SONORA, Calif. – CruzTOOLS is offering wallet-friendly tool kits made specifically for powersports vehicles.

SPEEDKIT compact tool kits come in three different variants that cover almost all makes and models of powersports vehicles:

  • SKJAS (pictured), which is for Japanese motorcycles and all makes of ATVs, UTVs, snowmobiles and personal watercraft;
  • SKEU, for Euro motorcycles; and
  • SKHD, made for Harley-Davidsons.

The kits are priced at $32.95 retail.

Each kit includes technician-grade tools like wrenches, nut drivers, a two-in-one spark plug socket with lever, a multi-bit screwdriver, star bits, hex wrenches, a tire pressure gauge and a pair of slip-joint pliers.

Speedkits were created as alternatives to OEM tool kits. “Due to continuing cost pressures, manufacturers have scaled back significantly on OEM tool kit quality and in some cases eliminated it altogether,” the company said. “It’s also not uncommon for used vehicle purchasers to find the original tool kit missing and then shocked to learn OEM replacements cost from $60 to $120.”

SPEEDKITS come in clamshell packaging to help dealers easily showcase them on slatwall and gridwall, along with freestanding displays. CruzTOOLS products are available through Parts Unlimited and Tucker Rocky, among other distributors, and there is no minimum order requirement.
