Tool kit question

Postby twocams » Wed Sep 14, 2016 8:31 pm



I have a single feeler gauge in my leather tool kit (0.7 ) anyone know what its for? Also there are 3 straight single allen wrenches. They look like they need a driver to use them. Are these Honda items or something someone added to my kit.

The 0.7 mm feeler is to check the gap when you install the front wheel with brake discs on the front forks. Checks the gap between the front rotors and the brake caliper housing. Check out your Clymer manual under the brake section.
The 3 allen wrenches can be attached to one of the socket bits so you can use your socket wrench to remove some of the allen bolts on your bike, like the 2 allen bolts either side of the seat or the allen bolts that mount the fairing to the frame, the footboards and many others.

Ok thanks,

I just used one of my feeler gauges in my tool box when I worked the brakes. Now I know. Ill have to find a driver for the allen wrenches. Not sure what to use but not one in my tool kit.

If those Allen key drivers are a standard size shank, a 1/4" drive (or 3/8" drive if you prefer) deep socket 1/4" size will work. Slip one into the socket and tighten or loosen as required. Be careful as they will drop out easily. Maybe keep a roll of electrical tape to use to hold the bits in place.

Thanks,

I have a tool kit exactly like that. What I dont have is a driver or handle for the 1/4" allen wrenches. But I will have, you wait and see.
