from you on 12/02
"Going through the bike and making a list of tool as well. Will be posting up my toolkit towards the end of the month."

hoping you feel the pressure to finish the list.

So many are patiently waiting (or not). :002:

Haha. Ahhhh. Well I bought a Wera mini 1/4 metric drive set that covers most sizes (save for 9mm/ 14mm): Knipex pliers, some quick steel, radiator fix and a few wrenches. Got the factory tools for the axle nuts and am working out a clever fix for the front axle hex. Have a mini compressor, mini-volt meter,  tubeless tire puncture kit and Im hoping thats a wrap. The goal is to have it all fit under the seat. I think itll work. I also have a chain tool, and my chain snapped in Mexico once, so regardless of how unlikely the recurrence, Ill mosy likely find a corner for it. The front cowls on the tank have a lot of inner space for lightweight stuff. I may make a false door for each side.

Japanese are very superstitious, so they'd never use a 13 size socket. In general, I believe that most sizes they use are even N mbers.
I remember that I had to use 14 quite a lot disassembling the X, but cannot remember where exactly.
Never seen a size 9 bolt on the x so far

I didnt know that about the culture. Very cool. Im pretty sure there were 9mm bolts for the head studs. I could be wrong. Will have to add a 14mm to the baggie. Thanks for the input.

Ideally the kit would allow me to do mostly everything on a RTW trip.

Well, they could just use a 1/2 socket to avoid the dreaded number 13.

Its always interesting to me how superstitious people can be. Even here in Honduras they make skyscrapers without a 13th floor.

If superstition informed Japanese engineering principles and practices, everything would be held together by 7mm fasteners...or multiples thereof :008: 14 symbolizes 'double togetherness'

twice the torque perhaps? :001:

or 3.5mm allen head at one-half the torque?

3.5 symbolizes a misfit and no togetherness? :084:

hi all been reading up on tools for my X does anyone know
were to buy a tool tube? as I cant fit a rear rack because
my foot would catch the rack when getting on and off the
bike as I have short legs and find it hard to get on or off
my bike now. a tool tube would be good to put some bits
in like a tyre repair kit spray can for longer rides.
 
thanks. 
Bones..          :305:

Someone on here has 'tool tubes' on their bike, may come up with a search.  A small tailpack might be easier to get a hold of, and would fit neatly on the back of the seat.  Again someone posted a picture of a really neat one on their bike.

I just have a set of spanners, some allen keys, a multi tool plus a few zip ties, electrical connectors, wire and insulating tape added to the Honda kit under the seat.  If it needs more than that, the AA can take it away!!   :015:

here is where I got mine.
The price is cheap enough but shipping bumps it a bit.
Still worth having to me.

Not sure if shipping to Europe would be worth it though.
