What is it?

I admit it, I am a tool slut. If I see a hand tool I think I may need sometime in my life I will buy it.
So I was cleaning out my tool box the other day and came across this. I assume I bought it but for the life of me I don't know when or why. The only thing I know for sure is that it is for a bike, car or aircraft and not a boat.
So I'm calling on the group expertise to help me identify what it is and what it does.
It's a 10" long steel rod bent 90 degrees at the 4" mark with a 3/4" nut attached (braized?) on the end.

Muffler bearing adjustment tool.

The bearing threads onto the tool but you need the right angle access.

If had not seen the threads would have guessed a old points type car motor tool to move Dis..when tuning.What ever it looks like a good one! Must be a hold for a nut while you adjust a stud IMO.

Nope doesn't have the hydraulic actuator coupling.

For use with another nut as a stud extractor/installer was my first thought, but it seems like a lot of work to replace a nut and wrench. Do you braze? Is it something you could have made?

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s
See https://www.stromtrooper.com/general-...nicknames.html

Mystery solved by Mellow on the ST1300 list. It's the handle for a progressive shock compression tool. I had the handle in my everyday tool box and the rest in my tool chest. Shows how much I used it. I think I got it around 2005 when we were changing the springs on a 1998 VFR.
Thanks Mellow
