Toolkit for 2011 Crossrunner
on: December 28, 2016, 02:54:10 PM
As a new owner of used Crossrunner thinking about tools I need to have with me, what sizes and what tools might be useful in long trips? Of course I will take duct tape and leatherman multitool + standard set, anything else to recommend?

I have a puncture kit, inflation cylinders and some mechanics gloves as well as the tool kit, some chargers (phone and heated gloves) from the battery and a Scottoiler.  Not much room for much else.  :003:
I could get all sorts of things under the seat of my old VFR800 FiX.

Long trips?...I have a tyre repair kit, one that you push through a bung to seal the hole, and a small compressor powered from the bike to re-inflate the tyre.

Zip ties have their uses too. And a small torch.

I also bought a small toolkit from Aldi for less than £20. It's small enough to not take much space in the top box and has loads of useful extras in it. It's my go-to toolkit in the garage as well.

Thank you for suggestions, I meant more tools like wrenches, sockets, torx etc, I have a big toolkit at home, I just thinking of getting the most useful tools from it only.

In that case, you'd need to identify the most likely nuts/bolts etc that you are likely to need in case of the most common issues.

You have the pre-15 model so I don't know if it's the same as mine, but I noticed yesterday that in order to take out the rear wheel, the end can needs moving to the side which requires a Torx head driver.

Why can't they keep it simple?
