I've ordered some alternative main jets for altitude. In the XR400 Haynes manual it says the main jet can be removed via the drain plug on the float bowl. Honda don't supply whatever type spanner is used for this, does anybody know what size and type of spanner fits?

I had the bike rolling roaded a couple of weeks back, the only change was to put 120 main jets in.
