I'm sure there was another thread on this topic, but I can't find it... Breaking down in the jungle, miles from civilization can really ruin your day, but if you carry essential tools and parts the most common mechanical problems can be sorted on the spot. Everyone has their own preference and I'm interested to compare notes and see if there are any critical items I'm missing. Here's what I carry: In no particular order: 8,10,12mm spanners 8,10,12,19,27mm sockets 16mm spark plug socket Socket adapter and extension Allen keys Flat head / Philips combo screwdriver Box cutter/blade Small locking vise grip Needle nose pliers Lighter Spark plug Thread lock Super glue Tube patches and glue 21" front tube (can fit in the rear if needed) Tire irons Valve core removal tool Compact air pump Duct tape Electrical tape Assorted zip ties Fuel line Small container of engine oil Gear change pedal Oil filter (if deep water expected) Disposable cotton gloves Flashlight/lantern Ratcheting tie down Clutch cable Throttle cable Tool bag/belt A small assortment of extra bolts (not shown) What do you carry? I carry enough tools and parts (gear pedal, spark plug, tubes and cables) to get me out of most any "common" mechanical bind. I mean really, a set of allen keys and 8,10,12mm spanners is about all you need to completely tear down a KLX. The 19 and 27mm sockets are to get the wheels off, and could be replaced by a crescent wrench. It's really a very simple bike. In the event of some kind of catastrophic failure, like a broken cam chain, busted rod or valve, etc. there's no way you'd fix that in the jungle. But these are tough proven bikes- if you keep up with scheduled maintenance the chances of catastrophic failure are quite minute. Unlike some goofballs who feel the need to haul a whopping 8 liters of extra fuel around :crazy: I have never needed to carry extra gas- it's important to know your range and plan accordingly but I'm constantly amazed how, even in the most remote of areas, you can pretty much always find gas.
