    My list of tools that I bring with me on the bike when I ride it!

    1-10mm box wrench

    2-13mm box wrench

    3-¼ in ratchet wrench w/10mm&13mm socket

    4-6 in crescent wrench

    5-4way screw driver

    6-Small set of metric Allen wrenches

    7-Leatherman like tool

    With this small kit I feel I can darn near rebuild the bike if I have the parts!
    So I was just wondering,

    What’s on your list?

    So far my tool kit consists of a Bell 4-in-1 tool with 3 most used Allens and a #2 Phillips head, a Leatherman style pair of pliers and a Really Nifty multi-tool based on a Crescent Wrench!

    I had to build a trailer to carry all my tools as it became impractical to carry 25 lbs of tools in a backpack, and that was slimming down the tools carried to the bare essentials to complete a total engine rebuild on the side of the road, including spare cylinder, piston; crank and rod, magneto and CDI and kill switch.

    bell tool kit from the big "W", extra tire patches, 14,15,16mm sockets, wire ties, spare master and half links, small air pump, and my favorite, JB Stik!

    Oh yeah, small piece of speaker wire to use as jumper cables just in case my battery dies or I need to jump start somebody's Ford!!!!

    My engine is electric start only. Could suck to have a dead battery.

    .duh.No tools, their too heavy.

    My switchblade, some jets, and one of those nifty little screwdrivers that looks like a pen (like you used to get at a real autoparts store) for changing said jets.

    Ill sacrifice the push home for the speed before hand.
