JIS Crosspoint Screwdriver

Why: The Japanese Industrial Standard screw is commonly found on Japanese motorcycles, from side cover screws to those “guaranteed to strip” ones holding the master cylinder cover on. It looks like a Phillips screw, but it’s not and they will be damaged by a Phillips screwdriver if they’re tight.

TSM Technician says:
“Because stripped screws just suck. “

Spouse/Parent Argument: You don’t want me to be swearing every time I strip a screw do you?

Cost: About $9 on Amazon
