    Kawasaki 300x Emergency Tools and Recovery Kit

    Hey guys,

    I'm double checking my tool kit and thought I'd see what everyone else carry's.

    Here is my list
    Phillips Head and Flat Head (reversible) screw driver
    6, 7, 8, 10, 12, 13 and 14mm sockets and driver with extension bar
    Hex driver for Ride Plate and Grate
    Small Hose Clamp (that fits water hoses)
    Large Hose Clamp (that fits air intake hoses)
    2 x Brake Clamps that get used to pinch the two water lines if I need to be towed
    Length of water hose (enough to go between most places)
    Small Piece of Emery Paper (to clean electrical connections)
    Stanley Knife
    Small Dry Rag
    6 x Strong black Cable Ties
    Small Roll of Duct Tape

    Besides this, I carry two ropes, have a bilge pump, a collapsible oar, UHF Radio/GPS and mobile phone (a waterproof one if I'm riding longer distance alone).

    What should I add to this list? I was thinking spark plug and socket but I've never had one fail (BUT the current set is over 100 hours now, changed at 60 but nothing wrong with the 60 hour ones... I was thinking of carrying one of those just in case).

    Cheers, Mal.

    You need the plug wrench and a 17mm. Trust me.

    I used to pack my "oh shit bag" as in "oh shit the ski is sinking, quick grab the bag!" I had basically everything on there but I also pack a wrench to turn the driveshaft which can help if you have something in the pump and need to clear it. I packed a few extra fasteners of different sizes, 3 of each clamp so I could fix larger hoses in a pinch, 2 brass hose nipples, needle nose pliers, electrical tape, mechanics gloves that Rod gave me at the Hahn a few years ago (thanks Mr.Rod) and some fresh water.

    Sean

    Dang you guys are prepared. I pretty much have a fire extinguisher and my registration paper work. That's it. Are you guys doing some long distance stuff or going out in the ocean or what's the deal?

    Mal, I also carry plugs, tools for these, a torch(highly recommend a LED LENSER P7), and tools for clearing debris out of the jet unit (we do a bit of small, shallow river riding).

    Pretty much all my riding is in the Ocean. Most of our rides take us 30 miles from the ramp. I pull out my toolbag probably four times a year. Oddly it's always been used to get a Yamaha or Seadoo going again, not joking, but that's what it's there for. It's got heaps of guys going again.

    Thanks for your list Sean.

    Keep the suggestions coming guys.

    Cheers, Mal.

    funny thing mal i never carry any extra than what the ski already has in its own toolbag, except a knife and 1 spare spark plug. dont over think it but i do understand this is for your 3month road trip of which you may need to be self suffecient.
