It's for the rear shock, mounts with two 12mm bolts. But other than that I don't know, maybe something else big? Haven't really looked.

You don't need it to change oil at least I know that much.

Correct, and if you have the spark plug tool, the 12 mm allen is used with it to remove the rear cylinder plug.
