Seal Dr.

Just added one of these to my kit. I'd hate to be far from home and notice a leak. http://riskracing.com/store/19-seal-doctor.html

Wow, something from MP that isn't $$$$$$$. I've got the multi-tool, good stuff. Actually, you could probably make one from a used Windex container or something. The one I ordered, but don't have yet, seems like it would be easier to use, clipping around the fork tube. I haven't been on this thread lately, probably should pay more attention, thanks!

I just read in Noah's RTW thread that he used a cut up cover from a magazine to clean his seals...

"My fork seals were leaking BAD from the mud going into Semey. I made the mistake of not cleaning it all before the mud got hard. I took my dust seals down and cleaned them. I cut a magazine cover into a strip about 1 inch wide and pushed it up under my oil seals. I swiped them between the seal and the fork all the way around about 4 times. I left my fork guards up and the nest morning no oil had leaked. Problem fixed. For the record, 8,000 km later and they are still not leaking" -RoninMoto

Business cards are free, too, and work as good if not better than the MP seal mate. Glossy ones work the best.

(funny timing. I just fixed my left seal not 2 days ago after watching a youtube about sealmate...)

Use just any hard packing, like for batteries, or those gerbings sock packaging, or just any tick plastic packaging, and cut the sealmate shape on a 2x5 inches flat area. thats all.

I really like this brand. It is a split beam and has a click when you reach the torque. I use the 3/8" for the larger bolts and a 1/4" for smaller work.

The split beams do not go out of spec as easily as some others .

Small CO2 tire inflator

I just picked this up today. It's made by Lezyne. I plan to use this for single track / day trip sorta stuff. It filled the rear tire on my 600R to 11PSI on one 16g cartridge, like any CO2 inflator should. Quality seems good, and it's small and light. It's easily controllable, just push to inflate.
