Got a direct link to the items webpage?Do I really need the Honda, part #07908-ke90100, valve adjust wrench to adjust the valves on my Shadow Aero 750?
Improvisation w tools is something I do alot. Haven't tried adjusting valves yet but I sat if it works without damaging anything go for it.
Oh man Ron, I can't recall off hand. I mic'd the nut once I pulled the valve cover and then just used the Dremel to gently Nick it to shape. I want to say it was 5mm, but don't quote me, haha.That little home made tool is just what I was looking for.
Can you tell me the size of the slot you cut in the wrench, so I can get it done before I tear things down. Thanks
OK Thanks KaBob, and Aced It. I think I this is going to be pretty easy to do. This is going to be a nice afternoon project.Oh man Ron, I can't recall off hand.

I looked back in my thread My Road to Bob and found that it was actually 4mm: Linky to post in thread - http://www.hondashadow.net/forum/72-technical-discussion/110790-my-road-rod-29.html#post1308066OK Thanks KaBob, and Aced It.

Yup tool # 8 is it. I went into my tool bag and I have that #8 tool. I also found the same slot cut into the shock spanner.There's a tool in the factory toolkit that has a slot in the handle that fits the top of the valve! (perfectly).
My bike with the factory toolkit for VT750DCB has it, and I just used it!

Your exact model (taken from the frame lable) should have one too - very reasonably priced too...
It doesnt quite look like the pic in this thread, but sorta similar.
It looks like a small 8mm wrench with a slot in the flat handle that fits over the valve stem....
It comes in handy and fits!
