Thanks guys!

I know I over-think things but every once in a while I surprise the crap out of someone with a clever bit from my tool bag which makes it all worth while... Like when a buddy dropped a nut in the leaves during repairs from a dirt-nap and started cussing a blue-streak as it was a critical fastener ... the little high-strength magnet I have in my bag found it in no time ....

I try to work only from my bike kit when doing maint/repairs so as to discover what is not in the bag that perhaps should be added (or could be jettisoned ...) I have the F658GS so carry a plugger & compressor but no tire spoons.

I have a 24mm socket for the axle nut, a ratchet head that accepts extensions as it's handle ... with both my 3" and 6" extensions installed and a well-placed booted foot I've removed and reinstalled the nut in a pinch once, but was fishing for better ideas.

If anyone is planning on changing their CS sprockets in the field make sure to do it at home first. Mine took heating, soaking in oil and a lot of swearing. Here is a pic part way off after an hours work... Yes, I could have gone and bought a gear puller ... but I'm cheap.
