stacked me bike, want to repair it

Discussion in 'Bling and Appearance' started by canuck, Aug 18, 2009.

  1. G'day,

    I had a fairly low speed stack a couple months ago 60km/h. Did some good damage though to front fender, headlight and bracket, clutch lever, front wheel alignment, gear shift, speedo and snapped off both mirrors.

    I would like to fix the bike myself but have no tools etc..
    Any ideas for what tools I should get to go about doing this as I have never worked on a bike before?

    Any advice would be appreciated.


  2. Get a set of open ring spanners, a socket set, at the least one flat head and one phillips head screwdriver (if not a set), a hammer, an adjustable wrench and some pliers, both blunt and sharp nosed. And a workshop manual.
  3. Hi,
    To get started you will need a work shop manual for your bike .Either genuine or most likely a Haynes manual from a bike shop or from a motoring bookshop.
    Once you have that it will give you a good idea of what tools are needed.
    Basic set of tools would be metric spanners & sockets ,flat & phillips screwdrivers,pliers etc & if you want a torque wrench so you don't strip any threads.
