Holy frijole, Dave!!! You pull into a dealer's parking lot and the mechanics take the rest of the day off!!! I'm beginning to follow El Jeffe's lead, and carry a cell phone, credit card, and maybe a first aid kit!!! Minimalist makes it easier on ole Toad's back, too!!!saddleman said:
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!CraigCraig said: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,
Nickp said: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......
Is that ($50) for just ONE unit......HOLY MOLY! I'll just wait til Walmart gets them for a 10th of the price. :rotf:rosenhauer said:
