    Check to see if any of yours fit.
    I bought that set of torx plus in order to have a full set on hand but more immediately to remove the front brake reservoir cap. However, none of the drivers fit. I was sure the screws were torx plus by looking at them. I even check Max's fiche but that didn't say what they were. So just removed them with regular torx. Low torque so no sweat.

    That's strange. The TP40 boxflyer tried on the final drive drain plug fit.
    I canceled my kit like yours since it has not shipped and probably will get a single OTC brand TP40.

    The TP 40 fits the drain plug on my 2017 r1200 just right. The filler plug however is a regular torx40.
    The best fit for the brake fluid cover screws is regular torx20, but again it's not perfectly tight.

    The FILL plug is 6mm Hex...not Torx

    I agree with Boxflyer, the fill plug takes a 6mm Hex.

    I checked the front brake reservoir cover and my OTC TP20 is a very good fit. My Craftsman T20 is a loose fit.
