There is a chain adjustment tool that should be in your tool kit. its a 2 piece design. Download and read the manual for instructions. As for the stand, I own and use a Pitbull, its simple and very effective.

Manual can be downloaded here http://www.agusta.us/

Keep the chain a bit on the loose side ( otherwise your hub bearing wont last !!! )

And those all so critical pinch bolts. Pay close attention the torque settings.

Welcome to the forum....

i like PitBull stands, although i prefer stands where the handle goes forward....

you will need;
2 torque wrenches, 3/8 and 1/2 inch
a special 55mm tapered socket for the rear axle nuts, this one is for the later bikes without the front axle clamps.... http://www.speedymoto.com/Merchant2/...gory_Code=9SMT
some Clic-R pliers for the hose clamps;http://www.google.com/products?clien...ed=0CBoQrQQwAg
an oil filter wrench
a tube of Nevr-Seize or CoppaSlip for the wheel nut
2 small tubes of Loctite 242 and 271 or their equivalents
a can of waterproof wheel bearing grease

this is the easiest faired bike in the WORLD to work on, period!!!
absolutely brilliant!!!!
