Picked these up yesterday on a trip to Harbor Freight & wonder why I waited so long. Will be a great help when doing the hoses on those hard top reach ones on the Wing.

Actually went on a bit of a shopping spree & came home with all this for just under $75.

I've gotten a lot of use out of a set of those hose pliers from HF. I bought a set about five years ago and they've come in handy for working with hose but almost as much for shifting wiring harnesses and cables around without damaging them like a regular plier would. If you have to reach into the innards of something to adjust the position of a wire or harness these things are the trick. Good for guiding and routing throttle and clutch cables too.

Thanks for the offer Peterbilt but I think I'll pass. About all I could afford is $0.60.

You guys are lucky to have HF. They won't ship to Canada. We do have a company here that is similar called Princess Auto but the prices are not as good and those little 4x4 trailer frames are now a thing of the past here in Canada. Nobody sells them here anymore. There is a motorcycle shelter that I want & hope to have save by next fall that is in Indiana but I will have to find someone around here with a us address that goes down there every once in awhile that will pick it up for me. Or some member that drives truck up here to the west coast of Canada that wouldn't mind picking up a 50# parcel that looks like a tent bag.:cheesygrin::cheesygrin::cheesygrin::praying:
