Taking of and putting back crashbars tools needed
« on: August 22, 2017, 12:40:43 pm »
Did not really look but figured let me ask anyhow.  (please note I'm not technical and just figure out shit as I go along, many  times with catastrophic results)

Just want to remove the crash bars on my adventure, to do something and place it back.

What tools I need to go buy (bare minimum)?   I assume a torque spanner thing and a "notsurewhatitcalled" that fit on the bolts holding the crash bar in place?

If I'm right, where I find what torque the tool must be set to for the crashbars.

Speak to ClimbingTurtle, he is the Guru on all thing tool related. he designed bike tool roll for my bike was and contains everything you need to basically strip the bike(if needs be) on the road side...best of all, its half the size of most of the kits you can buy.

P.S His Torque wrenches are also excellent quality.
