WTB - 919 or comparable factory tool kit

Can't beat factory kits for a set of what you'd need most in a compact size that fits under the seat.

Not sure what other models would also work.

THanks

The only tools worth buying in the tool kit are the spark plug wrench and the spanner for adjusting the rear shock. I just ordered those two from my local dealer. The rest are just common tools like allen wrenches, screwdrivers, and pliers.

Yup. 6/8/10/12 and even 14mm are the go to wrenches, maybe even one of those small socket sets as well.

So, on my Concours, basically no spark plug socket in the entire world worked except for the one in the tool kit. Same here? I have a spanner that will work for the shock.

Some folks here have had some success with their own sockets and universal joints, but that spark plug wrench is worth it's weight in gold for plug #3. If you wait and change your plugs at the same intervals as valve clearance checks....any old setup will work.



The issue with #3 is there is normally a lot of stuff in the way, plus it's right under the frame.

i had no issues with #3 when i did my plugs... just needed the right lenghts of extension(s)

really all you gotta do is loosen it.... then use a piece of vacuum tube to slide over the end to pull it out.
