I need to buy a torque wrench for my SV650s so I can do most of the small service jobs myself, can someone recommend a decent torque wrench under $100 that has all the torque ranges needed by the various bolts on the SV? I htink the max is 145 N.m (105 lb-ft) for some engine sprocket nut (which I wont be touching).

Thanks

Beam types are good and cheap, treat them gently, watch out for not bending the indicator.

I have a digital type, not electronic but the turn the dial type and I think I paid 79 bucks for it.
I have had it for twenty years and every once an a while I put it on a bolt that has a known torque to it and it works.
I like mine because it 'clicks' when the torque is reached. Now they sell them for 59 bucks!

Get a half inch drive one as that is the drive that does most of the heavy work. I would not spend more than 75 bucks unless you do this stuff for a living. Spend an extra 15 bucks for a case for the wrench to protect it.

Sears linky ...

I bought a nice clicky one at Walmart...some crappy off brand, but it works like a charm, and was $30 or so. If I had known I could get a Craftsman beam one for that price, though, that's what I wouldve gotten.

craftsman tools are the bomb.

I use a Craftsman 1/2 inch, 0-150 ft/lbs, beam-type torque wrench. I'm partial to the beam's because they're cheap, and should they ever get out of calibration you can bend the beam back to zero.

this is the best tool store! i have one 15 min from my house and i got to say great! and if you pay attention alot of their "cheap" tools have warranties,available warranties,or on hand tools some have lifetime warranties. im sorry but being a auto mechanic any tool that can be replaced there for free is worth the cheap price!
