Twempie,

FWIW, Two notes,

First, I decided to not carry the 3 mm Allen wrench because the only time I used it was quite deep in some maintenance that I thought I would never do on the road.  And though it doesn't weigh much, it is more weight...

As for your 4 & 5 mm Allens, I notice you are carrying the ball end style.  I do too, but I also carry one of each size in a standard Allen.  These are often useful as handles when trying to start the screws.  I know more weight but I think these are worthwhile.

The Motion Pro "pasty" that I carry has 4 and 5 mm Allens that I use in a way as you describe.
I also added the Motion Pro torx heads to that little kit, so it's useful for my BMW.

The 3mm is used to adjust my throttle lock. I knew I had it in there for a reason.
