Longtime reader and contributor Lorenzo tipped us off to these tool kits from CruzTools — great replacements for factory motorcycle kits that are lost, damaged, or just plain crappy.
Our favorite: their RoadTech H3 (pictured) which includes most everything you’d need to un-strand your Harley without embarassing AAA help: a set of combination wrenches, an adjustable wrench, locking pliers, an LED flashlight, hex and Torx keys, a screw driver, and a lot more. There’s even a tire gauge so you don’t have to trust the lame ones at the gas station.
CruzTools offers metric versions for Asian cruisers, too, and both SAE and metrics come in a wide variety of kit sizes and combinations. Fender mounts are available for carrying larger kits on long trips, and they even sell a “fanny pack” version for when you’ve already filled all available space with, um, stuff.
The RoadTech H3 retails for $90, but CruzTools kits start around $40 and run all the way up to about $200 depending on size and contents. And they’re not limited to bike kits; Google Product Search (a.k.a. Froogle) turned up kits for snowmobiles and ATVs as well. If you’re on a budget, check out the Amazon link below to the EconoKIT H1 — a smaller version of the one pictured above that sells for a lot less at $65.
