Tool Kits

From Unofficial Zero Manual
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a reference for the tools needed to work on Zeros. Some or many of these may be worth carrying with you on your bike, especially if you ride off-road or take trips far from home.

All "wrench" entries could be open-end, box, or even a socket. Torque values for most fasteners can be found in the owners' manuals. Add-on or aftermarket accessories (lights, windscreens, luggage, etc) may require additional tools.
