A portable tool kit will have different requirements to a fully featured workshop kit, the key considerations are summarised below.
Portable Motorcycle Tool Kit:
- Size – It is important that the kit is easy to pack, and doesn’t take up too much space.
- Weight – Keeping the weight to a minimum makes for easier use and storage.
- Durability – Tools need to be reliable, as they can’t be conveniently replaced.
Home/Workshop Motorcycle Tool Kit:
- Versatility – More pieces and parts will cover a wider range of projects.
- Quality – Long lasting and damage proof.
What you’ll get for your money?
Remember – quality is key, and if you scrimp too much you might find yourself shelling out more cash at a later date to replace shoddy kit.
Strong tools are usually built of steel, because it is a tough, wear resistant material. Also look for good warranties and some brands even offer lifetime guarantees, which could mean never having to reach into your pockets again.
