    I bought the bike new for my wife and there was no spanner in the kit... It is not included in the part listing for us sold bikes either

    Yes, I saw the US toolset, and it looks a bit small compare to the EU one. Bad news to you, sorry. I don't know why so much tools missing in the US set.

    I finally got some news from mother Honda.... After a week of research they gave me the following part number for the spanner to adjust the rear preload. 89201-KA4-811

    Well I ordered the part that mother Honda said I needed to adjust the preload on my wife's DN01.... Took it home and out of the pkg and tried to use it and it slips right off, still the wrong one. Dealer will not take it back as it is a tool that is out of the package so I am out 30.00 and no closer to adjusting the rear suspension.

    I called Honda back and all I got was we will talk to our engineers......

    I must say, there is 2! spanners in EU OEM kit and they both fit, but I think they need to be used in different preload positions. If you wish, I can take a photos of them.

    That would be great as Mother Honda has no clue what it to be used....

    Could you take a photo next to a ruler to show the size? I would prefer to buy a $7 generic if I can get the size right.

    Thanks.

    Thanks!
    Now I have to figure out if the Bikemaster generic is close enough.
