You shouldn't need a tons of tools to start - I removed the engine in my driveway with a cheapo bike lift, and that's about the only major tool you really need. Everything else is just sockets and such.



I have the nice tools too, but I tend to keep some harbor freight cheap tools on the bike. After you rebuild everything and use anti seize on the bolts, the cheap tools are good to use on the side of the road. All I have is a ratchet, and a set of deep well sockets, a multi-tool and another pair of pliers, plus some wire and a wire stripper. When I work on the bike to mod it or fix things I like to try to use the tools on the bike, to make sure that if I ever broke down, my current tool kit could fix the problem.
