Default specialty Tools

I want to start doing my own work on my 2012 Vegas and 2012 Cross Roads. I know there are some "special tools" required. For example, the shock spanner for the Vegas (I know I can Wing it, but in my experience the right tool is always the best). Anyone know where I can get whatever specialty tools I need or want? A web site?

https://www.google.com/#hl=en&biw=13...8e6c0537415744 it is just hard to say ...You can spend a lot on certain tools. Sears always has a good selection to start with. But specialty tools you have to hunt and find when the problem arises..

I bought the $40 belt tension tool shortly after I bought the bike. I put the tool in a safe place. I don't remember where. dammit.

I bought the $40 belt tensioning tool on Amazon for $21. It said for Harley Davidson but all that don't matter. They work the same. Pound rated internal sping, rubber o-ring on the outside to mark your deflection. Picked up the spanner wrench for the suspension on Amazon also, I think I paid $8 or so for it. Bike lift is almost a must have for a DIYer. Harbor Frieght for under $99, used it several times already, works great.

I bought one a few weeks ago with a coupon for this price. Nice lift, easy to setup.
