Good thread and the only thing I can think you missed is a feeler gauge and I always have rtv high temp gasket maker and a tap and die set. Alot of people always say I don't need a tap and die set ill never use it but a couple of times (including me lol) but just wait till you break one of those stupid 8mm or 10mm bolts off in the motor then u wish you bought a tap and die set lol. And a craftsman Atv/motorcycle jack is awsome for tall people or anyone for that matter and a good stool the jack puts the motor area or the Atv at face level witch is perfect. Anyway if anyone's thinking of doing a rebuild you HAVE to have a good set of tools then get your specialty tools.

thanks..i did mention feeler gauges !..lol. but i did forget hondabond or yamabond for sealant !..lol. I NEVER USE RTV SEALANT !..it gets hard..and breaks off into the motor..where hondabond or yamabond is semi-drying liquid sealant. and i wish i had bought my craftsman atv floor jack many moons ago !..yeah..i'm 5'-11''..it's tough on my back and legs..my stool is great...as well as my atv floor jack now !!..love it..best 100 or so bucks i've ever spent !..lol.

Same here I got my jack on sale for 70 bucks and I didn't no that rtv dose that thanks for the info. Yea the jack and the stool are the best investment if made Atv wise. I work on atvs all year long so it gets hard when your backs all cramped up from bending over and I'm 6'-4' so yea bending over sucks

Bearing pullers come in handy some times to but it sucks when someone brings you an Atv and they say it needs new wheel bearings. By the time they found out it needed bearings it was because the tires about ready to fall off in that case a bearing puller is useless and your back to the hammer and a chisel or 90% of the time when there's no bearings left but the inner and outer race then its time to pull out the dremel with cutting wheels lol

Great info. Read it a few times. With my 91 TRX300fw rebuild, I tried to think of all the parts that I would need and the information and advice given from some of you out there. I ordered parts early before I was ready for them and still had to order more as the 91 needed more and more parts. One thing that I can advise those out there that want to rebuild from basically scratch is....be prepared to have deep pockets. LOL. I tried to do this on budget.....well......that went out the door. But my gal is worth it. Enjoying it, even though I get frustrated ALOT.....LOL.
