KTM Adventure tool kit

Somebody was wanting a stock KTM 950-990 Adventure tool kit. This is in response to that.

Although the stock tool kit from KTM is better than most other brands, it’s still not very good. Open end wrenches, no matter the quality, are for the most part useless. I carry the KTM spark plug wrench that came with my 950 Adventure, the plier, the screw-driver and the bottle opener.

I went over the bike and noted the size of ever screw, bolt, nut, torx, and allen on the entire motorcycle. I then went to the tool store and picked out high quality open-box end wrenches, ratchet and sockets, and such placed them in a nice big tool roll-bag from Road Gear. Everything just just barely fits into the tool tray under the seat, and would not fit into the tool tray of the 990. I also carry a tubeless tire repair kit, (my 950 is now tubeless) some Co2 bottles, an bicycle tire pump (inside the fairing cover), tire irons, patches, rubber glue (for other people’s bikes), tie-wire, duct tape, a few bulbs, zip-ties, a lighter and knife. I can remove the motor with the tools I have on board.

I have the tools needed for quick adjustments and wheel removal just under the seat so I don’t even need to get the tool roll out. You’ll have to look at the pictures to get the picture.

Wal-Mart. It is a stadium seat pad people buy to take to ball games--or Super Cross! Just lay out the tools, mark around them and cut--not all the way through though.

The helmet cable hock is at the left-hand rear of the air box, unless it's been removed.

OR better yet, check craigslist as people are always getting rid of that kind of stuff, some sell some give away, but better than shopping at walmart!. I am also, I have 6 or 7 sheets that measure about 7'x4', barely fits in the back of a full size bed.
