Complete 950 Tool & Parts List-TOURING

I'm looking for complete tool and parts list for touring. (bike related-not camping) Anybody have a well documented list of necessities/niceties for touring and extended touring both on-road and off?

If you look on the KTM site under Journey / Technic there is an interesting list. I am using this as my starting point.

Thanks for the start. I'm suprised there isn't any other input to this question. I would think that there would be more help for preparedness since everyone here is supposed to be experienced offroaders and tourers. Maybe they all have sagwagons for their equipment.

I'm really looking for specific 950 tools and parts list. Everything else I'm good to go.

Not to rag on you too much, but it might have helped if you had mentioned that in your initial post, since neither your profile nor your signature indicate that you ride a 950.

For each new bike purchase I go to the local Lowes or Home Depot and buy the basics.


(I am sure I will forget something here)


Multi purpose 4 in one screw driver.
Plier set: needle nose, small pliers and small wire cutters.
Zip ties.
Metric or SAE wrenches, low or medium grade. (this is a road side repair kit, why drop the big bucks when you got those at home, I only need in once)
Torx drivers as needed
Allen wrenches.
Can of spray paint that closely matches your bike. Close is good enough.



I start on the front of the bike and tighten EVERY nut, bolt, screw and fastener. This builds confidence and lets you learn the bike. As I use a tool I set it aside. Tools I do not use I add to my junk drawer. After I am through I add some paint to the tools that are going to stay with the bike and be bike specific. WHY carry shit you do not need and does not fit your bike?

I also keep a note pad close by for notes of specific tools I did not get on my first run, ie: nut drivers, maybe a few sockets and cheapo ratchet.

I add tire tools, patch or plug kit, a few wire connectors. I also wrap a few tools in electrical tape and duct tape (way carry the whole roll??)

A few years ago I started adding an LED headlamp and some extra AA batteries (midnight repairs suck)

Yea, might have been a good idea to mention that from the start. Otherwise, this wouldn't have been moved out of Orange Crush to begin with. I'll move it back and tweak the title.

The stock tool kit actually is very good. The only thing I could not do with the stock tool kit was pull the case oil plug. I have fixed the fuel pump, checked the sparkplugs, disasembled the stator, and fixed front and rear flats. Every thing is there except the tire Irons. Practice fixing a rear flat, it takes some know how.

The tool kit lacks a 19mm main drain plug wrench (the right side screen works), 11mm brake bleed nipple wrench and 3mm windscreen wrench.

I carry 4" and 8" zip ties, 4mm tubes / tire repair kit and clip-on headlamp.

The Best Tools to Carry

I just want to ID what I think are a few of the best tools to add on any toolbox.

#1 the small 4" needle nose vise grips. These are the ultimate clamp, wire cutter, cable repair, universal open end tool. You can 'get by' using this over ten other tools. I've fixed a broken clutch cable and rode normally using these. I've fixed a broken shift lever by clamping this on to the remainder. You can clamp this on screwdrivers for more leverage. You can clamp broken parts back togather. Don't bother with other brands. Usually $9

#2 Malcom Smith (MS) brand 6-in-1 screwdriver. This looks like all the others, but Malcom had it made special. The sockets for the tips are 8 mm and 10 mm. Just right for most of the bolts. All other screw drivers have a 1/4" socket, not useful. It's only $10.
