1200GS/RT Front Axel Tool and Spark Plug Cap Tool Combination

This is a great tool for the traveling R1200 rider. It's a hex tool for the front wheel and a spark plug cap removal tool. The 19mm end of the hex tool also fits the oil cap, so that would be one less tool to carry. These tools fit together with an o-ring around the hex tool, to give it a friction fit inside of the spark plug tool. It's 1.5" long and 1.25" in diameter, and only weighs 1.8 ounces. The hex tool has been tested to 100 ft. lbs of tourqe, with no distortion. This is over twice the amount of tourqe needed for the R1200 wheel. Oh.... by the way, I'm a die hard GS man, but this works just as well on any of the R1200's.

Timing is everything in the life of a BMW owner. In the last few months I purchased both front axle tool and spark plug tool. How much?

P S. Great idea as a combo tool

The Promach tool packs up quite small for traveling and also a good shop tool. Combine it with the tamper resistant oil cap and it is a sweet package.
