...except a quality set of JIS screwdrivers. Those aren't Philips head screws on Japanse products...

Thanks EscCtrl!  I am kinda glad to hear about the JIS screwdrivers!  :047:  I got three or four JIS drivers in a set of Snap-On drivers I bought about forty years ago and have very seldom found a use for them.  I may have used them when I wrenched on Datsun forklifts, but I don't remember; that was late seventies!  I've had a few Japanese vehicles, but they sooo rarely break down!  Maybe I'll get to use them while I'm farkling my X...  :152:

You're welcome. If your drivers are that old, they may be made by Vessel if I'm not mistaken, and I believe they are the ones that came up with the JIS screws.

Hah, the days when you could fix a car at the roadside with pliers, strong coat hanger wire, hammer, flat blade and a squirt of wd40. Not a microchip in sight.....mind you, there was a LOT of times at the side of the road...... :745:
I know a bit late but all you need is duct tape and WD40--if it moves fix it with the tape if it doesn't move hit it with the WD40 :745:
It's not a big motorcycle just a groovy little motorbike
