If you ride a BMW R1200 this new tool will lighten your load and make it more compact. Made of anodized, CNC machined, 6061-T6 aluminum, the Promach DualTool is 1 1/4 inches in diameter by 1 1/2 inches long and weighs in at only 1.8 oz. The outside tool is for spark plug cap removal, and if you can't get a good enough grip on it, just insert a screwdriver through the hole and you've got a T-handle. This tool can be used on the BMW Oilhead and Hexhead models, from 2005-2016. The hex tool is designed to fit your front axle for wheel removal. It has a 22mm hex that will fit the R1200, K1200S, K1200R, and K1200GT front axles, and has a 19mm hex on the other end for socket or wrench use. You can also help out a friend with an F800 BMW since the 19mm hex will fit that bike. It has a 3/8 inch square drive on each end, designed to fit your ratchet or torque wrench. The front hex tool has been upgraded to 7075-T6 aircraft grade aluminum, which has almost twice the tensile strength of the 1st generation hex tools made from 6061-T6 aluminum. The 1st generation had been tested to 100 ft. pounds with no distortion, which is well over twice the suggested torque for these bikes.
The Dual tool will fit all R1200 bikes, including the new Wet Heads.

Got the dual tool a couple days ago, tried all its applications right away and what a pleasant surprise: it works even better that I expected. Job well done Promach!

Very well made! High quality fit and finish. Compact design, easily carried in my go kit. Shipping prompt. You can't go wrong with this product!!!

I received the set in a timely manner and first inspection was that items had a excellent finish. I tried the axle tool on my RT & GT - fit both perfectly. I next tried removal tool on my RT and it also fit perfectly.
I'll actually use them some time this year for maintenance.

When I switched from my 98 R1100GS to a 2012 R1200GSA, I needed to upgrade the tool kit and as always, less is more. Such a simple concept to nest the axle tool inside the puller, but every little bit helps in reducing bulk when packing. Beautifully machined and works well.

This is a must have for your tool kit. Compact and very well made it matches the quality of the motorcycle it is designed to keep on the road.
It takes up little space but will be a huge help when needed, glad to have one!

Just what I have been waiting to find

Really the tool works great. Now the downside. It is really round and if dropped can roll away a very long distance. Also the black color means that it can be challenging to find after being dropped. Still the bits all work very well and very well made.

Very well made piece. The detail of the O-ring on the inner tool to allow the unit to pack tightly and not fall out is genius. I would highly recommend.

I love this tool, it saves much needed space while providing well made tools to carry with me.
