    I'm assembling a CT70-specific toolbox, and would love input from those with the experience in the matter! Would love it if this became a sticky, and responses followed a general format. Tool size & name : use (if it has a specific use). This way someone searching for either a tool or a task, might find it.

    I'll start it off.

    17mm wrench, 9mm wrench, needle-nose pliers, .002 - .003 feeler gauge : Valve adjustment

    Are you talking about an under-seat tool kit, for riding, or a complete set of shop tools?

    Okay...from memory and in no particular order:
    • 19mm socket/wrench for the axle nuts
    • 8,9,10,11,12,13,14,15, 16mm wrenches/sockets
    • pin/screwdriver that fits the axle heads
    • Valve adjusting tool
    • plug socket
    • 28mm socket for the steering stem (someone should double-check, my memory isn't as clear it should be on this one)
    • 4-pin socket for the keyswitch ring
    • spanner for the steering stem nut
    • spanner, or 4-pin socket for the handlebar clamp nuts
    • feeler gauges
    • flywheel puller
    • JIS screwdrivers & bits
    • flat blade screwdriver
    • impact driver
    • shock compressor - to R&R the covers & springs
    • soldering gun
    • jet cleaning files
    • gasket scraper
    • wire brushes
    For the hardcore:
    • valve seat stones
    • lapping compound
    • lapping tool
    • bearing pullers for the crank & wheel bearings
    • hydraulic press
    • v-blocks

    1-1/8" socket will fit the steering stem if you don't have the proper metric size.

    Bob I hope someone is covering for me then,what were talking about again? You know how things stick in your mind forever? Well as a kid I used a screwdriver and a hammer,back in the stone age we just could not get tools like that,suppose we could have got one from Honda but we just didn't have extra money anyway nor the means to get to the dealer easy either.

    A magic rebuild box built from 2x4s. (four of them, eight inches long as I recall.)
