tool kit
I don't have one. I think there was mention of it when I bought it but don't recall. So, I'm kinda pondering gettin one for posterity... Then again I might just skip it.

Anybody use them? Out on the road?

I've used some honda oem tools but reach for something different and carry a bit more to boot.

The only reason I see assembling the tools (didn't see a part# for the whole kit) is to have it for re-sale. I think when I added everything up it was more than $50. I could buy a lot of tools for that at HF. Smile

If something goes awry out and about I reckon I'll need a tow truck and a credit card instead.

It is what it is.

RE: tool kit
I didn't scour this for the exact post, but I believe there is a section in this thread that talks about tool kits to carry on the bike http://cb1100forum.com/forum/showthread.php?tid=437

RE: tool kit
I like to be reasonably prepared, even if to tighten a mirror after it gets bumped. A quality set of 1/4" drive Metric hex bits (Allen) is $50 from McMaster-Carr.

Under the seat:

Compact foot pump (over battery)
Can of SealNAir (over battery)
Plug kit (over battery)
Tool pouch (rear of fuses/cross bar)
1/4 ratchet, 3" & 6" extensions
1/4" drive 3, 4, 5, 6 & 8 mm Allen bits
1/4" drive 8, 10, 12, 14 mm hex sockets
1/4" drive #2 & #3 Phillips
Open end wrenches from my last Yamaha, including 10, 12, 14 & 17.
Larger combo wrench from my last Yamaha (19 x 22mm)

The space for the U lock has a 24" flat bungee.

Nice to have that much space!

RE: tool kit
Thanks E.S. and Sp.Doc.

I need to put something together.

Space huh! I'm used to 83' G.Wing Interstate space. I carried tools and spares.

It is what it is.

RE: tool kit
Down here in the Antipodes we got the entire Honda tool kit. On the road, I've used a couple of bits of it a couple of times, but mostly for problems with other people's bikes rather than my CB.

RE: tool kit
It might be worthwhile to consider a tool set from Cruz.

RE: tool kit
Consider your mechanical abilities, and what you can do on the side of the road. Personally plugging a tire, adjusting a chain, maybe changing out a fuse, or a light bulb ( although I don't carry spare bulbs), or replacing a battery are what I am capable of doing .... so on a trip I carry tools that will accomplish those tasks. Anything more complicated than that and I'm calling for a tow.

RE: tool kit
Just to extend this a bit, my 2014 CB only came with 3-4 tools. I asked the dealer about it and they ordered in all the missing tools from Honda free of charge.
Some time ago (couple of years?) there was a thread about the missing tools.
My Bonneville didn't come with any tools so I bought a metric set of Cruz tools which is why I suggested them.

RE: tool kit
I just have CB basic tool+ and tire repair kit.
Even with my automotive skills not much more I can do on the road, realistically.
