i went to remove the freehub body with my trusty monstrous allen key
only to find that clearly shimano decided to have some sort of splined tool
for removal of this body! does anyone have any idea where i'd find such
a device?

thanks for those photos. the splined areas look a lot broader than a torx key - almost the same kind of profile as you'd find on a cassette removal tool. never seen anything like it but then my mechanic skills went only as far as 7 speed back in the day!

i contacted an old friend of mine who works at the largest bike shop in the country and he says that he thought that the tool looked familiar but he certainly hasn't see it for many years!!

What about contacting those RB members from the link I posted earlier?
Meanwhile I done couple of searches, but If it's such hens teeths,maybe somebody can made it.
Seen tool (for Hope BB in Retro MTB Chat) made by Rampage,maybe he will help.

Found few good pictures here:
