comes for a new front tire........that particular hex wrench is NOT included in your vstrom toolkit. They are not expensive.......
Lots of screws (bolts) on the Vstrom are JIS (Jap Std) screws.......which look identical to Phillipsheads. Some members have stripped the screw slots using regular phillipshead screwdrivers (chain guard comes to mind). Just be cautious when removing these type screws.......
(make plans NOW if you have never attended....GREAT Event!!!)
