I recently had the need to purchase a T-Handle with a 1/4″ socket drive. It’s often handy when undoing smaller bolt like engine cover bolts, oil filter cover bolts etc.
I usually make a point of supporting local stores, so mounted my trusty steed and did the rounds. After looking around at the local hardware and specialist tool stores, I was unable to find what I needed. I know that Snap On has one, but as with all Snap On tools and accessories they are not cheap. KTM supply one but all the KTM dealers in town had to source “from over east”, same with most of the tool stores and this would take about 2 to 3 weeks to ship.
Going online I found a number of items but none were quite what I was looking for – I have very specific requirements – until I stumbled upon this one, from a mob in Burleigh Heads, Gold Coast Queensland. Exactly what I needed. Price – about a quarter of the price of the equivalent Snap On. Motion Pro T-Handle 1/4 inch drive from MXStore.
MXStore is the largest Australian online retailer of protective gear for motocross enthusiasts. They specialise in dirtbike gear, motocross gear, pasts and accessories. My dealings with them as small as they have been have been excellent. The team at MXStore are helpful and knowledgeable, exactly what is needed if you are on a quest for some dirtbike fun and require the appropriate safety gear.
Whilst BikeSAFE does not provide dirtbike or motocross training or instruction, we do find that many suppliers out there provide a product that may be essential in our arsenal of tools and technologies.
Here at BikeSafe we spend time with our students during their motorcycle lessons to show them some basics of motorcycle maintenance. No motorbike lessons are complete without showing riders the very basics. It is important when doing motorcycle training that your motorcycle instructor shows you what to check for as far as basic maintenance is concerned.
