Tools and spares (KTM690E but mostly general)

Post by Pingvin » Fri Jan 12, 2018 10:02 pm

So...my tools have been a mess as have 3 KTMs and had 8 previously so bit by chance what happen to bring with me. Decided to make 3 separte sets, already done for my 450EXCF and 990SMR but no way to get a decent set from what had left for my 690 so started from scratch (well, had some).

Goal was to have the tools I need but minimzie bulk/weight. And won't do an engine rebuild in the woods, don't have the skills anyway. This is what I endend up with, happy for any comment what's missing and what I don't really need.

First basic tool will that will stay on bike evn on day trips:

Image
Axel wrench alu 27mm/32mm
Leatherman Crunch (with integrated wise grip)
1/4" spinner
1/4" sliding T-bar
1/4" extension bar 150 mm
1/4" bit adapter
1/4" universal joint
L-keys hex 1.5, 2, 2.5 mm
1/4" bits Hex 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10 mm
1/4" bits TORX T 8, 10, 15, 20, 25, 27, 30, 40, 45
1/4" bits Phillips: PH 0, 1, 2, 3, 4
1/4" bits slotted: 4, 5.5, 7 mm
31/4" bits Pozidriv: PZ 1, 2, 3
Hex sockets 6, 8, 10, 13 mm
Spoke wrench
MOTION PRO TiProlight Titanium 4 Pc Wrench Set / 8,10,12 & 13mm (Not shown...stupid expensive but ordered)
Cam buckle strap
Gorilla tape
Cable ties
Paracord barcelet
Misc. bolts etc
Spark plug
Spark plug connector (been there...)
Tow strap

And in addition for multiday trips (possibly deep into woods far from civilization and all that):

Image

1 litre engine oil
Collapsible Funnel for oil (1 euro on ebay...including shipping)
Spare tubes front and rear
Tyre lever with 32mm end for rear axel (so can leave the other wrench at home). Not light but very good as primary lever.
27mm insert for above lever for front axel
Motion Pro tyre levers/bead breaker (so 3 levers in total)
Tube repair kit
Mini pump with infaltor for cartridge
3 off air cartridges
Valve stem puller
Chain lube (concentrated)
Electrical tape
Mini WD-40
Silicon gasket
Radiator leake stopper
Chemical metal
Super glue
Wire saw
Axel nuts front/rear (not sure why but had laying around...maybe loose)
Foot peg pin and spring (not sure why but had laying around...maybe loose)
Kick stand engine killer eliminator (had from my 690SMC racing days...but good idea bringing)
Brake pads (front shown, will buy rear)
Oil filters (in case drown bike, have done...twice)'

This is excluding all camping gear, clothing, electronic stuff, toiletries and first aid stuff. And spare fuel, not decided how to solve this yet.

Seems well prepared. A lot of stuff to carry alone. me and my two riding buddies have also 690s so we can split up all the tools and spares. Pretty convenient. I like that 27/32mm spanner, where can i get one of these? Where u from?

Thanks for the info. Right now it's down, but maybe they will be back online soon. I already bent the spanner from the ktm toolkit, it's crap :(

Looks like nice kit dude! :handgestures-thumbup:
Just two remarks that might help you slim down some more.

Seems like a lot of bits to me, I'm pretty sure you could do with less than 1/4th of that, especially on day trips.

Cam buckle strap
Gorilla tape
Cable ties
Paracord barcelet
Tow strap
Duct tape and cable ties are no-brainers but apart from those I think one strap/cord/rope would suffice.

Yes, agree, will remove some of the bits

OK, as a compromise, I will loose the paracord :greetings-waveyellow:

Haha, by all means, if you feel good carrying the bits and paracord you should absolutely do so!
Probably not even 200gr in weight savings...

Since you are a 690 rider why not look at the Rolling Hobo toolkit?

I ride a Husky 701 which is a blue & white KTM 690 in disguise. Independently from Rolling Hobo I put together my own tool roll and it is almost identical to his to the point of being scary :-)

I learned by working on the bike at home with only the tools in the tool roll :-)

Good tip, seen it before but forgot all about it! Thanks :handgestures-thumbup:

One thing...maybe just me but I don't like tool rolls as they add lots of bulk. With that few tools (minimalistic right) it's not very hard finding the tool you need from a piuch anyway. Have a nice Moose racing tool roll but never used it. Guess could claim that convenient not having to put any tools on the ground, but not that hard finding something to put the tools on. Well, free world so each to their own :-)

Yes, the big tyre lever is my preferred lever, not the lightest as steel but I'll live with that to get an easier field job.
