Working on your motorcycle can be fun but it can also be frustrating without the right set of tools. We can help fix that with the tools you need to make your garage into a legitimate motorcycle work shop. It is always a good idea to start by getting the tools you will use most frequently while doing basic maintanence and repairs. If you don't already have a service manual for your motorcycle you should get one and flip through it. It will give you an idea of which tools you will be using most, it can be a good indicator of where you should start building out your toolbox. Most jobs, even basic maintenance will require measurements and specs. that can only be found in your service manual so it can be a useful tool every time you wrench.
Your motorcycle is a very specialized machine and as a result the tools to work on it are also specialized. Unfortunately people often use the wrong tools on their motorcycles and actually cause damage or at best bust up their knuckles. Avoid all that by using the right tools the first time.
General tools are a must in every tool box. By this I mean screw drivers, crescent wrenches, end wrenches, allen wrenches, sockets and ratchets. Then you can start thinking about some of the motorcycle specific tools that you will need. Everyone who owns a motorcycle should also own an air pressure gauge and use it regularly. Tools such as snap ring pliers, fork bleeders, safety wire pliers, t-handle wrenches, spring pullers and spoke wrenches are some specialty tools that can really help.
