Someone had some and it kept the ride going.
+1, use the carry kit to perform general maintence on the bike at home. Add and change tool type as needed always with an eye on less weight and more versital tools.
This is the carry tool kit for my Honda, but you'll get the idea:
96 XR650L, 96 Guzzi Sport, 07 BMW K1200GT,
86 Husky 400 XCE, 00 Husky Te 610 e, 1999 Husky TC610 SM, 2000 Cagiva GC; Google: TX7
