Street Motorcycle Tools

Whether you’re just getting into wrenching on your bike or you’re an established motorcycle mechanic, you need to have tools. Fortunately, we’ve got something for everyone. It doesn’t matter whether you’re picking up your first set of wrenches or looking for a specialized tool, we’ve got what you’re looking for.

If you’re just beginning, don’t get too eager by dreaming of fancy tools you see your friends working with. Instead, focus on the basics, things like wrenches and screwdrivers. There are a couple of other general tools that will come in handy as well, like socket wrenches or impact drivers. Your toolset should begin with the basics like these.

One of the most important things you need if you’re going to be working on your bike is the service manual. It discusses what you need to know to wrench on your particular motorcycle, like your torque specs. But that’s not all it tells you – it also indicates if any specialty tools are required for a job. Specialized tools are necessary to complete certain jobs.

Finally, there are also tools which are designed for a specific purpose and which add an extra layer of convenience to the process. These aren’t always required to complete a certain task per se, but they sure make it a lot easier to get the job done right. In the beginning, you probably won’t have any of these, and that’s okay. But if you’re looking to expand your existing toolset, you’ll love it when you get a tool that makes your life easier. Suddenly, a job that used to take 60 minutes might only take 10.

Naturally, there are a couple of additional things that you might want to keep around as well, like a parts dish, zip ties or gloves. These aren’t tools by definition, but you’ll still want them around your garage. They come in handy.

This motorcycle tools page is divided into several categories, as you can see above. Some of these sections are for general tools or tools for working on a specific section of your bike (like the engine or the tires). However, others aren’t tools at all but rather things that will make it easier to work on your bike, like hardware kits and shopwear. If you’re serious about working on your motorcycle, you might also want to check out our lift stands. They make working on your bike much easier (and less strenuous).

Wrenching on your own motorcycle is something that every rider can do to some extent – you just need the right tools. You can find what you need at Rocky Mountain ATV/MC, whether you’re just getting started, looking to upgrade, or trying to find a specialty tool. Check out our selection now!

  • Tusk Flywheel/Pulley Holder

    EVAN in SC

    Disappointed

    Used product to torque down flywheel on a crf450 and the protective coating around the belt tore which caused the belt to slip on the flywheel making the job impossible to do with the tool. Waste of money.

  • Bike Master Shock Spanner Wrench

    Chris in CA

    Didn't work for me..

    Not sure what this is for but it doesn't fit any big bikes that I own or have worked on. I do a fair amount of shock work and it's useless.

  • Tusk Fork Oil Level Tool

    Scott in CA

    Fork oil tool

    My feelings are a bit mixed about this tool. It is very simple to use, reasonably priced, and nice to have. But when using it, the plunger mechanism got stuck several times and was shockingly hard to free up. This is very odd but it felt like the steel tube got clogged and yet I was using new, 5W oil and there were no impurities. When I pushed the plunger really hard it finally cleared but then again would freeze. When it wasn't sticking, I was eventually able to accurately set the oil level.

  • Motion Pro Swing Arm Bearing Tool

    David in CA

    Mixed feelings on this, good, but misses the mark a...

    This is a very high quality set of tools. But, they made it so generic and it really is just an aid to doing your bearing job vs. a complete tool for the job. For example, I still needed to use sockets when pulling and installing my swingarm bearings. And the tool wasn't any help with getting the bearing into the proper position in the swingarm (KTM 450, has 2 bearings on each side, with this tool it doesn't help to know when the first bearing in in far enough). For the price, it would probably make more sense to go to a hardware store and get a threaded rod and some washers and use sockets, that would probably be around $5-$7. I still recommend it because it is very high quality and it got me 75% of the where I needed with the bearing work I used it for. Just understand it isn't everything you need to get a job done.

  • Tusk Crankcase Splitter

    Tim in CO

    Saved a ton compared to OEM part

    I purchased this to use in my DRZ400E rebuild (@dr.400sm). Worked perfectly and split the case without trouble, definitely go this route before shelling out $$$ for the Suzuki part.
