Then if you are in some god forsaken place and it snaps on you all you have to do is hook up the spare and you are rolling again.
Check, have one of each in stock (even though the clutch is new within the last six months). Started with a base set of tools, not every time I work on the moto and necessarily need a tool I add it to the kit.
