Tekton 3/8 Torque Wrench

Recommended Posts

Took apart/re-greased my front end today, it didn't really need it, but I was bored none the less. Went to torque the forks to spec and realized I didn't have a torque wrench on hand. so I ordered this cheap Tekton for $30, reviews seemed good, figured it would work fine for small jobs on the bike. Anyone ever used one of these before/have opinions etc?

I bought a Craftsman torque wrench online and have had nothing but good things to say.  But there's a reason it was 1/2 the price, because the knob on the 3/8 ratchet was broken off so a socket won't "click in." 

 

Sears.com has them for half off right now, I may buy a new one for 1/2 the price!  Only $40.00

Nevermind, they are only for 25-250 lb torque range.  That doesn't apply to anything on a dirt bike but the axles, shock bolts and engine mounts.

Harbor Freight sells a decent 8-80lbs torque wrench for like $30. You get what you pay for, but I have no complaints thus far.
