Honda maybe just figures people won't be randomly doing oil changes, drive chain adjustments, or other routine maintenance by the side of the road. EFI has done away with the possibility of a lot of roadside repairs... it's not like the old days of taking apart a carb to to unplug a pilot jet.

I've never used any of the crappy "made in Bangladesh" tools supplied with Japanese bikes to do maintenance work in the shop... I've got quality tools to use for that. For "on the bike" tool kits, I've always just put together my own sets.

After the oil has mostly drained while on the side stand, hold the bike upright and wiggle it a bit to get the last of the oil out, then proceed...

I have since added enough to do an oil change, and I'll be adding more as I do other routine chores; I've done routine tasks with the tool kit that came with each motorcycle I've owned, adding tools as needed, and it results in a pretty good set of tools to have along if something goes bad on the road . . . .
I'll have to check, but I'm pretty sure I got one of those flat stamped-steel wrenches too.
You know, the kind you get when you buy Danish furniture that you have to assemble yourself? The kind you throw out right after you're done? LOL.

The tool kit with this bike (as with most bikes) is low quality rubbish. You're much better off going out and buying your own decent quality tools.
