There are tools that because of their infrequent use, or because of the space they need, it is not easy to always have them at home and that is why you have to identify a room to store them. Normally these are the tools you should have in the garage at home.
The garage or the storage room is the ideal place to take advantage of the storage space and store these tools, mainly in a safe way, thus guaranteeing the good state of conservation and avoiding their manipulation.
There is a series of tools that cannot be missing in the garage of your house to carry out the minimum maintenance of your motorcycle. These are the tricks and the tools that cannot be missing in the garage/workshop of your house.
A good cleaning prevents breakdowns, as it can be detected more easily leaks of liquids or pieces with the beginning of breakage, making more pleasant the use of its mobile components. Here we would start by including the practical cleaning paper, which in roll or coil format and with its corresponding support (wall or floor), is more comfortable than the rag of a lifetime, like the popular Kleenex, to use and throw, in place to store dirt.
This is where we all tend to throw the house out the window, not exactly when investing in the quality of the tool itself, but to buy many more than necessary, in particular, when we are interested in complete sets of tools, whether they are fixed, combined or automatic, always justifying us when thinking about the maintenance tasks of other vehicles or the home itself. If we do only with the necessary tools for the disassembly of our motorcycle, we will be surprised with a much lower investment and also with the smaller space that requires the storage of the tools themselves, favoring order and control over them.
There must be a set of fixed keys, which on the one hand are valid for a certain screw and on the other, for the upper measurement. Better still if these are closed, although sometimes they will not be valid in certain situations, but, certainly in those that do, most will not punish the two faces on which the first ones act, distributing the force on the 6 faces that make up the head of any hexagonal nut or screw. We can also choose the best budget torque wrench having greater comfort in using.
Also some screwdrivers, especially star, with various sizes the tip, as well as the own screwdriver to exert more or less force, including some very short for those places more involved. Small flat-tipped ones will serve us, among other things, to regulate the carburetor mixture or idle, and those that are somewhat larger, not much, to regulate the suspensions. One huge sure that we end up using it to lever or hit to get broken bearings.
A hammer is always necessary due to the seizure of some pieces exposed to moisture and with the risk of rusting, although something more specialized is a Teflon mallet, which will not mark or further deteriorate the said blocked parts.
Universal pliers, flat pliers with several cutting zones, will be a perfect wildcard for almost everything, hold or extract pins (eye with a lot of marking the pieces) or cut different cables or wire, although they are often used as small “precision” hammer.
In addition, to have everything located and centralized, nothing like a good toolbox, with several options, metallic lifelong or current plastic (many more sizes), including organizers with wheels for better transport, although if we do not move too much of our private garage another option is to buy a tool cabinet or make a panel for them, where at a glance we will have located everything.
