What affordable torque wrenches are you guys using? and it seems that most of these are too big for the bike.

 

Digital vs Click ?

 

Your thoughts appreciated.

I have a few different wrenches. Warren & Brown 3/8" deflecting beam ( 320500 ) for small work. It is a dual signal. Also a 1/2" version ( 323500 ) for heavier jobs. Both Australian made.

My favourite is a Norbar 1/2" 15003 model 20-100Nm

Hey mate...do you happen to know the torque ranges on the T700? Min and Max...would one wrench do the job?

Mine are all Warren & Brown deflecting beam types.

3/8 and 1/4 inch sizes should be adequate for bikes.

 

But I don't use them on every bolt. Only important stuff like  head bolts, exhaust manifold etc where thermal heat cycling is a thing. Also the very rare (these days) diff rebuild, auto trans bands etc. Or when it's difficult to feel the fastener, like the triple tree clamps.That's how I've rolled for 20+ years. If you don't like it, go $%&^ your self 😉

I use a 1/2" drive Craftsman click type that is circa 2005.  Back then there was some testing done in some magazine and for the money it was a great option.  I can't advise if the new Craftsman torque wrenches are as good but I've been very pleased with it.

 

I also have a Snap-on 3/8" Techwrench that has been phenomenal, although you can't leave batteries in it or they drain.  This one was purchased in probably 2007 and was slightly used when I got it.  But I like it a lot.  Here is the item:
