Default Victory tools

After many hours of some relaxing reading since owning my Victory and being the first bike I've owned with ABS and EFI , I've been thinking although I have a warranty that will carry me through to 2023 , my dealer is 3 hours away. I would like to get some basic tools for the shop that will help to keep me going or at least if I have any issues I can phone the dealer and tell them what I have tested and found ( they are good that way ). I have been wrenching for many years so have the basics.
Can you fine people help me out with the must have's in the shop.
This is one I have come across but I'm not sure if its the proper one for checking the fuel pump





Thanks

Way I see it the pump works or doesn't. Doubt you will ever see anything in between.

A fork spring compressor for doing the fluid change correctly.
A fork fluid height tool with siphon.
A lift.
A scissors/platform jack.

I agree but I think easier to check with a guage, 1 of the 3 must haves for bike to run 1 gas , 2 compression, 3 spark.
I just want to have proper tools, my wife owns an 07 Kingpin as well.

Wickman

you don't say where you live so. Most auto stores will rent you a fuel pump tester. They all so have spark testers for less. Most good metric tool like sockets ratchet box ends a good multimeter a long with axle socket and allen wrench for front axle. When you go to hardware store for a nut guy 5 or 6 of them it will save you time.
Best advise is get rid of the Vic oil drain plug. Get a regular 6 sides drain plug

Vision I have pretty much have all the tools you mentioned, 1/4 inch upto 3/4 drive sockets, compression testers , leak down tests , torque wrenches etc . Iím in Ontario and have never had much luck renting any tools which is why prefer owning my own tools like the gauge and spark tester. I use a mityvac for oil changes so no dealing with oil plugs.

Not tools, but you will be glad you did this; Get and install a set of Speed Bleeders from speedbleeder.com They make bleeding stupid easy and you can do it solo. Watch the video on their site. I will never ever go back to those prehistoric ones. Give you a good, solid lever/pedal too. Encourages you to change brake fluid every 2 years or less, like you should.
