Another WT member (Wallybanger) suggested this idea in another thread, and I thought I'd start it off. The idea is, what is THE
definitive tool kit for the 919...for every damn fastener on the bike.
This list would be handy for reference while doing regular maintenance in your garage or for selecting tools for a travel tool kit that has ONLY
those tools necessary to fix the 919 out in the boonies in BFE somewhere on the side of the road...on a dark, moonless night.
I don't believe that the OEM Honda tool kit is adequate, even though some folks will likely try to defend it. Cheap tools are specially designed to round off bolt heads or strip out screws, or otherwise mangle perfectly good parts, so keep in mind that quality tools are best!
While we're at it, lets list some essential spares for critical failures that could occur far from anywhere...as has happened to a few of us!
If you add something to the list, be prepared to defend it by providing a story for when it came in handy and got you home when you would have been stranded otherwise...Let's please keep this on topic and relevant, If this comes together well it could be added to the 919 helpful topics...
