Another must have have life saver tool is.... an impact screwdriver. Hard to find nowadays, but Princess Auto still sales them.


They're readily available on Amazon and eBay and Lowes carries the current Craftsman version.

I don't know about the quality of the new stuff, but I have a Craftsman impact tool that's almost 30 years old. I needed to do a clutch swap on the GPz550 in '92 (maybe '93) and it was a real lifesaver.

I just purchased two Vessel impact screwdrivers from here.  I would avoid Amazon if you don't want something from China.

I have a couple of Z1B's restored, an '80 KZ1000LTD restored, a 1981 KZ550 restored and a 2008 KLR 650 for off road fun. My wife has a 2019 Suzuki DR 650 for on and off road.

The hamade forked screwdriver tool might be to rotate threaded, slotted ring fasteners recessed into a threaded bore. Good Ridin'slmjim & Z1BEBE
