Lightbulb Useful Motorcycle Tools. - December 2, 2009, 09:34 AM

I thought there was a thread on this. Could not find it so add your tools here. They should be stuff that makes working on a bike easier. Save the cage stuff for your momma. I don't want to hear about your favorite brands and such. Include name and pic.

I'll start out with stuff I have found very useful.

You can take a KTM apart with these. T wrenches:


3/8" swivel ratchet wrench:


1/4" swivel ratchet wrench. Nice for removing small bolt in tight places:


Bit ratchet:

I have that Snap-On swivel ratchet in 1/4.
Great for bike work.
My favorite bike tool is my lift.
Not a really a tool but it really helps.

Torque Wrench.
May not make working on your bike easier, but you won't strip out a spark plug thread in an aluminum head or break a bolt in a magnesium case!


Magnetic nut drivers, metric of course. Helps to get that screw or bolt started when you cant get your hand in there.

This thing is great. I can pretty much do all minor maintenance with a single tool. No more swapping sockets and allen wrenches and searching for that damn tool that I had just a minute ago.

An impact wrench makes removing the bolt from the bottoms of forks much easier.

at times the front sprocket too.

I want that three way speed wrench. How many times are you going back and forth between 9, 10, and 12mm sockets?

A torch for rusted nuts. They are usually well past WD-40 or PB Blaster territory by the time I encounter them.

Micro spatula--comes in very handy almost every time I work on a bike (click-it-y click).
