Tool Kit for K1200LT

Could someone please recommend a tool kit for a 2008 K1200LT? I bought the bike last year; it had only 5K miles, but did not include any tools.

Thanks very much,

Craig (Michigan)

Re: Tool Kit for K1200LT

I've noticed tool kit requests in the past. Do they no longer come with tool kits? I bought my '02 used in '08 and got a very decent BMW branded tool roll in it's spot in the left side case. I say decent because it compared to the ones I've gotten with Japanese bikes they seem like Craftsmen or Snap-On.

Re: Tool Kit for K1200LT

The first time I took the tupperware off, I wrote down the different sizes of Torx and Hex that I needed. I then went to Sears and bought a nifty little kit of bits, a scredriver and a small 3 or 4 inch ratchet type deal and put them in a bag along with fuses, electrical tape, some pliers etc. I dont carry much more than that as I really dont plan on tearing into the bike beyond that. Oh, a cell phone and spot locator also.

Re: Tool Kit for K1200LT

I bought a Cruz kit from the dealer that I bought the bike from as well as a tire repair kit.
The Cruz kit looks much better made than the BMW kit and was 1/2 the cost.

I kept a list of tools I used when I put my CB on my LT ( required removing most tupperware, seats, etc.) and also when I changed front and rear tires. I then used that as a guide and bought what I needed at Sears. I haven't changed a final drive so I am sure I am lacking something for that (large hex wrench and cut-out socket, for example), but I think I have enough for most road-side repairs. I do need to add some electrical tape yet and other such sundries. I followed the lead of someone else on the forum and placed the tools in the bottom of my side bags and spent 4 hours with an Exacto knife making the cut-outs!

I will try to attach the list of tools (Excel) and a couple of pictures of the way I carry the tools.

Pull tupperware.. do your "maintenance".. then you will know what to carry....because it does no good to have it if you don't know how to use it.

Re: Tool Kit for K1200LT

Thanks to everyone for all of the good suggestions. The LT is definitely a very smooth machine. It's my first K-bike after years of riding airheads. I've kept my R100RT.

Thanks again, Craig.

Re: Tool Kit for K1200LT

I just purchased a new 09 LT last week. The only tools which were supplied were in the left bag, in a small pouch, consisting of a flimsy screwdriver, a fuse puller and a bunch of fuses. Nothing else.

Looking in the manual it suggested there should be more tools along with a helmet cable. Just looking for input before I go back to the dealer. Is this really all BMW supplies for the 09 model year? Seems odd......

Thanks

Best Regards,

NP

Re: Tool Kit for K1200LT

The Kreiga tool bag/roll in the Aerostich catalog worked for me. It fits in the left trunk (not to long) and I was able to get everything in it I needed. Per some of the other advice CFell and others, I can do all of the maintenance I'm currently capable of with the tools in the kit. Have had off tupperware, spark plugs, all fluids etc. Not sure if I have what I would need for FD or bigger stuff, but don't know how to do these jobs anyway. That said, I am learning that this is a bike you need to learn to work on or have very deep pockets. The knowledge here has been great. Not looking forward to it, but I know when it happens there isn't anything that has not been dealt with by folks around here. Ride safe!

Re: Tool Kit for K1200LT

LMAO!! yup you get a Philips screw driver good luck finding the singe screw that it turns and a fuse puller. See BMW figures the bike is so bloody awesome that absolutely nothing could possibly go wrong with it so you have no need for tool's either that or they fear the flimsy shock springs can't handle the extra weight take your pick.

Re: Tool Kit for K1200LT

Now now let's not unduly insult the toolkit from recent years. In addition to the flimsy screwdriver, fuse puller and fuses you ALSO get a special plastic wrench with which to remove the radio antenna

Is that ($50) for just ONE unit......HOLY MOLY! I'll just wait til Walmart gets them for a 10th of the price.


Great thread, my '05 didn't come with a tool kit either so I'm looking for something useful and compact as well!

Looking into the Cruz and Kreiga right now!

I just purchased a new 09 LT and ask the dealer about the thin toolkit and was told that is all they come with. I did not get a plastic antenae wrench, just the flimsy screwdriver, fuse puller and some fuses!

Lets hope we do not need anything else. I am used to carrying tools on my Harley!

Yea, tell me about it. I can't believe they would waste their time on a tool roll and a tether system for a couple of items. They could have just put them in the storage compartment loose!

I think you'll be waiting a while. Maybe Wal-Mart will have a cheap knockoff but these things are solid. They can be seen for a long way off and if someone runs one over it's no big deal. And if you're lucky you'll never need to use them

Re: Tool Kit for K1200LT

A while back, when I had my K1200LT, Dave was coming south for a ride to eat and agreed to teach me how to swap the fluids in the brake and clutch. I asked what tools I should bring and he said that he normally carried everything needed to do the job.

He wasn't kidding.

Re: Tool Kit for K1200LT

OK I see no one mentioned the paper funnels.
Seriously though how much tools should one take on a trip. Garage/workshop is one thing but actually in the bags when on the road.I
I see Saddleman is prepared for anything and that's great. Others have mentioned knowing how to use and ones limitations. I also like Voyager's setup and how he built his tool inventory. 4 hours work to last as long as you have the bike is well worth it. Hopefully we don't have to use them.
Is there such a thing as a bare minimum (must have). Highly recommended or just whatever one thinks.
ride safe

2004 was the last model year for BMW to include "full" took kits on most models.

After that year they went to minimal offerings, often just a multi tipped screw driver, a torx bit or two, etc. Some models had a few more things....but never the kits like the earlier years. It was done, as I understand as one way to adjust for dollar-Euro changes back then other than just changing the price, which they still did over time.

Re: Tool Kit for K1200LT

I carry a few extra tools but the most important tool is duct tape. It came in very handy last year when one of the ladies rain suit pants split in the crotch. I pulled out the duct tape and fixed her right up. The only issue is now she is called Old Silver Crotch by all the other women in the group.

You have to grow up to have a mid-life crisis!!!!!

I could play with women or with cars, I find cars are cheaper and you can write a book about cars a guy would understand.
