Dumb 919 question

So my 919 came missing the tool kit. I ordered up the tools from a Honda dealer just to make the bike complete. I did read the manual that was included with the bike. What I don't understand is how does this silly helmet cable work? Never seen anything like it and don't understand how it attaches to the helmet and then the bike. I only ordered on cable! Did the bike come with two. so educate me please

Pretty worthless. You have to remove and replace the seat to lock it.

I use a trigger lock. My local police department gives them out for free. Several places to loop it on the bike.

Depending on what year your bike is it likely wasn't included at all... I'm pretty sure with the later year 919's they didn't even have a tool kit straight from Honda

Wow, I thought incorrectly it was missing. Honda lists all the tools as a kit for the 2007 model. Well they were not very expensive. They came in the mail yesterday.

The spark plug tool is worth is weight in gold. So much so that I kept it when I sold the bike. Good thing since the bike was stolen less than 12 hours after I sold it.

True. Tool kit was not included with 2007. I also thought mine was missing until I investigated. Did you order one from Honda? What was cost? I may order one. Thanks.

I ordered from Babbittsonline they are a Honda dealer. You have to listing and order each tool separate. The cost was about $50.00 but ordered a new ziplock for the manual because the one with my bike was torn and I got the bag for the tool kit as well. At this point in my life I plan to keep the bike for a long time and thought it is good enough condition I would try to make it complete, did not know they didn't' come with the kit. If I had known I would only have gotten the spanner to adjust the rear shock, even though I am thinking to upgrade the shock at some point.

Looking at my order it was larger than just the tools - depending how many you order - individualaly they are cheap but they do add up. I ordered them all and it was closer to $70.00 - just wanted to correct the earlier post- sorry for any confusion

The 07 I bought didn't have a toolkit, so I was glad I hung onto the toolkit out of my 04. That spark plug wrench really is the exact thing you need to reach the plugs on the 919-- no combination of spark plug socket + extension that I own seems to fit as happily.

I do have a silly bone to pick though. Has anyone else's pouch started completely falling apart? Mine barely holds everything anymore, the shitty thin vinyl got brittle and cracked and now has huge rips in it. I got nosy and demanded to see the OEM toolkit out of my friends' first gen SV650 and TL1000R recently, and they get almost the exact same tools (I suspect most Japanese bikes do), but the tool pouch from Suzuki is a nice soft double-layer vinyl material and much sturdier, and holding up much better 15+ years on.

Fine, I'm adding a signature, leave me alone!

The bag from Honda is just a couple dollars from the web site I used. But I would be happy with a little nice one.
