I found a source for these 12 point sockets in Portland, OR at Hall Tool. They weren't cheap, but are professional quality. I actually have 6, along with the allen wrenches, awaiting the window cutout. I have 6 3/16" x 6" long drill bits as well. Work has been too crazy, so I've had little time to continue with this project.
We've also found a source for the M24 x 1.25 taps that may be needed if the last mechanic used excessive loctite on the swingarm. We've been lucky with several swingarm removals, but did have one situation that would have required a whole new swingarm had the local dealer not been kind enough to retap it for us.
The cost for the socket and allen wrench was around $25-$35 (I don't have the receipt handy), and the taps cost $50-$70, depending on how many you order. I know some people who can cut the windows in, but don't have a cost for that yet.
If we can get a rough show of hands of folks who would be interested in getting such a kit, then maybe I can pick this project up and get an exact cost for folks. The tap isn't strictly necessary, but I'd sure hate to have the bike all torn down and then find out that you do need it.
Just respond to this thread and we'll see how much interest is there.
