Whether you’re hauling an assortment of tools in the back of your van for a weekend at the track, or you simply don’t have a garage to house a huge tool chest, a good toolbox brimming with tools will see you through. In fact, for a lot of regular motorcycle maintenance tasks—changing your oil, adjusting your suspension, removing wheels—the small array of tools that fits in a toolbox is all you’ll need.
Since you’re not a neanderthal, you’ll want to keep them in something other than an old duct-taped shoebox. Any old toolbox will do, but check out our selection for a few solid options.
Compact With Handy Drawers
The next best thing to a big red tool chest, this portable toolbox from Craftsman 3-Drawer Toolbox distinguishes itself with its chest-like drawers. While a cavernous box is nice and all, pull-out drawers keep spanners and sockets from butting heads.
Take It With You And Stack Multiple
If you’re bringing a cordless impact wrench to the racetrack to remove the axle nuts for tire/wheel changes, this Milwaukee Electric Tool Packout toolbox should entice. With enough room to hold a charger and your impact driver, you can keep all your battery packs and tools in one place. Sturdy plastic and a weather seal will protect your tools from the elements.
A No-Fuss, Simple Toolbox
Ah, yes, what we have here is your famous “Orange Folding Storage Box.” This tackle box-style number has room for your “various and sundries,” is as unpretentious, and will get the job done without fuss. Stainless steel latches do the securing, plastic handle does the handling, you do the wrenching.
