I do not understand the silver contraption. Most riders couldn't carry that with their existing touring gear, to the next state & then continue on their journey.
One needs 1/4 drive ratcheting inch pound (40-200" range) torque wrench with 8 & 10 mm sockets with 6" extension. Also a 18inch+, 1/2 drive 25-200 foot pound ratcheting torque wrench with 19mm socket. (turn it clear to the maximum to loosen the bolt! or use breaker bar.) Also the rotor holder wrench and the puller bolt. A proper gasket scraper is a good thing to have. A power drill & a couple 1/16th inch drill bits. A complete set of proper instructions (laminated paper & dvd).
Plastic bags & rags for coordinating parts & keeping them clean & a tarp would be nice if having to work outdoors. All of this in one traveling kit, I would think.
One can lean the bikes hard right, against a garage wall, storage shed, fence or tie from rafters or tree branch and not even need a drain pan for the oil.
Am I forgetting any 'Bare Necessities'?
So "What" is in the "DooHickey Tamer" kit? All I see is the Red rotor holder wrench. (And what might be a hacked off KACR for a knob?)
Modify at "YOUR OWN RISK"!
Still riding my 1987 KL650-A1. 85,000+ miles & counting
