Basic Tools

Recommended Posts

I've bought a shiny new Triumph Daytona 675. What do you consider to be the basic set of tools I require for maintenance? I'm guessing at paddock stands, socket set, torque wrench. Any comments or opinions?

Engine Maintenance:


* Socket Set

* Hose Clamp

* Flywheel Puller

* Torque Wrench

YOu'll need 2 torque wrenchs ..


One big, one little - look through the haynes manual for you bike - under the torques settings bit and consider the ranges you will need ...


As far as sockets go .. 1/2 inch is good for big stuff like axel nuts etc ..


But for many things 3/8" or even 1/4" sizes are nice - cos the dinkyness is bonus when you're working on some of the smaller fixings you find on bikes :idea:


Try not to buy pooo pooo ... it's false economy in the long run :idea:


Other tip - when you've used your torque wrench ALWAYS set it back to zero - so that there is no tension on the mechanism - it'll stay true for longer that way :idea:


I flogged tools for living many moons ago .. If you want any specific advice shout me anytime :wink:

Eh, you must have owned some old bikes. All my bikes in the last 20 years have all had metric nuts.

There doesn't seem to be a Haynes manual for the Triumph Daytona 675. Any suggestions for an alternative?
