Why do it?
Well, a bike that drips oil and fluids all over the place isn’t good for a start, as in the heat of competition it attracts muck and, well, it’s just not good. It also reflects on your abilities as a mechanic or caring owner. Okay, just because the bike doesn’t drip oil everywhere doesn’t mean you’re an ace with spanners but it’s a good starting point.
One spanner if you’re a machinist, three spanners if not.
