    Hey man, I take you know a lot about motorcycles. I am a first time rider, looking for my first bike. It'll be a daily commuter so want something that's not going to cost me arms and legs to run and maintain. What would you suggest? Anyone with any opinion will be helpful. Thanks.

    Great vid . Definitely sets me on the right track to complement the tools I have. The tool box is not a must, but a real advantage in keeping all your tools in order and clean. Like you I live in a colder climate (Edmonton Alberta) and need to winterize my bike. I want to be able to do as many things my self as posable and this video is a good starting point to get things going. Thanks. Cheers.

    For the sake of "BASIC" motorcycle maintenance this is an overkill of space, money and effort. I'm sure there are uses to all of them, but it's misleading to call such a tool-kit for basic maintenance.

    It just puts off amateurs, and even though you claim these pay for themselves, often times you're not factoring in your own time and effort poured into troubleshooting a problem – something a mechanic will do VERY efficiently (if you find a capable one) and can even explain to you in detail what's wrong and check with you on what is to be done about it.

    Having a much smaller toolkit that allows you to change tires, take temporary measures against punctures and check/change oils, chain etc (typical beginner maintenance) would be ideal for a basic guide.
