I know I need to get a wrench. I can get a 0-80lbs OR 20-200lbs.

Basically, if nothing needs to be torqued to greater the 80 ft-lbs, I'm just going to get the first one.

Anyone know?

go with the 0-80.

there are several bolts on your sv that are in the 10-20 range, these bolts are frequently used/adjusted.

and as far as i know, there are only 1 or 2 bolds(maybe) that will require anything more than 80, and these are torqued infrequently

Hope you don't plan on replacing your chain and sprockets at home. I'm not sure why you'd want to use a torque wrench for things under 20ft/lbs but more power to you.

Ideally you would have both, but the smaller one is probably going to cover a wider range of things. Do get a clicker style one as opposed to the needle and scale type, I'm pretty sure they are more accuratep and def easier.

Just getting one because I figure it is needed. I needed it for the motoslider install but just guessed. Going to be doing the fork springs and rear shock swap and I'm sure I will need one then. Was just curious if over 80 ft-lbs was common.

If you are looking at the torque wrenches at Harbor Freight, note that the 20-200 is actually INCH POUNDS and the 0-80 is FT POUNDS. Very different.
