Stock toolkit enough?

376 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  DarkWhiteChocolate
Is the stock toolkit supplied with the bike enough for longer trips? Can you pull a wheel with those tools?

Will also carry leatherman, gorilla tape, spare fuses, tire puncture kit and zip ties.

What additional tools do you carry along on longer trips?

Always a tube of KY gel. Just to help change tires馃ぃ. Ok.... Pump unless your kit has one. Spare GPS, Fuse and paper maps. Always and always water. Cash to compensate the locals should they need to fish my bike out of Hellawie so it can be towed if it breaks down and finally...... a prayer. Those are my complete travel insurance. After then, everything else becomes an adventure as it should be in the first place.

And you will stll break down and realise that all those tools are meaningless. You had used the #10 wrench and packed it away. But for that darn wrench, You could have been there a day earlier and missed the family that took you in or that stranger the is now like a real brother.

Enjoy the expedition.

Should mentioned it鈥檚 not a RTW trip. More (initially) around the Nordics where I live. But will get some paper maps, good backup if mobile breaks down. Cash is handy, and will include.

Haven鈥檛 heard about KY gel before - so I googled it. 馃 Was quite quickly apparent what the main use of KY gel was. 馃榾 Alternative products that popped up was 鈥 Fist IT and Slam dunk. 馃槀

Thanks for the tips!

Cheers,
I tossed the stock toolkit in the take-off parts bin. I now carry a tire plug/rope kit, tire inflator, a Wera bit set, a multi-tool, jb weld putty, gorilla tape, a few sockets and small wrenches, zip ties, tow strap, and a few other small things in my rear tool box.
