    Question What are the "must have" tools for TW200?

    For tune ups, valve adjustments, oil changes, and other maintenance what are the must haves?

    As we all know, every bike has it's own persona in required tools.
    TIA,

    I've had my TW for a couple of years and done all my own maintenance. The basics would be a metric socket, hex key wrenches, and wrench set, feeler gauges, JIS screw drivers, grease gun. After that, the sky's the limit. You could also get tire irons, spanner wrench for the steering head, various punches, pliers, torque wrenches, and the list goes on.
