Ok, I haven't seen many with those chrome fender guards - had wondered if it was an after market thing added by the po, but it came with it from Honda - nice extra touch.

I was wondering why one was shorter than the rest, that explains it. Yep, po was meticulous about his bikes. He has a 97 Road Star that looked just a brand-new as this x I bought off of him.

the 3 indicates the 3nd version of the model the exact difference the dealer will have to look up if I was still with Honda I could tell you some are only paint color or C fenders on a R chassis my 1800 C3 is a special flame decal and a scope on the radiator

My 03 1800C came with the wrench, but my brother's 06 1300C did not.(bought new) So I would think yours came with it, unless the previous owner left it out. Regardless, it can be done by hand. (not to be confused with "doing it" by hand)LOL

Thats what I do. A few years ago working for a local hotel we changed all the urinals and toilets over to the auto-flush style. There was a strap wrench with each kit and I snagged a couple after we were done changing things out. They work good!

If you have a motorcycle lift you don't need any tool (a.k.a. spanner tool)... I lifted the weight of my bike and turned them by hand no problem.
