If you carry a 3/8 ratchet with you, you can get a 3/8 drive 22mm socket. Maybe Home Depot, Amazon does have it.Tom
A guy near Jackson, Ohio made these. I will look through my stuff and see if I have a name. I don't think he does them for a business, but I bought some V7 filters from him and he made these for me. Forgive the Triumph logo, my wife bought me several Triumph items when I had my Trophy so it has a sentimental value.
You could find an original Guzzi "dog-bone" wrench which has a 22 mm box end (and usually a 24 or 27 on the other end). In the past I've just bought a cheap 22 mm (or 7/8") wrench and cut it off. Then I got smart and just bought "finger twist" dipsticks.https://www.mgcycle.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=281
Shoot, I can't see (most) pics from this site on my work machine... I will check it out when I get home
EDIT: Ouch! $66 for an oil fill plug/dipstick! YIKES
Someone was making a 3D printed hand tool for smallblock oil fill/dipstick plugs.Just curious if anyone has seen a 22mm hex version for big block motors??Or should I just buy a Harbor Freight 22mm box-end and cut the handle down for easy carry
If you want to sketch what you want I'll do a little design and print one for you to try. Printer not busy at the moment as other projects on the go.
I'm not sure 3D printed plastic is up to loosening (and tightening) an original filler plug/dipstick adequately. Maybe if it had an o-ring on it like the small-block one, but it needs to be fairly tight with a crush washer or even fiber washer to keep from leaking. $8, lop off the open end: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01J1KSC5O/

How 'bout this one? It's just right for my V7III.https://gtmotocycles.com/products/gt-v7-oil-cap-tool
I think that is the one my friend printed off for me Charlie. Goes really well and no trouble in the strength department.
I made a paper template and transferred it to a piece of 1/4" plastic. A bit of time in the shop with a fret/coping saw and here is the double ended result. Not pretty, but completely functional.Rick
You did that with a fret saw!?
Actually easier than one might think: once the paper template is transferred to the plastic protective paper, drill out the outer points with a small drill bit; drill out the inner part of the plastic with a hole saw; finish off the curved parts with a fret/coping saw followed by a bit of sandpaper wrapped around a small stick.
