6 Recommended Tool Sets for Motorcycle Maintenance!

Parts & Gear Reviews

The coolest tool torque wrench.

I'm Nao, a Webike Magazine writer.

It's safe to leave the maintenance of your motorcycle to the professionals, but if you do the part you can do yourself, you'll get attached to your motorcycle.

But what kind of tools do I need for maintenance?If you're wondering what to do! Don't worry.

In this issue, I will feature "How to choose a tool" and "Recommended tools" to solve such questions!

3 Methods to Choose a Motorcycle tool!

There are 3 things to keep in mind when choosing a motorcycle tool.

1. Let's start with a "quality automotive tool"!

2. The ratchet handle is your best friend for maintenance!

3. If you're serious about maintenance, you could buy a "tool kit"!

I'll explain it one by one.

1. Let's start with a "quality automotive tool"!

I don't need the in-cabin tools because they came with it.It may seem like a good idea.

However, with the exception of a few in-vehicle tools that come with the vehicle, the quality of the tools is not as flattering as it should be. We recommend the use of good quality tools for routine maintenance to avoid unnecessary problems.

Buying a good quality in-car tool to start with will allow you to kill two birds with one stone, both on the road and at home. The tools needed for basic maintenance have been carefully selected.So, if you don't know where to start, don't worry.

It's a good idea to start with on-board tools and then buy more tools that are missing. Here are some of our favorite in-car tools!

KTC Rider's Maintenance Tool Set 21,466 yen (tax included)

KTC (Kyoto Machine Tool Co., Ltd.) is one of the leading tool manufacturers in Japan.
In order to maintain the quality of our products, we do not use subcontractors, but instead, carry out integrated production at our own plants.

Here's what's in KTC's very popular toolset.

Recommended Points

  • Compact size (when stored vertically): Approx. 13cm wide: (Approx. 27 cm)
  • A ratchet driver is used to make work easier.
  • A socket is used to work on the recesses that cannot be handled by a wrench.
  • The tool bag has enough space to hold more than just the set.

[Product Contents]

The case and tools are all authentic KTC stuff, so if you take care of them, they'll last a lifetime! This is a "real" toolset that you will love as you use it.

2. The ratchet handle is your best friend for maintenance!

Once you have the basic tools, such as a box-end wrench and screwdriver, the next thing you want to have is a ratchet handle.

The ratchet handle is used to tighten bolts and nuts with a reciprocating hand movement because it can be loosened. Work efficiency goes up a notch.

The time it takes to perform maintenance without it makes a huge difference, so it's a must-have tool. Here's the ratchet handle we recommend!

PROXXON|65-point Auto-mechanic Set 3/8 16,841 yen (tax included)

Here's what PROXXON recommends for such a ratchet handle.

Part 3. If you want to do some serious maintenance, you could buy a tool kit!

If you want to do some serious maintenance, you can buy a toolset in a toolbox.
Every tool - wrenches, screwdrivers, ratchet handles, pliers, and hammers - is stored in its own box. If you buy this, the only thing else you'll need is a special size socket for each vehicle and a special tool. By the time you need them, you may be pretty good at maintenance.

So, here are a few toolsets that I recommend!

Good tools make for a better motorcycle life!

How was your experience? Just changing the oil and plugs in your car will make you love it a lot more. I was going to fix it, but I broke it backward! You want to use a good tool to avoid what's going to happen. This is a great opportunity to consider the tools of a lifetime!

Yes!
