Extra Parts for the LT

At the Finger Lakes Rally, some poor fellow's valve stem broke at the base. A minor repair but it took some time for him to find a replacement. A bigger bonus, someone had a bead breaker in their trailer as well!!!

That got me thinking, this trip could have been ruined had someone not have a $.75 valve stem in his tank bag. Maybe I should carry one as will just in case.

What parts do you carry with you?

I'll start the list, simply cut and paste before adding to the list.

Valve Stem
Shift Linkage
Nolan N-102 helmet parts

Re: Extra Parts for the LT

Just an FYI

Every motorcycle comes equiped with a bead breaker,
it is commonly refered to as a side stand,
I've used it and it works.

Very true, actually the Harley sidestand makes the best beadbreaker (because of it's shape) but any bike will "break the bead" with a pull on the handlebars when the sidestand is positioned on the tire.

Now I wouldn't want to try this alone,
and "I'm just thinking out loud here",
but I wonder if you couldn't do the same thing with the power centerstand.

Cool Re: Extra Parts for the LT

Rob -

If you're a member of MOA carry the Anonymous book. It has lots of contacts that can help you get off the road if you need to as well as parts you may need.

Re: Extra Parts for the LT

Thanks Hans,

That's the first I've ever heard of that and it makes perfect sense. I hope that I never have to try it but with a little help I bet I could pull it off.

I love this site.

Post Re: Extra Parts for the LT

ARGGG ... what the heck goes wrong with the shift linkages ???

now I'm going to have to start carrying one with me



I carry a roll up tool set that's been weeded through so just tools that are useful on the LT are left in it ... a nice set of jumper cables, 2 flashlights, a spare oil plug bolt and spare oil filter, assorted fuses, headlight bulb, GMRS/FRS 2-way radio and a solar battery charger that I made (it will fully charge a dead battery in less than 2 hours on a good sunny day)

to date I've never had to repair anything on this LT - as well as learning from previous on-road problems that I've had myself, I've seen and heard of other people's problems and I try to learn from their mistakes instead of repeating them - thus the oil filter and drain plug

I haven't transferred my main emergency kit from my Harley to the BMW yet, but it will be more extensive once it's all put together and customized for the LT

I'm big on being prepared, and I can't wait to see some of the spare parts that people suggest and bring themselves - GREAT THREAD!
