919 tool kit

Mine didnt come with a tool kit, and as we all know theres not much room under the seat there. SO what do you'll think are some essential tools i should carry under there. or should i just buy a general kit off of ebay.

their are a lot of kits out there, I can't remember where I saw a nice one but if I do I'll post it. I have a folding one with sockets and hex wrenches on it that seems to work well.

retard - I'm sure he's got a set of proper box-end wrenches hanging on the wall in the gardage. We're talking emergency style functionality in a small space here.

Make sure you add a spark plug wrench to whatever kit you make.

A swiss army knife, tinker style with pliers instead of scissors. In 50.000 miles I haven't had to do a thing to the bike with it. I have, however, used the spark plug socket from the tool kit and brother does it make the #3 plug easier to get to! I don't carry the tool kit with me when I ride.

Rob

If it has already been done, it is safe to assume it is possible to do it.
On the other hand, if it has not been done never assume it is impossible to do it.

I've had my eye on that tool. I replaced my plugs at 8K and that #3 plug made me wanna punch a hole in the wall. This settles it. I'm buyin' it

What toolkit are you referring to? I bought a brand new 2007 919 with 0 miles and the toolkit with it consisted of 1 allen wrench! The dealer said that is all they come with now, not even a spanner for rear spring pre-load. Cheap bastards!

Older 919's came with a tool kit. Honda discontinued the tool kit (with the purchase of the bike) in '06 I think.

When I bought my '02 used from the dealership where I used to work it didn't have the tool kit, but I found a complete one on EBAY about a year ago and managed to get it. Suffice it to say that the quality of the tools is horrendous, but the spark plug socket is essential for getting at the #3 plug.

I'm seriously considering loaning out the plug socket to any WT members who may need it. Since I installed NGK Iridiums I won't be needing it any time soon, so let me know if you're changing your plugs and I'll ship it to you. Just remember to send it back when you're done with it or possibly sending it on to someone else in need. Who knows, it may bounce all over the world!

I just ordered the 02-05 toolkit from Honda. $42 and it has several end wrenches, spanner, plug wrench, screwdrivers, and allens. A little high for pot metal, but, I found,I wanted, I bought.

Thanks for the offer Rob. I also installed the NGK Iridiums just 2K miles ago, so hopefully I dont need it for quite a while either. Anyone else tho...this is a great idea!
