I'm good to go on personal survival, my question is: Planning to go far, trying to keep it light, and wanting to eat your cake too, what do you carry in your repair kit? 2 inner tubes- not just a patch kit? Etc etc. I'd like to hear from everyone- carry nothing to carry half the shop.
MTB Moto- I like that list. "a few spark plugs"? I've got a 49cc 4-stroke with a Grubee stage 3 gearbox, do I need to do that? Some
Not bagging on 2 strokes, they do foul plugs at times, 4 strokes less chance, but from years of racing Motos I always carry at least one spark plug and wrench, anything beats walking out.
A spark plug is usually very simple to get at and change, so first line of attack when my motorized bicycle or Moto dies is to check for spark, having a wrench and new plug is perfect. Small and easy to store. I throw mine in a plastic bag so it doesn't get wet.
I guess I could add carrying a little extra weight in...
...is better than pushing a lot of extra weight out!
