Roadside Tool Kit

Gent's,

What is your take on the Motion Pro Multi kit here:

http://www.motionpro.com/product/08-0161

Or, independently get a small socket set, extension, to make up for it? The way I see it, this versatile multi-tool, but is really in effect a replacement for a Socket Set like this:

Of course, there are "screw-driver" tips and some sockets. I have this kit under the seat of my 2013 F4 RR now:

Gerber Multi-Tool
assortment of Zip Ties
Pen-Torch Light
4 feet of fuel tubing (for siphon)
Full Allen Key set 1.5-6mm
Two sided screwdriver
Thin Pliars
8, 10,12,14,17 combination end wrenches
Razor blade & Clippers
Pressure gauge


Thanks,
Jim

As you can see in this thread http://gallery.mvagusta.net/donsy/bursigandothertools/ , I love tools, always room for another even if it just looks cool.

Sure and great tools Donsy. I'm putting tools in the bike for normal riding. I just ordered a tire-repair-kit, just in case of a flat.

That is probably one of the must useful things to pack Jim, most other repairs are hared to do next to the road.

Cell phone, creditcard, Automobile Association membership card, rear wheel nut socket, puncture repair kit.

And where possible, travel with at least one BMW GS rider, they like to carry their own body weight in tools!

FYI The MV F4 Original Tool kit that comes with new bikes has the basic stuff for roadside, less sockets that may come in useful. It even has fuse spares. Pricey replacement though at $130. . Looking at it now it also has chain adjust tool, extension bar and bit for oil fill plug. Its specific and very useful IMO.
I like the Motion Pro Kit. With a Leatherman Wave Ti with bit kit is about all I would be willing to carry on a daily basis

Wink road tools?

reality check....

in the stock tool kit you don't need the C-spanner and handle....like you're going to

adjust the chain on the road LOLOL

but definately a tire plugging kit like Monkey Grip ~$5 and a CO2 tire inflator and 3

CO2 cartidges (bicycle stuff, get the one that uses non threaded cartridges)

and a small pair of dikes to pull nails

if you're really anal carry a 55mm alloy socket......as for a torque wrench

just some thoughts

For multi day trips the c spanner & socket might not be bad idea. Small shops in the middle of nowhere might not have these items.
For day trips all I carry is my credit card.

Have gone on quite a few 1500+ mile trips, always carry a small kit in the luggage.
Local and day rides, like per Noel: tire repair kit, small multi tool. (small motorcycle battery jumpers also)
With the electronic fuel injection/computer bikes, cell phone and AAA membership.

On trip a carbureted Valkyrie ran out of fuel, so two of us rode to a gas station, bought a gallon can of fuel and brought it back.
The Honda carried the fuel can the rest of the trip! (broken fuel indicator )
