I forgot to tighten an inner chain case allen bolt when reinstalling my clutch... and luckily found the right sized allen key that also was cheap enough to be able to be bent...!

Good quality keys can be heated and bent if you re harden them by heating to cherry red and then dunking in cold oil or water. Will lose strength, but still do the job unless the bolt has to be REALLY tightened!
