Ultimate toolbag

Postby joe » Thu Apr 30, 2009 11:19 am

OK, I admit, this was a thread from the orphan forum last year. I thought I would bring it up here as we have some newbs who might be interested in stocking up for long trips this year...

The following items should be considered for your tool bag or glove box when considering long rides:

cigarette lighter and small roll solder
electrical tape
wire connectors
woodruff key(s)
castle nut
cotter pin(s)
first aid kit
couple feet of electrical wire
Throttle and clutch cable
Sparkplug(s)
wrenches 5 mm through 13 mm
sockets same (1/4" drive seems to work pretty good) w/ 2" extension
screwdriver w/ multiple heads
4th hand tool
air presure gage
needle nose pliers
smaller channel locks
plug socket/wrench
1 larger standard screwdriver
wire strippers
small flashllight
spare CDI
spare voltage regulator
properly inflated spare tire
spare tube
small bottle of Bioshield (lube)
2 feet wire
shop rag
pair nitrile gloves

I also found about three foot of safety wire comes in real handy for numerous things on the side of the road. like when your pipe mount cracks going down the 101 at about 68 mph. a pair or two of nitrile gloves and a shop rag to keep tidy and that is a pretty good list.

the ultimate bag above is mostly vespa-centric. what tools can you think of would go into a Lambretta tool bad that would be different?

I agree. Anything vintage may have an issue that a tool bag can't fix. I don't have one yet but a cell phone is probally the best tool. A friend could talk you through repairs or you can contact someone for a ride.

Nice, everything covered here.

I have been wanting to assemble a thourough kit myself as Ive broken so many cables at the most inopertune time (in front of the Presididential motorcade being the last, with dozens of Secret Service staring me down hard). I will use this as a guide.


Thanks!
