Stop stripping out screw heads! If you own a motorcycle (or car, bicycle, camera, etc) that is made in Japan, you need a set of Japanese Industry Standard (JIS) screwdrivers.
- Sold as a complete set of 5, or as a set of 3 of the most common sizes (#0, #1, #2), as well as individual screwdrivers
- Made in Japan
- #00 - 5" long (mostly used for electronics)
- #0 - 7" long (commonly used on carburetors & throttle bodies)
- #1 - 8" long (common size on motorcycles & vehicles)
- #2 - 8" long (most common size on motorcycles & vehicles)
- #2 Stubby - 3 1/4" long
We all know how frustrating it is when the head of a screw is damaged to the point it cannot be removed. Many times this occurs because an incorrect screwdriver is used.
Anything manufactured in Japan uses a JIS type screw head, not a Phillips. JIS and Phillips tips look very similar, but upon further inspection the JIS head is quite different. The point of the JIS tip is shorter, and the angles are sharper. A Phillips tip is designed to "cam out" or spin in the screw after a certain amount of torque, which is why the edges are more rounded. Using a Phillips screwdriver in a JIS screw usually results in a few swear words and having to drill the screw out.
Most of the time, a JIS screw can be identified with a dot or punch mark on the head of the screw. Another way to tell if a screw is JIS is if a JIS screwdriver can hold the screw horizontally without the screw falling out.
So whether you have a Honda motorcycle, Toyota truck, Canon camera, or anything else produced in Japan, a set of JIS style screwdrivers will come in handy.

It's amazing what you can do with the right tool. With these no more stripping screws. I have yet to round off a screw head.
That's great to hear, thanks for your feedback on the drivers! I appreciate your business Michael!
Hands down a absolute must have. If you own a Japanese dirt bike, you need this. I didn’t know how much of a difference these make. You’ll never have a stripped out screw head again because the “regular” phillips head screwdrivers are the cause so do yourself a favour and pick up a set of these already.
P.S.: So sorry Cameron for the late review but absolutely best set of screwdrivers 👍
I appreciate the detailed review man! It's great to hear positive feedback on the screwdrivers, happy that they're working well for you. Thanks for your business!
I have yet to use them, but shipping was very fast. I know these will save me time and frustration with motorcycle repair in the future. Thank you
I appreciate the review James! Thanks for your purchase.
I am very happy with these screw drivers. They are balanced in the hand which is something I didn’t expect, but noticed right away. Plus, there’s the added bonus of them not camming out/stripping the screw heads like Philips screw drivers do. If you own a Japanese bike then you need a set of these. The price is right and shipping is fast. Don’t second guess it just buy em’
Thanks for your thoughts on the screwdrivers! Always great to hear positive feedback on the products. I appreciate your business Nick!
