I agree with all. torque wrench... get it. CRITICAL on a motorcycle. I have a beam type, and when i had a clicker, i used the beam type to verify the clicker.
pros and cons...
beam type: EASY to calibrate. Just bend the needle beam to ZERO and go! Reliable choice, but hard to read in certian situations. Also you must be very smooth when pulling and dont let the needle hit the number face or it will be inaccurate.
clicker type: Set the ft/lb etc and GO! Great for confined jobs and faster. If it gets inaccurate you wont know it. Unload the wrench when done or it will get inaccurate.
