May 7 Motorcycle Awareness Month

Most riders who ride older bikes tend to carry tools because they know they may need them.  But even a new bike might need something minor done to it that will require tools.   Some bikes come with tools kits but they don’t always have everything you need.  You can get some multitools that will take the place of several tools but they don't always work as well as if you had the actual tool for the job.

  • Electrical and Duct tape 
  • Knife
  • Zip ties
  • Hex & Torx wrenches
  • Tire pressure gauge
  • Flat head screwdriver
  • Philips screwdriver
  • Pliers & wire cutter
  • Adjustable wrench
  • Spark Plug tool
  • Small flashlight
  • Bungee cords
  • Jump box (Juno jumper or similar thing)

Optional Additional Items:

  • Reflective safety vest
  • Road reflectors
  • Work gloves
  • Kickstand pad

* Also, some small spare parts are not a bad idea. 

Spark plugs

Light bulbs

Here are some links to where you can get tool kits and some of the specific tools.
