    The one thing that I have always used from the stock tool kits, has been the spark plug socket/wrench. They are handy little things to have.

    Oh, and I still to this day, 31 years later, use the dial air pressure guage from my CX500Turbo tool kit, lol.

    look after your bike..neglect at your peril .

    [Item] [Part Number] [Price]

    SPANNER (8X10) 718971 $1.72

    SPANNER (12X14) 2922615 $1.74


    Won't you need another 12mm x 14mm wrench, so you can tighten both nuts on the chain adjusters?

    Yes, the spark plug wrench is extremely handy, and I did put a pencil/stick tire gauge in there. Wish I had a cool gauge like the one you have!

    It might be a good idea to have a second 12 mm wrench to tighten the chain adjuster, but I want to have the bare-***-minimum number of tools, but at the same time, be able to remove body parts and tighten the chain. I decided against getting a spark plug socket, since the service interval is so long, the possibility of a fouled plug is virtually zero.

    Another thing I have done is add RV coverage to my AAA Plus membership, that adds motorcycle towing up to 100 miles.

    As far as towing coverage goes I have found the MRF Roadside Assistance package to be the best value out there by far. $19.95 a year and they will tow up to 100 miles at no cost (Unless they have changed their terms recently). Covers one rider riding ANY motorcyle. You can also opt for a version that covers 2 autos and 2 motorcycles for $46.95.

    You do not have to be a member to buy their Roadside Assistance package. I looked at adding AAA RV coverage but it was outrageously expensive considering it is based on towing an RV as compared to a motorcycle.

    One thing I use every day is the cable strap to hang my helmet off the hook under the pillion seat while on the ferry. My Shoei Quest doesn't fit in the frunk and the top box is mostly full with my work bag/lunch/random stuff. Glad at least that came with.

    When a unit comes into a dealership, the tool kit is placed in so many different places inside the crate, that it is not uncommon for the tool kit to not be put in the bike at delivery. Check with your dealership, he usually has some of these kits in a draw somewhere at dealership I'm sure he will sell you cheap. If not any dealer can order tool kits from
