BMWs get a hand from CruzTOOLS

CruzTOOLS’ new T50 Star Wrench is designed specifically for late-model BMWs with single-sided swingarms. While recessed wheels, obstructing mufflers and saddlebags make it harder to reach bolts that fasten to the rear wheel, the T50 Star Wrench reportedly makes accessing these bolts easier. It measures in at 7.5”x4”, which makes it long enough to provide necessary torque but still fit into a tankbag or saddlebag for on-the-road repairs, the company says. “Our popular RoadTech B1 Tool Kit for BMW motorcycles has impressive capability, but due to torque requirements doesn’t provide the optimal approach for rear wheels on single-sided swingarm models,” stated Dan Parks, President of CruzTOOLS. “So we developed the accessory T50 Star Wrench as a compact, affordable, and pro-grade solution to the problem.”

MSRP is $16.95. www.cruztools.com.
