Yamaha YBR 125 Basic maintenance and repair motorcycle tool kit

you got to have a good set of tools if you intent on having a motorbike , motorbikes seem to take a bit more
on going maintenance than a car does .
and a Cagiva Mito will take a bit more than most , in fact any 2 stroke not just the Mito .

After you have owned a bike for while and you know quite a lot about it , it can be fun to do repairs , that is what i tell ,myself anyway .

but if you want to save money its a must .

2 rules for tools , buy quality and look after them !! i hate going around friends houses to work on there bike , i am not going to use my tools on their bikes, end up using some metal cantilever toolbox from the 60s that is dropping to pieces and weighs a ton , with rusty tools from the same era too  , but still better than cheap Chinese rubbish that snaps in 2 when you need it the most .

buy quality and look after them do not let other people use them or borrow them pack then away and clean then at the end of the job .

here is some of the tools i have , i started out with rubbish but you soon realise that quality tools are
worth 10x the value of cheap rubbish , you do not have to buy snap on or anything,far too dear for me (in UK anyway) i use britool where possible .

these are the tools i have buy snap on if you can or similar brands as long as there good quality , and feel good to use i stick with britool as i know there good and reasonable price but would buy all snap on if i could afford it .

If i can find one ill add a link to the names so you can see them on amazon

Clarke 9 Drawer Ball Bearing Roller Tool Chest (took me years to get on of these now there well cheap )

Britool metric spanner set X2  you will need 2 sets of spanners (1 12point 1 6 point set)

britool 1/4 3/8 and  1/2 inch socket sets

britool scredriver set Posi and Flat head mix all sizes

britool pliers set (standard , long nose and snips )
