    The other day the bike was in for a minor job and I saw the mechanic using a mini ratchet. Great for the confined spaces and easily transportable for the bike @ £12.99

    P.S. It’s worth pointing out that the torx bit can also be fitted into the bottom of the handle, so that it can be used as a straight driver as well as a ratchet wrench.

      Always useful those small rackets. I carry on the bike a Beta Mini Set. Got it some years ago in a closing down sale, couldn't resist the price. So glad I bought it because I use it all the time on the bike. Handy for all the fairing screws etc.

          I carry one of these Facom sets, yes it is expensive but it has so many useful bits in such a small size and great quality and guarantee .

          But I have to say the micro one the OP linked to, looks very good and might work where nothing else would.
