Tool box suggestion


My toolbox list for everyday maintenance and teardowns.

Only some uses mentioned, and tools that I think most new do it yourselfers overlook.

I think everyone that wants to work on there own bikes should have knowledge of the tools that can benefit them in maintaining there bike.

Vernier Calipers - Uses: Brake rotors wear, rough measurement of Piston O.D. while I'm checking rings, Fork height above clamps, so they are both equal, etc.

Feeler gauges - Uses: Piston to bore clearance, ring to ring groove clearance, valves, etc.

Dial indicator with magnetic base and extensions - Uses: Ensure you are on TDC of stroke for static timing, check run out on rims, check if flywheel is running true, etc.

Bore Mics, inside mics, outside mics - Uses: To be able to tell if it's time for a piston replacement.

Flywheel puller - Self-explanatory

Multimeter - Uses: check for grounds, continuity of coils, etc.

Snap ring pliers - Self-Explanatory

Aviation Wire Pliers, and wire - Uses: Keep things from falling off. Aid in clamping fuel lines, Handle grips, etc.

      Does anybody use them, and how well are you able to get them clean, what would you use to clean them, my concern would be the cleaning issue, how would you know you got every bit of debris out of it, thanks

      Open up the tool kit on my new bike and found only two allen wrenches in the kit. Is that standard?

      The purpose of this thread is to give a place for CRF250L enthusiasts to hang out and get help when in the shop.
      It's for when the bike is under the knife... You're stuck with a quick question, have a good tip to share and more...
      If you want to ask something quick or simple, take a break for a cold one or a smoke, this is the place hang out at or post in.
      Are you beat and need a break? Stuck and need a quick answer or info? Just want to hang out in the shop? Well you're here..
      Come on in, pull up a milk crate and grab a cold one outta the old sticker fridge to pass the time.
      Post up your questions and respond to others when possible. Have group discussion about what works and what doesn't or whatever.
      Add links to other threads if you know they have the answer.... We are all in this together, so let's keep this in mind please...

      This is a family friendly PG-13 site and thread so please try to keep this in mind....
      It's kinda meant to be like "The Recovery Room" without the mental patients posts going off on twisted tangents....
      There's even coffee....
