My stock tool kit has never left the bike. I dont even know whats in it.

This is my kit, it goes everywhere my bike does.

-double ended wrench, one side fits the front axle, the other fits the rear
- double ended gearwrench 12mm /13 mm for tube valvestem/ axle adjuster
- needlenose pliers with wire cutters
- 10mm combo wrench
-Tube repair kit/valvecore wrench/tire pump/C02 air charge/psi gauge
spare tubes/tire irons
-6in1 screwdriver
- metric allen wrench set.
- small needlenose visegrips
- small reg.visegrips.
- small cresent wrench
-1/4 drive metric from 8mm-13mm set w/ rachet and 3 inch extention.
- roll of elec. tape/zipties/safety wire/ elec. wire/ orange and blue wirenuts/ a small pencil with duct tape rolled onto it/ extra metric bolts /nuts /spare fuses.
-Original headlight buld wrapped in papertowels stuffed in replacements package.


maybe some other stuff I'm sure. But, thats the jist of it. (fingers crossed) Thats all I ever needed.


Also have a spare clutch cable too. some day when I have it far enough apart, I'm going to zip tie it in where it belongs.

I keep all the tools in a bag on the front fairing this pic shows the old bag, The new one is brown camo and a lil bigger


The Clutch cable and headlight bulb are stuffed into this case.

Sweet Setup, I need to get one of those wrenches for my axles..I swear I feel like I am carrying my whole garage with me and always still find something I don't have. HEHEHE..just part of the learning curve..

Some guys are carring two wrenches for the front and rear. I've never needed an extra wrench for the bolt side. It's always come loose right from the nut. If I did, I got the cresent wrench for that.
But tools is tools... and to much is never enough

Don't forget your tire spoons and a small plastic tube/bottle of dish soap. You can lube the bead with it and clean your hands before you grease your gloves.
