Your own custom ToolSet

I find it wierd that such an active forum whould not have such a thread on required tools..Anywhore I am going soon to the hardware store to pickup some tools and was wondering does anyone have a specific list of the required tools for non major dissassemlby.

By non-major i mean nothing to remove engine...intake..exhaust..radiator..swingarm..fork ..etc.. just what is required to do your oil/filter, coolant, brake pads/fluids changes + fairing, seat, fenders, lights removal and access your wires and electrical stuff.

1/2" torque wrench, good set of screwdrivers, good set of Allen keys (I like the T style with handle), 3/4" socket set with sizes 8-24mm sockets, 26(or maybe 27)mm 1/2" socket, breaker bar, tap and die set, torch, extendable magnet,long tweezers, needle nose players, vice grips

Probably missed a few things. If you don't have k&n oil filter get oil filter wrench

basically i just got the bike and want to be abke to do most time-based maintenance myself and access all wires since the previous owner has played around with the wiring adding cheesy lights everywhere.

EDIT: it's an 09 no ABS

They are my common tools for accessing and maintenance. Get a 1/4" torque wrench too if u do clearances yourself :)

Buy middle range gear all round, u will use them for the rest of your life. I just buy new things as I need them, no major outlay in one hit and it means I afford better quality tools. Wait until u need something done before u buy tools mate

Been lookin at the $25 and $50 Craftsman Evolv series. They can't be too cheap, can they? I mean, they still have the craftsman name and warranty? Pretty awesome tool sets for the price?

You can fix LIFE with it. For vehicle related things a torque wrench is useful with a couple of sockets.

well.. i don't have any experience with them, but a lot of friends have various cheap tools they've picked up there and from what i've seen they all work just as well as my hella expensive snap-on/craftsman/s-k tools. if you're not doing anything major and dont have to worry about snapping sockets, rigerous use or anything, id just save the money and go with harbor frieght

Sears has some good deals on their tool sets and they'll probably go even cheaper on Black Friday. This is a good starter set for $150.

and while not really a tool, I vote for rear captive spacers if you do your own tire changes !

Yes. But how do you get to your valves?
