Hey guys, I am looking to put together a small tool kit for my Grom. I suppose I could go to Honda and buy the tools but I believe even Harbor Freight has better quality tools than the ones that typically come in a Honda kit - when Honda used to include kits.

So, keeping in mind the VERY limited space under the seat, what tools have you guys thought about carrying?

I already have a tiny flashlight that has come in handy.

I know I want a Philips head driver to adjust the idle occasionally.

Im thinking I might go ahead and order the Honda plug wrench and carry a spare plug.

Maybe a couple of wrenches to adjust the chain?

What are your ideas?

Thanks.

Recommended List:
Small Flashlight
Philips /Regular Screw Driver
Plug Wrench with PLug
Hex Keys
10,12,14,17 mm wrenches
Tire Plug Kit

I carry hex keys to tighten anything that needs to be, especially because I have aftermarket mirrors and rear sets.

I could take my 82 XL250 almost completely to pieces using the supplied tool kit.

Things like axle nuts dont need anything like the speced torque. I rode from tx to nj with a rear axle torqued toZERO.

oh no kit in a grom!

10,12,14 mm wrenches for starters. combo philips regular, plug kit, bicycle sized fix a flat

for starters you want to be able to fix a flat.

Thought about that but I am not sure there is really enough in that kit to do what I might want to do out on the road.

Save your money...

Tool kit as supplied by Honda



1 combination screwdriver, flathead, crosshead
1 combination spanner, 10mm 14mm
1 combination box spanner, 19mm & plug
1 hex wrench (Unmarked, but looks like 5mm)

It's not what's in it but the really nasty quality.
Ok so I'm a bit fussy when It comes to tools
I guess so is Sassy Chassis:wink:

A pair of Vice Grips. Short of being able to plug and refill a tire there ain't much you can't do with them. Yeah, they bugger things up but you can always replace the hardware later.

I say this and I'm the guy who carries a 15 pound bum bag full of tools...

I am thinking that is about all you would need. Too bad we don't get those with the bike.

If done with care vicegrips usually have no significant detriment to the fasteners integrity.

Your sense decorum may take a hit however and lead you to spend money to rectify the situation.

I carry needlenose pliers to remove a nail from a tire, a small hand held bicycle pump and a tire patch kit, along with a small led flashlight in my backpack. That's all.
