What is in your tool kit - dirt bikes

I always like to be ready in case of some minor mechanical problem with my dirt bike.
I have Honda CRFx 250 and riding mostly in Colorado Rockies and Utah areas.
From couple hours ride to multiple days rides.

I know there are some specific tools for different bikes, but i like to know what is in your tool kit.

Every time I ride with different riders and I am always amaze what people carry. It is nice to see all the different little tools, and be able to use it.

All kinds of clamps, extra tire valve, duck tape.......

Thanks for sharing with me.

Too much stuff. Need to lighten my pack up considerably.

Once I get the fasteners on my bike sorted what I would like is:

8,10,12mm sockets and mini ratchet.

2,5,6mm allen drivers

one medium adjustable wrench.

tire plugs (yeaaaaah tubliss)

small bottle of stan's sealant

3 big shot CO2's and nozzle.

15 minute JB weld

some zip ties.

Right now my pack weighs probably 20-30lbs which is way too much, I'd like it to be sub 20 not counting 3L of water.

I keep all of my support gear in a set of Wolfman Day Tripper Enduro Saddle Bags. They don't get in the way, store quite a bit and keep my backpack as light as possible.

I have my extended tool kit down to 6 pounds not including tubes. My plan is to get that down to maybe 3 pounds. Of course there is all that Ti bling tools by Motion Pro and others.

The tool kit thread is exhausting.

GS toolkit

Great information at that toolkit thread.

I know the GS isn't really a dirt bike, but the BMW tool kit is nice and compact:
