Basic maintenance tool list for MV Agusta noob

Hi, sorry if an answer to this already exists. Did a quick search and couldn't find anything. I'm new to MV Agusta. Just bought my first F4 -- will pick up this week. I've always done my own basic services on my bikes and would like to do the same for the F4. What are the basic tools I would need to do this (oil changes, oil filter change, removal of wheels to get new tires, coolant changes, brake pad renewal, chain lubrication/adjustment etc)? Of course, I have torque wrenches and other basic tools, but I am asking here about MV specific tools. Here is a provisional list I have made. Please feel free to correct, add or remove:

1. Rear stand 42.5mm pin for MV
2. Front stand (I have a standard front stand, but it seems I need a specific one for MV?) I saw a youtube video of a guy raising an MV Agusta F4 I think with a standard front stand, but it didn't look very safe.
3. Real wheel nut tool
4. Chain adjustment tool (should come with bike - demo model?)

Do I need an oil filter tool spanner specific to MV Agusta? I don't even know what the filter looks like, I'm such a noob.

By the way, you may like this story. A fellow motorcyclist said to me when he learned I had bought an F4, :"You're going to be the coolest guy at work with that bike" I said, "No, I'm going to be the guy at work with the coolest bike, which is a different thing. And in fact, that's no feat at all as no one else rides a motorcycle to work. Therefore, I could turn up to work on a postman's Honda 110 and still be the guy with the coolest bike."

Any handy tips or advice for a noob starting up would be gratefully received. Thanks.

Alexander

Well, a picture may help.
Here is a collection of tools that allow me to do pretty much anything to an F4.

Can you identify the odd one out......

Welcome!
If your rear wheel nut is torqued anything like mine was, you'll need a really good quality socket AND long bar/torque wrench.


F4RR 2016

Brutale 800 Italia
KTM RC8 1190
Moto Guzzi 1100i Sport
Honda Firestorm
Yamaha Thundercat
Yamaha FZR1000 EXUP
Kawasaki GPX750R
The list only gets worse....

I'd like to know what everyone has as well. Just a general list of "specialty" tools for the average dude... right now I'm looking to remove my front and rear wheels but can't seem to find an exact answer as to if the rear nut is 55mm or 56 and what the front axle nut is either... Do I need a big allen and socket or just socket?

Sorry forgot to say that I've got a Dragster... I'm really trying to figure out exactly what tool I need to remove and install the wheels... The tool in the link states that it'll work with a 2014 Dragster yet it says it's 56mm. I'd assume this tool should work on the front and rear nuts but I haven't had anyone who can confirm... I've even called motowheels but they didn't have a good answer.


As for the OP... He's got an F4 and I'm not sure if we have the same size tool requirements.
