F800GS Toolkit needs
 
The 800 fasteners are just about all Torx vs hex or Allenhead.

So to work on the bike you need the following:

Torx T10 left control housing
T20 throttle assembly
T25 fairings, control, body work
T30 muffler mount, signals, motor chassis, rotor
T40 triple clamp, brake pivot, rear rotor, brake line
T45 body, exhaust mount, fork axle pinch bolts, controls
T55 Bar Ends

Torx socket
E10 handlebar clamps
E12 Front Caliper brakes

Wrench
13mm Chain tension sprocket
17 mm Front Axle
24mm Rear axle
24mm Drain plug.

Nice
 
Great post, really helpful.

Thanks,

You'd think Bmw would include a driver, all the torx bits, and a few sockets.
It could all fit in that little first-aid kit area under the seat.

Add to this...
E8 for the external torx on the gear shifter lever.
19mm hex bit for the front axle.
22mm hex bit for the rear axle.

How many?!
 
So what do you get in the standard tool kit?!

At that rate, it would be cheaper to buy a load of Allen-head bolts and replace them all surely?!

one is the external nut (wrench), the other is the internal, like a giant allen.

how exactly are we supposed to get the wheels off?
Where do you get the tools?
Sears didnt have a jumbo-ass hex even close to that size

I have changed my tires to TKCs and I did not need a bigass hex. Just losen the 17mm and the small torxes at the bottom of the fork, then take the bolt out. No probs at all.

This it what I use on most of the sportbikes out there.
They have been that way for about 10 years or so.
There are cheaper ones out there for sure, some made
of steel, but this one has all the sizes I need to do tire
changes in my garage with my tire machine.
Hope this helps.

guess i could have looked at the manual first.
the smaller torx bolts hold the axels tight to loosen the axel bolt,
so you really don't even need the tool.

Gary, How about you skip worry about tools and we can just do an even trade for my '07 DR. Only got 10k miles on it! You never liked Beemers anyways!

I'm seriously contemplating that. Only a matter of time until someone comes out with a nice stainless fastener kit...

I started with a foldup torx set that covers T10 to T40 along with a T25 T handle since there are so many on my GT as well. I have always used thumbwheel ratchets and started carrying one of those with a 3" extention and the Torx sockets - compact, gets into tight places and won't let you overtighten or strip screws or screw up well nuts. Along with it I have a very small folding handle ratchet drive that has also found it's way into my tool bag.

Don't forget one of these!

Ya I know, the problem has supposedly been solved........
But even the best parts can fail. Being that BMW won't give us a work around in that event, a simple component failure that isn't even neccesary can stop you stranded with no hope of restarting.

This will stay with my tools on the bike (when the bike gets here).
