Recently learnt this the hard way ~ so I made a video
Definitely important to have to avoid stripping a number of important fasteners (headlight, brake fluid reservoir cover, etc .). Don't ask me how I know.
I'd also add to invest in a set of quality Allen keys. The cheap ones I've been using do not fit 100% and will strip out the bolts after only a few uses.
Didn't know they could wear out so fast! Good to know!Great video, Bikerchicken.
Nothing like the right tool for the job.
And as Bklyn, said, invest in quality tools. Especially ones where fit and the quality of the material matters, like screwdrivers and Allen keys. Soft metal or slightly off-size makes a big difference.
And tools also wear over time. Wear doesn't much affect a hammer but makes a big difference with drivers. I have a set of old 3/8 drive allens that were high quality years ago but are total junk now as they are too worn.
