Agree with you about the ball heads for hex wrenches.   I actually use that
side to tighten the screws that just go into the plastic so I don't
over-tighten.   No such thing exists for Torx, but Torx isn't as fussy about
wrench angle as hex.   I was cursing BMW for switching after I bought my
cool German Hex wrenches, but I like Torx and a set of Torx sockets will
pretty much do the whole bike now.   There are still a few legacy items that
use hex, but not many.   
It snowed yesterday.   I'm wearing longies to work today.from New Zealand.
First time this season.  Drat!

 Hi Tom,
Thanks for the nice write up, saved here in case my eyes ever stray to a
1200RT :>) .
I have not (yet?) seen a ball head torx - just wondering if they exist.
Although I seldom R&R my fairing I have been thoroughly spoilt by my 3mm
ball head hex screwdrivers for this job.  I don't use the ball head to do
the final tightning "nip" or to start the screw out but for the rest they
are great.
