    Suggestions of Tools for Harley Davidsons.

    Hi Everybody.

    I got this off this site just after I joined so I thought I'd repost it for all the newbies and anyone
    else who might find it helpful, about the tools needed for tinkering with your bike.

    Tools for Harley Davidsons.

    Make sure all yer spanners have a ring end - far, far better grip on those bolts.

    10mm spanner - this is the token metric tool but Vital - for battery bolts.

    Spanners:
    1/2, 7/16, 9/16, 11/16, 3/8, 5/8 are the most common sizes.
    You can get ratcheting spanners with half on on end and 9/16
    on the other - VERY handy.

    But you will find that smaller and bigger sizes get the use too.

    Sockets: same again. Sometimes you need a socket, sometimes a spanner works best, often you
    need to hold the bolt with the socket while You loosen/tighten the nut with the spanner.
    Cover yourself on both.

    14mm spark plug socket.

    Oil filter strap socket

    Big, big socket sizes like 1 1/16 come in very handy when you start removing
    rear axle, removing compensator sprocket. These can fetch £10-15 a socket.
    To make sure you buy right, look at the metric/imperial conversion guide in your factory manual
    (VERY handy page that), use your metric socket/s as a guide, and go to the shop informed !

    3/8 drive breaker bar for some of the above jobs.

    Whatever drive you choose, get a little extension bar and a knuckle (bendy bit for tight fits).
    A very good quality socket wrench is worth 5 cheap ones

    Needle nose pliers - these also fish out nuts that you have dropped

    £2 Magnetic 'pen' - see above

    Quality torque wrench - critical if you get into base gasket job, primary
    teardown, etc, but buy one that covers the values you need
    (typically 12-160 ft lb)

    Leatherman multi-tool

    Ratchet screw driver with magnetic bits

    Rubber/plastic mallet/hammer

    Heavy ''No 1 tool'' skullcrusher hammer for driving out axles, bearing
    races with drifts, etc

    Allen key set with BALL ends at one end - these let you get to tight allen
    heads at an angle

    Break out the propane torch and ruin, sorry, *customise* an 11/16 spanner by bending it so
    you can hold the clutch adjuster nut while altering the adjustment with allen key.
    Without removing outer primary.... I'll show you my one in spring !

    I aways carry 3ft spare wire & connectors, spare circuit breaker/s, bulb or two, spare battery
    ground cable, battery bolts.

    The key with tools is always Buy Good Ones. You don't have to go to Snap On (who can afford them ?)
    but stay away from the Taiwanese specials at the street market.

    Junk will always ending up biting you in the ass.

    Re: Suggestions of Tools for Harley Davidsons.

    For future reference, here is a link to plenty Allen/Hex socket sets, they are in the States and their are prices to suit everyone's pocket.
    The Yanks call them Hex by the way, and the ones you want are labeled as SAE not Metric, but their are some sets that cover both.:439:

    Hex Set Socket - Compare Prices, Reviews and Buy at NexTag - Price - Review

    By the way their's millions of the bleeders

    Suggestions for HD Tools and What Spanner Fits What... Most Sporties and Evo

    Hi Everybody.

    I have 2 files about tools for HD's (both are on here and would have to be searched for).
    The first is called suggestion for tools for Harley Davidsons, and the second is what spanner fits what.

    So I thought I'd combine them and put it here.
    Hopefully it should be of use.

    1 7/8" and you want a spacer to keep it straight.
