This is a dumb question but I noticed I am mising my lug wrench or did they leave it out because of no centerstand?

TIA

Bingo,......they left it out because there is no centerstand and therefore they don't want to arm an unsuspecting numbskulls with the ability to start taking off the rear tire while on the sidestand.

It was left out for weight savings.

And good luck if you ever have to use the thing to actually loosen the lug nuts, let alone torque them to specs on reinstalling!
