For "cheap" tools I use Harbor Freight, or Texas Tool traders off Hempstead and Bingle.

Better tools Wholesale Tool on Pinemont or Northern. Must have been a slow day because they usually have more than enough help at the 290 store.

It is required that you safety wire your bike when you race. Not for track days.

Cycle Gear usually has them in stock. I'd call first though.

I have a pair if you need to borrow.

I got a pair during lunch.
I went to the Tool Depot on Fry Rd. Yesterday looking for the 36mm standard socket needed for my tripple tree.
They gave me an impact socket for about 8.00

I brought it back to them today and asked for a safety wire tool.
The 6" tool was about 13.00

He swapped the tool for the socket with no extra charge.

Great guy and a nice place to find tools

I know you got it handled already, but when searching for those things, it is helpful to search for "aircraft wire pliers" or "safety wire pliers" too.

If you want the real deal get "Milbar" brand safety wire pliers and FWIW they are an ISO 9001 company.
