Top ten must have tools as a motorcycle rider and mechanic

As a home-taught dabbling mechanic I’ve picked up knowledge and tricks as I’ve gone along, including my favourite top ten tools. 5 years ago I wouldn’t have been able to change my oil, do wheel bearings, change cams and rods on my Harley or even change a tyre – let alone change it in 4m22seconds. But with my post accident discovery of bikes I’ve been on a mission to learn and grow my mind and capabilities.

Here are my top ten tools as a motorcycle mechanic

Being quite honest, we would not be able to do the riding we do without putting in the time to do the maintenance ourselves. It’s just a bit too expensive for us to pay a garage.

So as time’s gone on I’ve learned what my top ten must have favourite tools are. Here’s the list. Let me know what you think and what tools are in your must have list? Anything you swear by I’ve missed?

This is just a list – to understand why I love each of these head to my YouTube for the full video – my top ten tools:
1. T bar
2. Speed brace
3. Torque wench [details here + video here]
4. Rabaconda
5. Wire lock pliers
6. CTEK Battery Chargers [available here]
7. Multi-meter
8. Ratchet spanners [available here]
9. Socket adapters [available here]
10. Bearing puller [available here]
