Well, I didn't even get an original toolkit with my purchased from new  :xxbah: so i have just found out today,

Will order a Honda specific one this week

Let your dealer know and they will provide you one.  I may still have the extra one I got when I bought mine.  If you don't come right, give me a PM and I'll see if I can find it and then you can have it.

Its a waste of time. There is nothing in it you can use, plus if you fit Rockfox Crashbars you have to remove it anyway

Agreed., the standard little kit means nothing. Mine is under the seat but might as well leave it at home. I have the bike specific kit from Desert Fox that works really well

Question: does one need a hex male socket for the front axle, or do you only need to loosen the nut on the left plus the 4 pinch bolts to be able to remove the front axle? And do you have to remove the calipers or does it just make it easier to put the wheel back?

22 mm for axle nut
12mm vir pinch bolts en jy moet een caliper afhaal (14mm) as jy nie die gat kan afdruk nie.

Meeste haal op die 800GS ook 'n caliper af. Ek FLEX net die modderskerm oop om die band en rim tussen die calipers deurt te laat gly. Op die 800 is die calipers 80mm uitmekaar en die Mitas is 90mm breed.  Miskien kan dit op die Honda ook werk.
