Prepping my engine for my moto build. Simply taking off the gas tank of this 4 stroke build. Realized ill need more then just an 8mm wrench and flat head. Looking at ratchet and socket sets on amazon, seem like you can purchase a low level set for 15-30 dollars, a med for 30 - 50, and a pro set for 50, 80, and up. My question is, regarding quality of tools obviously, higher the better, but could i get a away with a medium range, say 30-50 for basic engine repair/bike repair ? Attached are a few im checkin out.

LOL! You will not need a workpro would be good enough for bikes, i like the fact it has 6 point sockets instead of 12 point. Less chance of slipping...........Curt

Most of my bike tools come from Harbor Freight. My good tools, Snap On, stay in the tool chest saved for use on the car and pickup. I use them, so do 3 of the neighbors. If they lose one, they are cheap to replace.

I would definitely go
With the DeWalt. I’ve used their tools before they seemed to hold up pretty good. Just my two cents.

Hey everyone!
Have any of you had luck finding tool kits specifically with motorized bikes in mind? I only found one on king motorbikes.

https://www.kingsmotorbikes.com/products/universal-bicycle-tool-set?variant=12204555844

Would this kit have everything needed?

If you're not sure of kits specifically for this, what are all the tools that you think would be necessary for installation and future maintenance/rebuild? I only recently installed my first engine kit and want to be ready to tear it down and replace the stock parts with better quality parts.
