8mm socket to remove shrouds, petcock and tank, 10mm socket to remove seat and valve cover, after that a set of fealer guages. Oh yeah, and a 10mm allen so you can check to make sure your at TDC.

A extension and ratchet would be helpful to go with the sockets! :cry:

Actually the 8mm is for achieving TDC and the 10mm is for removing the cover -- but your list is more comprehensive than mine, I would've just told him some feeler gauges. :cry:

Is it absolutly neccissary to find TDC? I checked mine twice, but I dont think it said anything about finding it in the manual, and so I didnt do it. Do I need to go do it again?
