Thanks to John Dyer for posting his idea for a tappet adjustment tool on the Yahoo! Loopframe_Guzzi news group. This tool will be very useful when adjusting the valve clearances. In John's own words:

I made the adjustment wrench in the photo myself.

It's just a slot cut and filed in the end of an old spanner which had been sacrificed for something else. Original toolkits had something similar.
