T-handled allen wrenches

I received my Shermworks jackstand today. So handy! In removing the wheel, I decided to use some T-handled allen wrenches that I had in my bicycle tools. They worked great for removing the chain adjusting screws which had to be backed all the way out. Ten dollars for a set of three - 4,5,6 mm at any bicycle shop.

05 DL650 "Big Red" (totalled)
93 DR350S (sold)

I agree with you and love my T-handle allens, but for 10 bucks you should have got the whole set...

Harbor Freight has these things on sale like every other month too. I paid $4.99 for my set.

t-handles are cool, but soooooo slow to use..

sorry for not giving the heads up, but there was a craftsmen sale a week ago...purchased a set of 3/8 driver hex sockets for 15 bucks...not sure what sizes included but it was like a 6 or so piece set.

Sounds like I need to go and get the SAE set to match.

I recently purchased a good set from a local tool(toy)store just for working on the Wee. They have the ball end on them though, which is really nice for working at angles. Nice foam grip and a heavy handle for a good feel, and guaranteed. If you have the Givi engine guards they work really good for the fairing bolts that are almost right behind them. Here's a link:

I find these handy too. I almost never use the T-handles anymore:

Perfect for removing those body panel screws quickly.
