Travel Tool Kit

Be prepared to make minor roadside motorcycle repairs.

When venturing far from home on your motorcycle, it’s a good idea to carry an emergency tool kit to help with basic repairs that might otherwise leave you stranded on the side of the road.  Let’s take a look at the most useful tools to pack a portable motorcycle repair kit.  Carrying an entire toolbox is not practical, and space on your motorcycle is at a premium, but you still want to be able to make basic repairs.  Carrying a small set of basic hand tools specific to your motorcycle is essential.    

A basic travel tool kit might include:

  • Wrenches (box/open-face)
  • Crescent wrench
  • Sockets/small ratchet
  • Hex/torx keys
