    Crap. Now I can’t remember what it is. Oh yeah. It’s for removing the threaded inspection plugs on older Triumph side cases. The slot is too wide for a screwdriver. It will work but it eventually chips them. The bottom of the slot is half-moon shaped. I bought this one many moons ago. I think a guy was making them and selling them on eBay. It has a nice metalized coating on it. They are commercially made now and a little different.

    I've actually got the real factory tool for removing inspection plugs on the British bikes. I thought about answering that it was this application, but the internal threads threw me off. I'm PMing you for an email address to send you a picture of the real tool. If it comes through, feel free to post.
    Yes, mine has been modified over the years for other similar applications, but you'll get the idea.

    It’s pronounced Zeus, the d is silent.

    Had no idea what a Dzus was, I know what a Zeus is, but never seen it spelled, I made one of those tools out of a 1/2" screw driver bit for English bikes in the old days, still have it some where, probably with my Dowidat BS wrenches.
