Elefant tool kit

I'm looking for wrench sizes, sockets, stuff you wish you'd had, that sort of thing. Basically, anything beyond the Leatherman and duct tape that are already in my bag.

hi mate, you should get one of these to follow you

but seriously, just keep an eye on the oil, and if the original tool kit isn't with the bike then 8,10,13,15,17mm spanners, 3,4,5,6,8mm hex keys, plug spanner -short box type, philips and slotted screwdriver, 6,7mm nut spinners. one of those foam puncture fix in a can things. just take it easy and i'm sure you won't need any of it. would be reasuring if previous owner has kept it well maintained.

safe journey

ps don't get paranoid when you hear a funny noise
