Tool Kit

Looking to put together a tool kit for my 16. Sadly, unlike my previous bikes which came with all of the basic tools needed for roadside repairs, the FJR "Tool Kit" is a joke. Want to know what tools and sizes are needed. Not looking for a link to a generic tool kit that includes tools in sizes not needed for the FJR. Looking for socket sizes, hex sizes, wrench sizes and other hand tools needed for roadside fixes including removing wheels. Thanks for any help you can provide.

For wheels you'll need a 22 and 27mm socket and one of those extendable 1/2" drive ratchets that can be used as a breaker bar. You'll need 8,10,12mm socket and wrench, 4,5,6mm hex, #1&2 Phillips+flat, spark plug wrench... depends what you want to do. There was a thread about emergency tool kits........

Add 14 and 17 mm sockets and wrenches.

What few cross-tip screws there are are not Phillips. They are JIS (Japanese Industrial Standard). JIS is just different enough that using a regular Phillips tip on them will eventually hog out the screw. The little Phillips-looking screwdriver that comes with the FJR toolkit is actually JIS.

Comparison:

I always replace what few cross-tip screws I find with Allen screws. The screws securing the headlight adjusters are M3-.5X10 mm requiring a 2.5 mm Allen wrench. The two screws securing the sidestand switch - I don't remember. Those can all be found in the hardware bins at Lowe's or Home Depot.

To remove the wheels, you will also need 13 and 17 mm Allen wrenches, or one of these:

A list of a few good curse words that you don't normally use for those special situations would be good as well. Especially for when you get the front wheel on and realize you forgot the washer, or the front wheel is on and you realize you didn't get the ABS ring in the slot on the fork tube, or you forget yourself while the front wheel is off and pull on the brake lever and one of your brake pistons falls out and you get brake fluid on all your paint and you have no brake fluid to bleed the system with. DAMHIKT.

I won't ask you how you know that, but you saw someone else make those mistakes, right?

Thanks guys, that's the info I was looking for. I ordered that tool for wheel removal - thanks for the link. That other thread didn't specify wrench sizes. A trip to Harbor Freight and for $60 I have the exact tools needed to do anything one would attempt on the side of the road. Got all that plus a compressor and plug kit under the seat with room to spare. Just need to pick up one of those lithium jump start batteries and I should be good to go.

A TPMS system and good tire repair kit (I find sticky strings better than 'special' kits)... should keep you from taking wheels off and you can monitor tire pressures.
Phil I don't know what was going on there, but as long as the brake pads are in the calipers, pulling the lever won't spit out a piston, not enough travel.
You can make an axle holding tool by making up a short bolt with the appropriate size head and running a couple of nuts on it up tight. On the road emergency, I'd use the pinch bolts on that side until snug, loosen pinch bolts, torque it up, carry on with the rest....
