Chester.. welcome aboard!
I also have the '05 model.
For "basic services" there are a few tools..
- a 14mm allen wrench or "driver"...for removing the Gearbox (transmission) drain plug... (I cut a 14mm allen wrench with my dremel tool to make it short enough to reach the plug and put a 14mm wrench to turn it.)
- "torx" / star wrenches to remove the "tupperware" bolts/screws
- 10mm wrench open/closed (combo)
- Phillips screwdriver
All you "need" will be in the tool kit if you have one. If not, I'll take a picture of the tools I carry if that will help.
Clymer usually has a "list" of tools somewhere in the book... perhaps they omitted on this model.
EDIT- some folks are of the mindset that all it takes is a Credit Card to fix the problems.... it saves space in your storage, too.
As for replacing the air and fuel filters, you'll need a big , hugemongous pair of "slip joint" pliers. http://www.northerntool.com/webapp/w...8915_200308915
this is useful in removing the nut holding the fuel pump and filter in the tank... check out the Clymer for this step, you're gonna have fun with it..
oh.. don't forget to gather all the old cooking pans and pots from the kitchen for collecting the "bike blood" (we can't call it "OIL" here)
oh.. keep your computer up and running... try to find someone on this site who lives nearby who has done this sort of insane behavior before... misery loves company... or just post questions here.
I hope you have a place you can get the bike out of the weather, too... you'll appreciate that should your "service" take longer than you plan... and you have to leave bike in a bit of "disarray"...
Check out the "files" area... it's listed on the top of the website... look for "tupperware" file.. there are a couple... download them... they can be quite entertaining.
Oh.. don't forget to plan a celebration afterward!
