Default Tools??

Putting together a tool roll. What is recommended? FYI, ktm and aro.
What would be nice are useful “multi-tools” to reduce bulk and weight.

A 3/8" T-handle and sockets for pretty much everything on your bike and kit. Then look for the specific things that need an end wrench (track tension lock nuts) and add those too. If you can get away with a Swedish Nut Lathe (crescent wrench), then gamble with that route. Look for a T handle that has drivers on both the short and long ends. Then of course a Leatherman, tape, zip ties, and safety wire.

I carry probably too many tools but hey better safe than sorry. I have a full set of sockets from 6mm to 19mm a bunch of open end wrenches, full set of alan keys, screwdrivers, spare chains in two pieces so I can make a drive chain or a chaincase chain, tape, zip ties, 3/8 drive ratchet with a 1/4" adaptor and extension and probably some other stuff I'm forgetting. Sounds like a lot but its not too bad.

I refuse to try and fix something with some POS multitool out in a snow bank. Having the right tools makes a bad time go better. There's good weight and bad weight. Bad weight is around your waist, good weight is tools.

For multi tool check out the leatherman crunch. Makes itself into a decent pair of vice grips!

Dry sparkplug and a way to change it.

Little baby vice grips are great, and i carry those. Or at least one of them.


Most other stuff already covered.



Sat phone, Spot, or InReach.

I'm in the process of finally mounting a Pelican tool box to my Camso. Here's a few pics of where I'm mounting it and what's inside so far. Sockets (only 1/4" drive), hex keys, master link, spark plug, vise grip, spare fasteners, matches, lighter to start a fire (not for weed)....we're mounting the box with the lid to be accessible from the back in case the bike falls to one side or the other. A spare flash light along with a helmet light and the bike's head light in case we get caught out in the dark. Hard to see my tools well without a head light.
