Is this thread still the last word on toolkits. I am thinking of pulling out the credit card and getting the kit from advdesigns. Dave

I have the compact underseat version and it is good. It fits under the seat with room for my manual in which I have my reg/insurance.

Pretty complete kit. I have added a few things mostly because of aftermarket stuff with different size fasteners.

Oh, and here's a working link:

So I gotta ask. Looks like you will need an extra 13 in that kit. Chain Tensioners are both 13 size right?

13 is included. You only need one.

Umm... so how do you adjust the chain tensioner with only one wrench?

One at a time??

I will have to go look as it's been a while since I looked at it but as I remember you just loosen the outer nut then the inner one adjusts the tension.

Right but when you go to tighten the locknut you have to hold the adjuster screw so it doesn't turn. I need two 13s.

I've never had to hold it. It shouldn't turn. it's designed to be done with one wrench, but you can carry an extra if you want.

Interesting. I hold it when I tighten the locknut. Hmmm....

BTW be careful people when ajusting your chain. The left side (disc brake side) doesn't like to stay snugged up. I often find that when tightening the axel bolt the adjuster bolt often is a small space from the adjuster block.

The trick I use is that once I get the chain tension correct and the adjusters tightened up I grab a screw driver and roll it back in between the chain and sprocket. The extra tension on the chain holds the disc side snugged up.

The bolt may turn a bit when tightening the lock nut but not enough to worry about. Adjusting the chain isn't like adjusting valve lash where a couple thousandths makes a difference.

Good thread. I thought about putting one together myself... but it was so easy to just click and order the adv-design kit. I'm lazy I guess. And it comes with pouches and all fits under the seat. How awesome is that. Nice product, and the tools are decent, too. Not cheap crap.

Highly reccomended.

Also, you can fit motion pro t6 levers between the frame and gas tank under the seat. they slide in there and stay put. now all my tools except stuff like spare tube, etc, are under the seat. Even put CO2 and other stuff in the compartment underneath my sargent seat.

tools under seat

I can't remember who suggested/did this, but props to that guy, cuz this is the shit..

Just cut the damn tabs off of the "first aid kit" spot, thread in some velcro cable ties, & blamo.. under seat storage for your tools. I also stuffed another little bag at the back of the seat cavity with some glow sticks, duct tape, zip ties etc.. it takes just a little shimmy-ing to get the seat back on, but it works just fine and all that shit is stowed away!
