Agreed adjustable wrenches will round off bolts very quickly. I do however have an extra large adjustable in case I ever come across a bolt that is over 1". I think it opens up to 3" I have used it, once. Bought it at harbor freight for $12. I think its on in store item only thing though because I can't find it online.
Looks kinda like the wrench Bear in Armagedon carries on his shoulder when he tries to stop Harry from shooting AJ.
Ditto on the six-point! I have a nice set of 3/8 inch metric sockets, but unfortunately, they're all twelve point. I would love it if they were all six-point. Twelve's are nice when you don't have a lot of room to work in, but I use six-points whenever I can, as I also don't like to ding up fasteners. Keeps everything looking new.
While Harbor Freight isn't the be-all to end-all, I will confess to picking up monster sockets and other oddball tools on occasion when I don't want to buy a whole set of something. Upon close inspection, it appears everything there was made in China, however.
I have about 6 sets of wrenches but the ones I prefer to use for bleeding is the one from the $20 husky stubby metric wrench set.
If not at HD, then get the stanley (labeled) version @ WalMart for a few $ more, both have lifetime warranties and are decent in fit and finish.
Though I think the HD version is 6 point, WM is 12, so try HD if you got em.
Hi. During my Track Days last two days my clutch decide to give up luckily on last session. Gear 1,2 and 3 worked fine but when I put in fourth it gripped, got loose, gripped and got loose. Is it hard to do by yourself if you are a rookie mechanic or should I leave to shop? A complete clutch kit...
The manual states to put it on its side stand yet the majority of online tutorials would have this done on rear paddock stand. Would the bike on its stand give a more accurate measurement or is there no difference at all?
I have never changed break oil but want to learn :)
I´ve seen som handpumps where you first pump out oil from cup, then refill with new oil and connect to one break caliper and pump out oil from hose until cup almost is empty and then other side.
Is it the easiest way?
Does anyone know what...
