what are the lowest and the highest torques i would need. all the available tools here are too strong. or do you have a small and a big torque wrench? is it even necessary to have one?

Decent low range torque wrenches are very expensive and not really necessary on the MT just develop the feel, not a good idea to try and use one for both ends of the range either.
Also worth considering that clicky type micrometer torque wrenches can and DO go out of calibration very easily so can and have caused damage, there is nothing on the MT you can't torque with a good old reliable and cheap torsion bar torque wrench like below :)
