    Toolkit?

    Hey all,

    I was reading through the manual on my new hawk, and I see to adjust the chain slack I need a special tool that looks like it fits into the chain/back sprocket area or something...Well I don't have the tool kit, does anyone know where I can get one? Or can I use something else, or possibly substitute another bikes toolkit that is readily available on ebay or something???

    Thanks,

    Jason

      1990-something VFR tools will work, according to Abe... Abe? What year was that?

        The tool is called a spanner wrench.Im not sure if generic adjustable spanner wrenches work cause I had the same problem but I just ordered the one that came with the tool kit from my honda delership I think it was about 20$. Dont I repeat dont try the flathead and hammer approach unless you want to severely damage the teeth on the excentric bearing carrier. when you get the wrench you may have trouble getting the carrier to turn(clockwise to tighten counter clock. to loosen) Set the wrench at the tooth closest to 2pm on the clock and let the end of the wrench catch on one of the nuts that hold the sprocket on. you can then bump the rear tire towards you and the carrier will move.

        Note: a little movement goes a long way so if you go to far mirror the wrenches placement and bump in the opposite direction to loosen.

        This is probably clear as mud but I dont have a digital camera so if one of you hawkers has a camera show newbies what Im talking about.

          The only other tool from Honda you really need for normal stuff is get a SuperHawk spark plug socket.It has a wobble bit and makes changing that left front soooo much easier.
