This spoke torque wrench is one of the most handy tools in my garage. Have used it 10 times already. Very affordable compared to other brands. My only complaint is that it should come with more tips or at least come with the common sizes.
Got sick of having loose spokes or over-tightening them. Finally sprung for the torque wrench. Makes setting spoke torque a breeze. Wrench seems high quality, and I have had no issues using it on all three bikes. I like that it's adjustable and comes with different size attachments. Only bummer has been trying to torque my buddy's KTM with Moose wheels... the kit didn't have an attachment which fit it.
bought to check my new excel wheels on my 11' YZ250F. Worked great and helped me set all my spokes to the correct torque. I found all my spokes were loose. Would be nice if it came with more wrenche sizes. I couldnt use on a friends 01' YZ80.
nicely built and came with all tips needed to do my stock yamaha factory wheels and my after market excels with star type nipples.
WOW were my spokes loose, wont ride without check the spokes anymore in the future its just too easy with this torque wrench.
For some reason the KTM manual refers to the thread size (M4.5) on the spoke instead of the nipple size.
The correct size spoke wrench for your KTM is a 6.8mm which actually is not included in this set.
We do offer a Spoke Torque Wrench similar to this one, I would recommend the Fasst Company Torque Spoke Wrench Kit
( http://www.motosport.com/dirtbike/FASST-COMPANY-TORQUE-SPOKE-WRENCH-KIT )
or if you didn't need the whole kit you could order the Fasst Company Adjustable Torque Wrench
( http://www.motosport.com/dirtbike/FASST-COMPANY-ADJUSTABLE-TORQUE-SPOKE-WRENCH )
and then just order the 6.8mm Fasst Company Spoke Head separately
( http://www.motosport.com/dirtbike/FASST-COMPANY-OPTIONAL-HEAD ).
If you have excel wheels and spokes on your 2005 Yamaha YZ125 then yes this will work perfectly for your. It also includes 4 other size spoke wrench fittings (6.1mm, 6.3mm, 6.5mm, 6.7mm) really it should work with the spokes on just about any full sized motocross bike.
Hi, I have this product already but I need a 6.8mm which the kit does not have, can you buy the head individually? I noticed that the Fasst brand that you also sell, the 6.8mm can be bought seperately, will this work in the Excell brand?
