What is this?

Can someone tell me what this is? It is round, about 1 3/4" diameter, has a notch in it which looks like maybe it is used to turn something, and a serrated edge. I'm going to try and attach a picture, haven't done this before so hope it works.

Smile Antenna Wrench

Thanks, I figured it probably had a purpose but I didn't know what it was. It came with the new 06. Took my first ride on the new one today.... SWEET!!!

Smile Tool Kit - NOT!

By the way, I was amazed to find that all the tool pouch had in it was a few fuses, the helmet cable, and a screwdriver, and maybe the antenna wrench.. don't remember where I found that. Dealer said that was "THE" complete tool kit for an '06. Does that mean I will never have any trouble with it on the road? Wishful thinking, me thinks!

Toolkit

Sad, for a toolkit isn't it. Same thing I received with my 06. Don't know what you are suppose to be able to fix with the tools, I mean screwdriver.

My dealer warned me about the tool kit in the '06 model so he told me to keep the one from my '03 when I traded it in.

Smile Toolkit

I sold my 02 to a private party and the toolkit went with it. Never dreamed the 06 would not have the same thing in it. In my original post I was asking about what turned out to be an antenna wrench. Thanks, BMW, I really needed that. Any crescent wrench in the world would have worked for that.

Heh Don, congrats on the new bike! As far as the tool kit goes, BMW believes you all ready have the proper tool in your possession. Its in your wallet. And, its called a credit card. That's all ya need to get you through! Ride safe!

You don't need a wrench. I keep mine finger tight. That knurled knob works great.

I was plesantly surprized to find a full toolkit in my 2005!
I always add my own favorite tools to the factory tool kit but this time not that many had to be added!
