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 Shock Spring Compressor

    Tusk Shock Spring Compressor

    Jason in NY

    Don't bother

    Maybe if you have some tiny little springs they might work, but I attempted to use these, as per the RM video, to do a tender spring swap on a RZR XP1000. Nope. I was able to get the stock springs off, but that's as far as I got. With the new tender springs on, no matter what I did, I simply could not get the main springs to compress nearly enough to get the retaining collar back on. Impossible. They can't get the job done. They are flimsy and weak. They twist, slide around on the coil, and don't open large enough to get a bite on enough springs coils to compress far enough. It felt very unsafe and I really thought I was going to get hurt badly. Very disappointing, not only in the tool, but that I can't get the new tender springs on.

  • Tusk Low Pressure Dial Tire Gauge

    Tusk Low Pressure Dial Tire Gauge

    Mimi in CA

    Worked great t he first coupleof times

    I hadn't used it every much, though I have had it for a while. At first I was impressed with it. It looked well made and worked as good as it looked. I took it out of the toolbox to check some tires last weekend, and it didn't seem to be reading accurately, then stuck at about 7PSI. I like the pencil style one better. I have never had any problems with that type.

  • Tusk KYB Dual Chamber Fork Cap Wrench

    Tusk KYB Dual Chamber Fork Cap Wrench

    kris in CA

    Fits some, not others

    I had one of these wrenches already for my 2005 yz250 forks. Seemed to fit those fine but would not work on my 07 yz450 forks. I purchased a new one specifically for the yz450 and that one also does not work. The old one is too small to fit around the outer chamber and too small for the inner chamber. The new one is too small for the outer chamber and too big for the inner chamber. Same part number for both wrenches. Makes 0 sense. Part # 1182650001 for reference

    Allen keys slip in to easy, slip out easily too. Other than that, just your normal set of keys. Case has ability to hold additional key, not sure why it wasn't included (5.5).

  • Tusk Fork Oil Level Tool

    Tusk Fork Oil Level Tool

    Cody in TX

    Another quality tool from Tusk

    I don't change or adjust my fork oil every week, but do have to use this tool on a few occasion throughout the year, and it's always worked perfect. I have yet to be disappointed with a Tusk tool.

  • Tusk Pro Caliber Tire Pressure Gauge

    Tusk Pro Caliber Tire Pressure Gauge

    Cody in TX

    Has held up well and seems to be accurate

    This is my garage pressure gauge that gets used for everything. It has low enough increments for MX tires, but high enough for truck tires. It another good value from Tusk.
