My boyfriend recently bought a Honda Fury over the summer. I know he plans to do modifications on it this winter and i wanted to get him a tool set for christmas. I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT I'M LOOKING AT WHEN I SHOP!!! all of this stuff is like stereo instructions to me. i have heard you have to get tools specifically for the bike type. ANY help or suggestions would be VERY much appreciated!!!

Good quality metric tools. I am not aware of any tools that are specific to the Fury. A starting place may be to go to sears and check out a basic set of Craftsman metric tools. I would think you could get set of metric wrenches, sockets, allen wrenches etc. for under a $100.

A good torque wrench that measures in both ft-lbs and N-m.

Yeah I'm sure he'd rather have upgrades than basic hand tools. Get him an intake or exhaust or cool mirrors or.........etc etc
What's your budget?

Could also get him a motorcycle/ATV lift so he can raise the bike to change oil, just depends on how much work he's going to do himself, they cost about $100. Harbor Freight and sears both have good ones.

Basic on road kit ...

The $90 tool roll from the DIY Tool List is good insurance if your boyfriend wants to meet some Harley riders stuck at the side of the road :rolleyes: It probably won't get much use on the Honda beyond the peace of mind that it offers but it's a perfect fit for the leather fork bag very popular with chopper owners.

CruzTOOLS: RoadTech M3.

$70 from Honda



For something more useful around $300 and if he wants to ride in comfort a C&C seat will make a huge difference ...


and if you want to ride along ...

+1 on Craftsman tools, make sure you get the made in USA ones. For hex wrenches I prefer Bondhus (made in USA). Basically only get him tools made in USA, UK and Germany.

My wife likes to buy tools for me on occasion and bless her heart, it's usually something I already have :eek:. Guys tend to buy tools that they need when they need them and they lay in a dark drawer forgotten until something goes wrong or some new biker bling is acquired. Get hubby a comfy seat and he'll think of you every time he sits on his beast to go for a blast with the boys. If the ride is longer than 50 miles, Sarah, your name is guaranteed to come up in conversation :D.

I agree, it's hard to argue against a good seat. I'm very happy I have my C&C.

Get the largest one you can buy, XL or XXL or 1500cc and over because our bikes are so long. If you can get a genuine Honda cover made especially for the Fury and you can afford it that is probably the safest option, otherwise make sure you can return the cover if it's to small.

I have the Honda Fury Outdoor Cycle Cover # 08P34-MFR-200 size XXXL.
The fury is Honda's longest current bike. This cover is a disappointment in that it is a terrible fit unless your Fury is a full dresser (windshield, faring, bags & top case). The cover hangs like the sloppy loose cover that it is on a stock Fury but it will protect your bike. A king size fitted bed sheet does just as well for keeping the dust off and is easier to put on the bike.

Were I to buy another I would look to aftermarket and have the dealer fit one to my bike. I doubt there is one that fits properly.
The cover doesn't look anything like this on the Fury except for the logo and is cut so that the handlebars must be turned to the left.

If he likes tidy it will take a custom fitted hand sewn cover.
