What type and size tool do I need to remove the two screws on the underside of the top triple clamp that hold on the starter key assembly, and where can I pick one up? They look like torx but they also have a stem in the middle, I would assume as a theft deterrent? I need to remove in order to change out my top triple clamp, thanks!

I'm pointing at it with a screwdriver in the photo:

Security Torx.

I can't give the size as I no longer have a Strom to check.

You'll find a kit in Harbor Freight - that's where I got mine on a visit to the US.

Also known in the trade as a tamper proof torx! Go figure... make it tamperproof and someone will sell the tool to fit it, not tamperproof anymore!!!!:thumbup:

My thoughts exactly. :confused:

I picked up a "Craftsman 33-Piece Screwdriver Tamper-Proof Bit Set" for about $25 a few years ago. It covers most of my tamper proof needs. :mrgreen:

Torx and especially tamper torx are not a very common set to have in your toolbox, so they are more tamper resistant than most. :)

The other two security Torx screws are on the TPS and STPS so make sure any set you get includes the T20 and T25.
