Suggested tool kit for '10 F650GS

I'm looking for suggestions on assembling a tool kit for my wife's '10 F650GS.
The standard kit supplied with the bike 'isn't much'. Thanks for any suggestions/help.

Someone's going to come out of the woodwork and tell you that the standard BMW toolkit these days is a cell phone and Visa card.

Seriously, if no one else responds I'll inventory my R1100GS tools and make suggestions. On the older bikes a 10mm will remove 90% of the bolts. For the newer bikes they use Torx fasteners to hold the plastic on and if that's what you have then you definitely want to carry the appropriate Torx wrench.

Good luck!

The adventure designs under the seat toolkit:

Every tool you need for all fasteners on the bike...and it fits under the seat. In another thread on the forums here someone had done the math for it and you only save about 20$ assembling it yourself and that is without the compact tools or the roll.

Ordered mine on Tuesday and just waiting for it in the mail...

I like the Cruz tools kit for BMWs. It has a nice tool roll and the torx tools to fit most stuff on the bike.

F800 twins thread at the top of Parallel universe page. In the twins thread go to the bottom of the page and there is plenty of tool kit info there. I have shit loads of tools, I took the info from the site and then went into the garage with beer and began to place tools to bike, and went from front to back. I thought of how to take off the front tire, matched up all the tools needed, sid panels, head, handle bar bolts, covers, and made my way to the back. Two beers later I have my kit, and a case later have the tools in a set of "Starfrit" plastic cases from the kitchen. (Wife didn't catch me) I can place all my tools, tire repair kit and spoons in the bottom of both my side panniers.

If you take a few of the comments in the tools section of 650-800 twins in Parallel universe, print them out and hit Sears, Canadian Tire, and Princess Auto and all your tools can be found individually. A 3/8 to 1/2 inch ratchet adapter is a must as some of the sockets are 1/2 and others are 3/8 ratchet

This is for the 800, but sure the needs are virtually identical. Lots of good info in this post, i assembled mine for under $40, bought a pencil case at walmart and managed to fit it all under the seat....really no need to spend that kind of money on pre-assembled kits....

Thanks for the Adv Designs suggestion. Been looking for a kit (not too actively, though) and this is perfect. Ordered!
