If you dont know this already? You can pick up a "CRV" 4mm to 12mm hex, torx, & spline in 30mm & 50mm long tool kit for around $10 delivered, & combine the short 30mm long, 6mm hex bit with a 10mm ratchet spanner & you'll have access to every fork clamp bolt without pulling anything off, except to drop off the front wheel, on the R6 to do so. At worse you may have to lose a leaver clamp a couple of degrees. Photos show tool kit & free access~

Got any better descriptions of that tool kit? That kit doesn’t show up in any searches. Most are sockets, or have a 1/4” (6mm) shank size, not the 10mm one you have.

Torque spec for them bolts is really really low. I'd like to be able to fit a torque wrench down there. Don't think I can...

Look Online for metric hex, torx kits, & these will pop up on the listings. As i know you guys grew up on imperial, where me on metric, where I forget these terms do trip up some, which isn't intentional. But don't you US service guys get tought metric? Also that sweet, & sometimes scare the crap of ya R6, comes from the land of metric.

If Ya ya don't trust ya feel for torque'n it in the M6 fork clamps?, Ya can use a 10mm crow foot spanner where with limited space? The 1/4" torque wrench is the go for that job. Photo shows a crow foot spanner, where this 10mm crow foot is a 3/8" drive, but you get the idea of one in 1/4" drive for the smallest torque wrench that will have good clearance to spec torque em all up!

Apparently this particular set isn’t available on this side of the planet. As I said, I can find hex bits that are sockets, or are for a 1/4” hex drive, but I can’t seem to find the 10mm hex drive that you have there. Bummer. That’s what I really like about the kit you have.

"MATE"? I didn't realise, in the land of the brave & the free, your online listings seem to hold off a lot on metric tool set's? With your reply's hinting this towards me. Sorry "Lad's", i didn't realise metric kit's acess is as hard to get, as get'n in to your skull & bones club? But they still do have a tiny bit of imperial in em! As the kit come's with 3/8" & 1/2" drive socket adaptors.

Yeah, metric kits aren’t hard to come by. It’s the 10mm shank that’s not common. I’m jealous. That’d be handy.

Let's not start the SAE is better then metric debate. Searches are regional as far as vendor shipping to country lists, etc. Or could be that 1/4(6.3MM) is the most common bit hex here. 5/16 is used for impact driver hardened bits of phillips and standard (slot) heads. I have never seen 10MM drive in my life of tool purchase and use/ exploring friends specialized tools.

Just looked again and nothing 10MM to be found.
