1. Metric socket and wrench kit. Have 27mm and 32mm 1/2" sockets. Anybody have an oddball axle size. Have 3/4" up to I think 52mm.
2. ft/lb and in/lb torque wrenches (being in my line of work I am unfortunately anal about torque specs.
3. Tire changing stand.
4. Basic hand tools (Hammer, brass, punches, etc)
5. Have a couple spare 21" fronts and one 18" rear in case someone tears a tire.

Anybody who is riding or traveling lighter have any needs that I can toss in the truck and trailer?
Cheers Ken
I'll throw my 18" D606 rear in there too. It's in good shape but I was talked into MX51 by a wiser inmate
For the 1200GS i'll bring a small supply of 800mg Ibuprofen for the sore muscles caused by lifting it up if it falls!

There will be no blaming crashes on tire choice, or me....

I know my BMW uses Torx bits for almost everything. Not sure about anyone else's GS.

I'll bring my dremel set and some JB Weld in case anyone needs to do some minor fabrication/grinding. Matt had to patch a hole in his clutch case with a soda can and some JB Weld last year. It took him a bit to sand it down by hand.

I've replaced a bad starter with a brand new bad starter before.

Then I paid a mechanic to tell me my starter was bad.

Multimeters are your friends........

All electrical problems are a ground until proven otherwise.

Have installed a new battery and immediately cooked it because the cause of the first bad battery was an R/R. That will make the F-Bombs cometh.

The Boss knows when she hears "Fuckity-Fuck-FUCK" coming from the garage, it is going to cost us money.
