Primary Tech Tools for your Motorcycle

by Darnell Austria

It doesn't matter how fresh your bike is, when ever highway stuff causes trouble or slow speed parking lot accidents happen. In the event you need a little adjustment or major highway mechanics are required, simply being stuck considering that you don't have anything to utilize to repair your motorbike or some other rider's bike with is not an excuse. The bottom line is the proper tool to do the job is actually having tech tools to complete the job with.

Repeatedly I hear "those tools and supplies are too costly" when pertaining to motorcycle specialty tools, and although I personally think you can not spend an excessive amount on tools and supplies, but some folks are simply economical and won't cut loose with the dough to help keep themselves from harm's way.

That's the reason I challenged myself to take a fresh $100 to the nearest hardware store and set my sites on compiling the essential roadside tool set.

Soon after checking out the isles and contemplating bike accident instances which ranges from braking system failure to hitting a buffalo, I collected what I feel is actually a life-saving array of high-quality tech tools at an incredible low price.

Here's what I picked

1. Two of the lowest priced and most essential tech tools are electrical tape and bailing wire. Good tasks can be carried out with only these 2 things alone.

2. What good are having tools if you do not have any sort of way to see what you are doing? Using a couple of flashlights one can be used in a stationery spot and the other can be handheld. 2 will always be a lot better than just one.

3. Vise Grip pliers normally takes the place of several tools. They'll be able to crimp a leaky brake for fuel line and get you out of serious trouble.

4. Just like the Vise Grip, a wrench could also take the job of more than half a tool box packed with tools. Many of us especially like this "wide mouth" style, it can work with just about any nut or bolt on a bike but it still has a compact size.

5. Assorted small cutters and pliers are great for retrieving broken wires or holding nuts. When you buy a large set, make sure to carry only the essentials.

6. Torx Bits abound on motorbikes produced in the last 20 years. Don't even attempt to fix a bike not having these. We got a six-piece socket set of them and cut down the plastic edges of the holder in order to save space.

7. Hex wrenches may also be rampant on our motorbikes. These compact wrenches were under $5 for the pair and had every possible size we'll need if broken.

8. Being that most motorbikes built these days are a mix of SAE and metric as well as six and twelve-point, a socket set that have both is often good to include. We also "modified" the plastic tool holder using a hacksaw to make it as compact as possible.

9. Proper-fitting open-end wrenches are essential for getting in snug spaces and not stripping bolts and nuts.

10. Various sizes of screwdrivers are needed to complete the job correctly. Plus you could always utilize them as pry bars or chisels if needed.

11. Since our bikes already have much more electrical wiring than ever, a pair of all purpose wire strippers and cutters were included in our list of essential tech tools. One never knows whenever a wiring problem would be the one thing required to allow you to get back on the road.

12. Possessing the proper tool for the job is essential, but what if parts mess up or disappear while on the road? There are great compact packs of nuts and bolts and various hose clamps among other things. Others include one with emergency utility supplies such as shrink wrap, butt connectors, and cable ties.

13. We also bought a box loaded with fuses so that we could well be well prepared if any of the stock parts broke.

14. Since we don't need to have 4 individual cases of a huge selection of pieces, we compacted most of the components into one handy container in order to lighten the load and conserve space in the saddlebag.

So now, we're all set to go for a confident ride together with the essentials loaded up handily that is below $100 and it even fits perfectly straight into a saddlebag with space to spare to your own carbon fiber helmet.
