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.

PackMule screwed with this post 10-16-2008 at 12:22 PM Reason: Corrected rear axle size (24mm)

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.

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?!

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.

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.

Leave the hex side pinch bolt snug until you have loosened the other side, once they are other side is finger loose, loosen the hex side pinch bolts and push the axle out. I have taken my wheels off of my 8GS numerous times this way and have never needed the large hex. Good luck, it seems to work for me!

food for thought?

I'm liking all the kits that i see coming up in this thread.

My question is, would you be able to break the bike down with anyone of these kits, or are you relying on roadside assistance to get you the rest of the way?

Reason I ask is that I am going RTW in a few years and I need a complete kit. I am going to console with my mechanic on this to ensure that there are no odd ball tools that I need.

I have a better chance of an antenna ring failure than a mechanical failure, but I will want to be prepared to run in to Murphy in the worst possible location.
