Tool space

I use, and have used for years, a Sears black (heavy plastic) box, part #9 65293. It is 8.5 long, 4.5 front to back, and 2 inches deep. I carry a socket set, short ratchet, short extension, a set of hex drives, a wire stripping tool, and two pair of small pliers in mine. Stick it in a freezer bag and it will ride on top of your battery quite nicely. There is also room at the back of this box for a sandwich size container (walmart, 50 cents) for a limited first aid kit. The part number may have changed as I have had this thing for 20 years.

Re: Tool space

That part number gets you this:

Oneida Azalea 20pc Flatware Set
Sears item# 02465293000 Mfr. model# 65293

I think the knives may be useful for screwdrivers, but the spoons don't work well as sockets.

Sounds like it would also fit behind the pillion seat with the top box shifted back. That's where my tools are.

I bought a Helen2Wheel tool pouch and store it flat in the left saddle bag (picture attached). My saddle bag liner sits on top of the closed tool pouch without a problem. I store the OEM BMW tool pouch on top of my battery with powerlet and charging cords. The BMW tool pouch originally only contained a screwdriver, a few fuses and a fuse puller when I got my bike - but that's a different story.
