Got a wild hair up my butt and searched the forums for the original post that led me to buy a cbr600 tool kit. Here it is https://www.cbr250.net/forum/120192-post30.html

Forgive me if I'm in the wrong place.... but even though this is my first "REAL" motorcycle, the only tool I thought was important was a swing arm stand. I picked it up at harbor freight for 30 bucks, holds the bike level and steady and the rear tire off the ground to easily oil the chain...

From time to time the chain will need some adjustment. For that you'll need some wrenches. The CBRs in Europe come with a small toolkit that has all the necessary tools for that.

My computer is fighting Aids and Cancer in it's idle time, and yours?

Is that the only maintenance you plan to do on the bike yourself? If so that may be OK, although a tire pressure gauge and a source of pressurized air is also a basic necessity.

Just about any other maintenance procedure is going to require tools. You can't even remove the rider's seat to access the battery without a hex wrench.

I didn't fully explain my garage.... but im an ASE auto tech, 15 years experience. Got a FULL load of tools at work, and a heafty multi-toolbox setup at home.. between the two, almost any tool you'll ever need. Plus a moderate air compressor at home that hits 120 psi.
So i should've explained better that all I (me) needed was a stand.
Ive already changed the coolant, oiled the chain, and changed the brake fluid and i havnt had it a week!!
Maintenance?... Service intervals?... How else does my 1993 Subaru Legacy have 308,000 miles!!!
