What was / is the original tool kit on an LT?

A tool roll type ?..or a pouch type ? where was it carried/stowed ?

I know I can make up my own, or go with Cruz-Tools, but any OEM's known for sale?

I didn't like the roll kit for tools, etc. The attaching strap and 'holster' wouldn't stay put on ole Toad. So, here is what I did. Eliminated my aggravation with the OEM roll. HTH.

I remember seeing that thread, Dick. Only shelf liner I found was quite thin. How thick is the liner that you are using? Rubber, foam, or foam rubber?

Both. The cutouts were made in a high density foam layer, and the solid pieces are thin rubber. The kit I found at Sears contained everything, including a decently sharp knife. I found it in the tool section - near the tool chest line.

Cheers, Dick. I will go back to S&R and see if I can find a bit of that.

Hello Ron,

About the only actual tool in mine was a reversible screwdriver plus some fuses. I guess they thought that the first buyers would not be working on their own bikes. That having been said, find a junk yard and go into the trunks of old BMW cars. the tool kits are located on the inside of the trunk lids. If you can find an old E23 or E32 7 series, you will find a gold mine of tools by the same manufacturer who made the motorcycle tools.

Regards,

Will

The first years of the LT had a pouch with a reasonable tool kit in them, the later years much less so as far as I can remember from posts here. I don't know what year it changed.

with mine the tools kept working there way out of the roll kit, so I bought a small leather zippered bag and filled it with some real tools.
