Doh! I just realised today that my original Yamaha toolkit has a JIS screwdriver in it already!

I went to a different Yammy dealer today.  When I asked about a special screwdriver for Japanese imports, he looked at me like I had 3 heads growing a 4th. 

You see, he has been working on bikes since the early 90's and had never heard of such a thing.

So.....I guess you guys are wrong.   ::) :-X

It doesn't surprise me that he hasn't heard of a JIS head screwdriver - many people haven't. He's also probably also wondering why his Phillips head screwdrivers keep camming out the heads of screws on Jap bikes.

Send him this wee instructable. It might just change his life!
