    There's others too. Get the set but make sure it has the T27, most sets don't include that size.

    as glider said they use some others but t-27 isnt usually in the sets but is the most important.. if ya got the bike there when snap on is there ask um to run out and see how it fits some are not as tight as the others .. i swaped couple t-27 till i could find one that fit right

    Be careful what you buy off the Snap on truck.A 3/8"/1/4" torx socket set will run you near $300.When I say be careful Im reffering to the Blue point sets they sell at a much cheeper price.Some of the blue point stuff carries a 1 year or no warrenty at all.They sell bit sets in torx which may be the best bang for your buck.The Snap On bits are warrentied for life and the Blue points are not.Also note that some of the torx bolts on your scoot are not torx but torx plus.The sizes are the same ...T8,T10,T15,20,25,27 etc. There is a difference between torx and torx plus.While a std. torx say a T30 will fit in a T30 torx plus bolt head, the tips are pointed vs. squared off on a torx plus and can strip out the bolt.
