BJ4 owners:

Squeezing a standard sized allen-wrench seems to be one of the drawbacks to maintenance, so I am wondering if anyone has had success in cutting down an allen-wrench's short side to facilitate removal of the motor mount screws? If so, what did you use to cut down the wrench?

I think you need to get a good quality set of Hex Drivers...I like the Dynamite ones. At $15 for 5 it's a great investment. The spinny handle end works great to. There are more options out there then the one in the link but you get the idea.

Get a long ball end driver, then you can get at it at an angle.

I use both the ball driver but also yes, I have a cut down allen wrench to do the final torque down, or torque break.

Just use a dremel cutting tool disc, and saftely goggles.
