Halfords ones are grand,get the bigger one with the open ended cups and you'll do most heads with it. Unless it's a CBR 250 or something with tiny valves

The wimmins were watching some dancing sh1te so I retired to the garage
I used a 14mm 3/8dr long reach socket with a slot cut on the side.
I made it to do valves on a honda 90 but it'll do pretty much anything.

That's a handy homebrew tool there, nice job. What's the Green Meanie in the background?

I live a bit off the beaten track so traipsing around town looking for tools can get very time consuming,so I've learned to make do and mend.
Redneck engineering so to speak :lbhbh:
The green yoke is a 1989 ZXR 750H1.Bought it in 99 and can't see myself parting with it any time soon :cool3:
