Invest in the Triumph oil filter removal tool. It is used with a standard 3/8" drive ratchet.

You'll save yourself a lot of grief.

Why a Dremel unless the OP is thinking of doing some airbox mods or the like ?

Don't forget the most important thing in the toolkit- cable ties. You just never know when you'll need them...

Kit

Buy a mid range quality tool kit. Sockets, spanners,screwdrivers, allen keys plus a few other odds and sods. All are metric on bonnie. Kits tend to work out a lot cheaper than buying individually You will need to add bits as you go, like for the rear axle i use a whitworth socket!
Just dont buy cheap as quality will suffer and soft allen keys are worthless!
A haynes manual is good if you are new to wrenching. The triumph w/shop manual gives you all you need.
