Honda 919 Tool Kit

Any body got a complete tool kit they want to part with?

I just got my new-to-me 07 off the truck and the tool kit is missing everything except an allen wrench and the helmet lock cable

I figure I'll definitely need the spanner wrench for rear shock preload. Is the spark plug wrench a needed item?

Thanks, CG

you can pick it up at your local dealer, at least the important parts like the plug and spanner wrench... most every thing else in the kit is complete garbage... well I take the back the axle bolt/nut wrenches have saved my arse twice now, just make sure you get a good 8mm wrench for you kit as well

PM'ed--I've got a toolkit. The spark plug wrench is pretty indispensable, IMO.

FYI, that IS the toolkit! An allen key and a helmet cable. More cost effective to not include tools. I went to my dealer after buying my 07 without a kit and they ordered one up for free. Don't really use it, but it just seemed strange to not have a toolkit with a new bike.

I was pretty disappointed in the "tool kit" or lack thereof. I was really glad I kept the kits from my last two bikes!

Let me get this straight. You bought a brand new 919 from a dealer and the tool kit included with the bike contained nothing more than one allen wrench and one helmet lock cable? Seriously, that is the tool kit?

If so, that's interesting. I definitely got the impression that at least some 919s (maybe earlier years?) had a tool kit with a spanner wrench for the shock, a spark plug wrench and something for the rear axle.

Maybe I need to go buy the "real" tool kit. It just doesn't seem right without the cheesy Honda tool kit that actually contains some useful bits.

Can anyone shed more light on this?

FlyCatcher is corrrect, that is the "tool kit". that's all I got when I bought my 91 new in 2007.

You can purchase a "real" tool kit. I'm sure a dealer can get you one.

Good luck with that. I ordered a lot of bits from the tool kit three weeks ago from Service Honda (using that same diagram). About the only thing not discontinued was the spark plug tool, which is worth it's weight in gold. Other than that, head to Home Depot or Sears and get some high-quality stuff.

I got the full kit with mine. It's a 2003. The spark plug tool and spanner are the most used from my kit. The other tools are crap, but as said before, could prove handy in a sticky situation.

Press Any Key To Continue.

I've read about 919 owners only gettting the cable and allen wrench before I got my bike. Asked the dealer about it and they said no toolkit available anymore, made me put my initials on this sheet of paper saying "no toolkit". Weird. I think this is a practice on the later bikes as production went down? So I gathered up my own tools from Home Depot and as for the rear spring spanner wrench I got a small piece of metal (progressive suspension?) that goes on the 3/8" ratchet and works well. The only thing I can't replicate is the sparkplug wrench. Does that mean it's impossible to remove the plug or does it just make life a lot more convenient?

Mine only had the helmet lock cable. I later bought the spanner and spark plug wrench.

My used 05 had a complete tool kit, including the sparkplug tool and the cables for the helmet locks....

Yeah. I ordered one from them over a week ago. After 2 emails, they finally shipped it yesterday. Not sure if my experience is typical or not. Their prices are good but I can't say anything good about their customer service.

When I worked at the dealer, I remember the kits changing from a real tool kit to nothing, I believe that happened in 2006. 2002-2005 all came with tools, later years, well, you're hearing about it here, not much.

I called Honda and talked to them when I discovered this, as there was no formal announcement, Honda's response to me was that most owners never used it anyway, it was a cost cutting measure.

Cost-cutting....Pah! it's not as if these are finely-crafted excellent tools! aside from a couple of useful items like the plug wrench, its a collection of crappy taiwan tools...total savings per bike, about 5-10 dollars. Have other bike manufacturers gone this route, too?

Well, fire the engines! Spur this iron space-pony on!

Got it today. Now I can set the preload on the shock. Woo hoo!

Really only wanted the spanner and the spark plug tool, but for a little more, it was worth it to get the kit. The bag is sort of a dark purple instead of black, though. Hmmm....



p.s. Honda's plan worked...they made more money on me by selling the kit separately :P

All early 919's came with a tool kit. Not sure what year Honda decided to eliminate it. I'm guessing 05' or 06.'

It's in the owner's manual. It's the helmet lock - kinda half-assed IMO. There is a hook under the back edge of the gas tank. You lift the seat, thread one end of the cable onto the hook, put the cable through your helmet D ring or maybe around the chin guard and then hook the other end of the cable under the tank and put the seat back in place. Now your helmet is locked to the bike.

Mine came with a full tool kit.

I fail to see how they can provide the bike without the shock adjuster!
