    Tool Kit to take out riding

    Hi all,

    As thread title suggests im looking for advice on some tools ect I should be taking with me out on the ski. What I plan to do is build a small tool kit that will live in the hood even if im only on the river. My ski is a '99 XPL, I will be siliconing a waterproof container to the top of the engine tray with some tools in it (thanks SurfNturf for the idea!).

    So far im thinking:
    • 10mm Spanner
    • 12mm Spanner
    • Spark Plug puller
    • 1 set of plugs
    • Rag
    • Can of WD40/CRC
    • A few zip ties
    • Pliers
    • Pointy nose pliers

    Do you think I've missed anything?
    Do most of you guys ride with a fire extinguisher?

    Cheers,

    Chris

    Blade/Philips screwdriver
    Spare fuses for your electrical box
    Cell phone
    Tow rope
    Flare kit
    Whistle

    Fire extinguisher is mandantory in Texas. I'm sure most states are as well.

    What is it a Freekin Yamaha...? 12mm???? 10 11 13 17 are all thats on them 12mm isnt on it unless you did it. All you need is a 10mm a plug wrench and a knife. you wont need to do a rebuild. Substitute a adjustable wrench for the plug wrench and you have more than you need. Fix it at home. a Screw driver thats both Phillips and flat tip might be acceptable
    So I say a 10 inch Crescent wrench, 10mm wrench, 2 way screw driver and a pocket knife.
