For Vince, Ace and all you guys with vast RE experience.What is the preferred contents of a toolkit? This is for Classic toolboxes only, (I also have the AVL, so my toolboxes are post-air filter and still have the intrusive bracket inside). No Electra or Military, no extra add-on pouches or boxes please.Last year, I stuffed extra tools in, only to have the right box pop open in my driveway from too much weight behind it, (I like the boxes, but they're very tinny). So what are the bare essentials that you can / must carry aside from the factory kit?
The stock toolkit on my previous Enfield ('09 AVL Classic) included a Philips screwdriver, a box wrench and tommy bar, a pair of wretched short flimsy tire spoons, a pair of wrenches that were 8mm on one end and 10mm on the other (going from memory), a 12mm/13mm wrench, and one other wrench of a size I don't recall. It also came with one or two big wrenches - like a 22mm/24mm, and I think a 13/16", but those two didn't fit in the little pouch.My used iron barrel came with a little cloth roll packed with probably a dozen Craftsman wrenches, along with the box wrench and tommy bar.
What's a Tommy Bar? I thought that's where the deaf dumb and blind kid goes for a drink and maybe some pinball.
