Great clip. Wish I was as good on computers to do stuff with my GoPro like that

2010 XT660Z Tenere tool kit

I picked up my Tenere today, lovely piece of kit. Only rode it 50 miles from the garage to home before I started to farkle it though. Wheels are off ready for me to fit a set of MITAS E09's on, put a touratech rear rack on and started to put my GPS mount in etc.

Really looking forward to getting some miles under my belt on it.

One thing I have found out, that I know I should of checked for at the garage was the toolkit. Alas, removed the seat today to find the toolkit has gone walkabout.

Does anyone have a list of whats in the tenere tool kit as standard? Also, what would you add to it? I have a kriega tool roll that I can stock up and use with the bike. Any info, and experience gratefully received.

Don't worry, the standard toolkit is useless anyway.

You need...

- 14mm hex key for the front spindle
- 6mm hex key for the pinch bolts on the forks
- 22mm socket/spanner for the rear spindle
- 10mm and 12mm open ended spanners to adjust the chain.
- 4mm hex key to get most of the bodywork off.
- 13mm and 17mm sockets and 5mm hex key to change the oil.

You can pretty much take the whole bike apart with those tools - at least anything you're likely to do away from home. Plus tyre changing kit.

Yes the oem toolkit is lacking a few key items. The only things you may miss from the kit are the special tool to adjust the rear suspension and the spark plug socket. Get a hex wrench for the front fork preload adjustment too. Allthough lugging it around is probably unnecessary.

Thank you guys, these suggestions are very useful.

However, if somebody can tell us what's in the original toolkit, it would also be helpful. I have the feeling my toolkit misses some bits

Cheers

Does anyone know what tank bag this is? It looks like a tool belt perhaps used as tank bag?

I heartily agree. I would buy one in a heartbeat or less. If anyone knows how I would like to know if a mere human can import one or would it be so costly in emissions that it is not feasible?

I don't reckon that emissions would be a problem, it's the most fuel efficient bike I ridden, although noise might be an issue with the superb Akros fitted I'm thinking the demand might be just too high in the States for this bike
