well here are a few honda tools that i made for no money that can made by anyone with a hacksaw .....lol

swing arm locking nut tool !
this one is made from a cheep china 1in socket i had lying around that i cut the top to fit the 4 grooved nut (i only made it with 2 insted of the 4 like the nut ....but works just fine )




front and rear pinon nut tool !
this tool i made from a 1 1/4in steam radiator valve . the end of the valve is 2in at the nut and needs to be ground down a little (to almost 1 7/8in ).i just used a big pair of channel locks to tighten and remove the pinion nut







i hope this saves some people some money because times are tough .......
if anyone has anymore homemade tools PLEASE add them to this thred !!!!!! rich

Moderation crap, everyone should be able to see them now.

A couple lug nuts welded together makes a good 17mm allen socket for the swing arm bolts.

for the front and rear pinion nut, i always used to use a piece of square tubing that fit into the nut and over the pinion. 2" i think it was. may have to dremel a little from the inside of the tube to slip over the pinion. i then just used a pipe wrench on the square tubing. no pics as that was years ago but always worked great!

Cool thread I just found it

here is a "DEEP" well socket I made it's for the Sprocket nut on a Harley, I turned down the face of the socket for Max grip, I split a socket and add a piece of Steel pipe in the middle....simple & looks good too


BTW: I put rubber tubing over the main shaft for protection....it pays to use a Rubber :lol: .......... Hose!

Shock spring tool

Here's a shock spring compressor made out of some scrap tubing, angle iron and a few bolts. I made it so I could move the handle and hang it on the wall when not needed. The handle is also adjustable for about any shock I come across and I just used long bolts for the pins. If needed I can just make a different plate for larger shocks but for most the one works fine. I welded a couple washers on the outside of it to run a bolt through for safety when doing the tougher shocks.

Looks good toodeep. Looks a lot safer than a lot of the other contraptions I've seen in the past.
