Angry Tool kit for 06 919?

Honda dealer in Maumee, OH told me that dealers simply arent giving out tool kits any more so I wont be getting one with my 0 mile 2006 Honda 919. Is this true or did they just steal a tool kit?

Honda has always supplied a tool kit with their new bikes. Insist on one then take the matter up with the Mgr. or owner.
Did you at least get a owners manual?

Yep I got a owner's manual and the tool kit bag only came with a small allen wrench/key for the side panels and some sort of helmet hanger wire. That's it! So what should be in this tool kit anyway? I was hoping to look at that spanner wrench and adjust the very soft rear spring a bit but ....

If you were to put a kit together for the bike what would you use? I have a C02 inflator and tire repair kit on the way. Center stand ordered ( not part of the kit but makes tire repairs a bit easier).

Speaking of tires my 919 came with Michelin Hi-Sports. I've tried looking on various websites to see what users think of these but can't seem to find much of anything. Pilot Powers are mentioned a lot and favorably too. But I'll be doing some coommuting too and want a decent mile muncher tire as well as something sporty - maybe that's what I have?

Mine came with wrenches for the front and rear axles, a spark plug wrench w/ an allen on the other side, the spanner for the rear shock, one 12 & 14mm combo wrench, one 8mm wrench, a pair of the crappiest pliers known to man, and the worst screwdriver ever made.

Do yourself a favor and replace all with quality tools. Use what came with the original tool kit as a template and replace, replace, replace.

I'm with ya on that, dadogs. I usually pack a Leatherman, a real screwdriver, a ratchet, and some vital sockets if I'm going on a serious ride. Lucky for me, my bro's ZX9R has tons of storage and he always carries tons of tools (since his mount frequently has need of tools).

I almost forgot to mention this: it turns out that the 8mm wrench is not in fact a wrench at all, but a clever tool used for rounding off 8mm bolt heads or 8mm nuts.

A few of the tools are atually useful. The spark plug socket, the spanner wrench for the rear shock, and the 27mm box wrench for the rear axle.

As far as those Hi-sports go, unless you are out there seriously burning up the twisties or being a track day junkie, ride them until they wear out.



Side note: Now you know why my wife bitches that I have too much time on my hands. Who else could get a picture of their tool kit posted this quick?

Yes, should have a tool kit and manual. If you don't I would call the 800 number for Honda and ask them. Ask them if it comes with tool kit and let them know what the dealer said and report them. Sounds like to me the dealer mis placed the tool kits for 919's or lost them but in most cases it's the sales person to lazy to find it.

This is the addition I made to my ZX10R. I suggest using only the 25gr CO2 cartriges as they have the oomph for big skins.
The little pouch holds the valve and reamer, separate from each other so they wont' chinger each other up. Replace the glue and plugs with fresh stuff each season. I keep spares in the freezer.
I have not yet jumped into a quality tool kit replacement, but I think it is an excellent idea. You might check out Cruz Tools.

Very cool! I notice you keep the preperation h on the right and the suppositories on the left. Good thinking!

Man are you going to be pissed if your cowl flies off and you get a flat! Okay, so you probably always remember to clamp it down fully, but not everyone does.

Only the fookin lame-o's!

Damn Bock. That's like saying "Your gonna be pissed if your space saver spare jumps up and spins off the hold down wingnut, raises the cover and sets it down behind the driver's seat, reaches forward with it's tiny but determined little valve stem and presses the trunk realease button, right before it jumps out and rolls off down into the steep ravine, totally out of sight and you run oover(YES...oover!) a 16p nail causing a flat and now you don't have a spare, and you are a pretty girl who gets raped by Bigfoot and have his love fur ball"

Ok forget about the 16p nail and replace it with an empty Jack Daniels bottle.

Uh, actually it's nothing like that. But that was damn funny.

I have a couple buddies who have experienced spontaneous cowl ejection. One of them probably doesn't know how to fasten it properly, so that's probably his own stupid fault.

Also, Murphy's law must always be applied.

Honda (1-866-784-1870) said they had done some survey that detailed how little motorcycle users use the tool kit that came with/on the bike so they decided to stop including them on some models. The tool kit is available though through your favorite Honda dealer. The spanner wrench ("pin wrench" part number is 89202-KY1-700) and when they send me the parts list for the rest of the kit I'll attach it in a reply.

So I guess it's off to Sears for everything else other than the spanner wrench.

What have you really ever used in that tool kit? Everything? Have you thought to yourselves if you had put together that tool kit you would have included something more? Better quality? ..... ?

I most definitely would have used better quality tools, but I have used every one of those tools at one time or another. Granted, I use them rarely, but the point is that the tools are there if I need them.

Damm, that's a cheap a$$ move on Honda's part. That plug socket works perfectly for getting at those hard to reach spark plugs. And the rear shock spanner works pretty well also. Try ServiceHonda.com. Good prices. Way cheaper than my local dealers.

It's a fool who looks for logic in the chambers of the human heart.

+1 on that Dave. There use to be a time when the Honda tool kit for the SOHC CB750 contained both intake and exhaust feeler gauges. I still have mine out in the tool box.

I would definately check out Cruz Tools. Honda Riders Club gave out a free Outbacker tool for my renewal last year. Now I keep that in the RR's wimpy trunk as there is no room for anything else.

I was disappointed that my '06 919 didn't come with a tool kit either.

I'm not sure everthing in this kit from sears is useful enough for 100 bucks.

Hell I used the tool kit that came with my '78 Hawk for all my standard mantaince stuff.. the pliers were kinda sucky.. but that screw driver was the most ill concived piece of donkey $%^ ^&*%^#%^[email protected]%^$%^#$%.

And I have used the wrenches out of the 919's kit for tire change and chain adjustment... though I ussaly get a socket and for the extra leverage to loosen and tighten the rear axle..

If I am on a serious trip I pack another tool kit.. but for the most part just haul the kit that came with the bike.. the quality sucks ...but flat out it's got the right bits in it for roadside emergencies...

ok I've rambled enough.. must be bed time..

Actually.. no, it does not have the the right bits. The stock 919 tool kit is missing a very important tool. 6mm Hex/Allen wrench to remove the rear grab bar in the case you have to get your tail section off for whatever reason.. say to by-pass a faulty PowerCommander if it fails while at a gas station. Ask me how I know? True story. Luckily, my VFR750 buddy had his 6mm with him. I promptly put one in the kit... oh wait.. then took the whole kit out and left it on my workbench for the last 6 months. Arrgh! Note to self: put 919 tool kit back under seat of 919.

ok.. do the same and enjoy,

I think the Honda spark plug socket is very important if you want to change your plugs.

Me and my dad were changing my plugs and had trouble getting to one of the plugs. My dad has a ton of different socket extensions/gizmos and a million other tools and we could still not get to it, so I decided to pull the tool kit out and sure enough using the plug socket was the only way to get at that spark plug

Yeah.. #3 is a bitch. But you can always remove more stuff first. Tank, PAIR valve and tubes.. etc.. gets a lot easier with stuff out of the way.

Cycho is right on this one. I actually pack a small set of allen wrenches under the seat, 2-12mm. Hey, ya never know.
