Looks like hex key wrench or some call it allen wrench. If on a bike it will be metric. Unless the peice in the middle is sticking up. Hard to tell from angle.

Tamper-proof allen. (the designers don't want you to take it out)

Btw harbor freight sells a box of all the security bits, like $5 or so. It's a life saver.
You can also take a dremel with a cut off wheel and cut a slit down the middle. Then use a flat head.

Tamper proof or security allen. Not torx, although there are torx like that too - often on key ignition mounting bolts

Thanks all! I'm headed to HF today. $9.99 for the kit

I've done the dremel slot before. I work on enough carbs that I need the tool and I really don't want bits of metal flying around.
