I know what they do and roughly how to use them, but I'm not sure what some of them are called, so feel free to help and I will edit this post accordingly.



1,2,3= 12mm, 10mm, 8mm Hex wrenches
4= Wire brush
5= 27mm,22mm wrench
6-11= Asahi Lightool Wrenches 24/12 , 19/17 , 12/14 , 11/13 , 8/10 , 5.5 / 7 mm
12=EMGO chain breaker
13=1/4" Swivel socket
14=Adapter for 1/4" to #18 and #19 bits
15=1/4" Thumb driver
16=Wire cutters
17=Needlenose pliers
18=Flat and Phillips bits
19=6,5,4,3,2.5,2mm Hex bits
20=Vice Grips
21=EMGO Spoke wrench
22=BikeService Tire Irons
23=EMGO Safety wire tool
24=Hacksaw blade
25=1/4" Socket
26=L-Tool for #18 and #19 bits
27=1/4" Extension
28=1/4" "Thingy"
29=Adapter for 1/4"
30=Bit extension
31=V-Strom spark plug tool from OEM toolkit
32=Razor blade
33=7,8,9,10,11,12,13,14mm sockets. I put different width of black tape around the base to visually indicate size.



I took my V-Strom apart and kept track of what I used, then browsed the toolkit thread here on ADV. I live in China, and don't have access to mail ordering all the fancy stuff you guys can, so I headed down to the tool market and purchased the best stuff I could find. Most of it is mid-grade quality, but good enough for a portable toolkit.

Originally I had this set of wrenches, 850 Grams.



While shopping in Hong Kong one day, I ran across these Asahi Lightool ones.



Really nicely made and they were only about $25 for the set.



Very compact.



And only 394 Grams.



This kit works for most everything in fleet and has been seriously abused on many rides in China. The Wolfman roll still looks like new and saved the day a few times.

Cheers!

+5 to China V

A Bigthank you to China V for the extremely well done and helpful repost on your tool roll breakdown, especially the weight in grams of those kool Ashai wrenches. From the looks of your stable you haven't overlooked anything there either, wowee!

He charged like a buck and a half to ship it too.

His fanny pack is bad ass too if you 're of that persuasion.

I would be interested in getting a set of the Asahi lightweight wrenches also... If someone is putting together an import order and needs to get a certain quantity for either price pointing or shipping just let me know. They look very nice, might be worth a try.

I wonder how well they stack up against the Motion Pro Titanium wrenches. The problem with the Motion Pro's are that they are the the same combination size for each wrench, not two different sizes. So you would need twice the wrenches with the Motio Pro's. I would also like to know which ones might be stronger or more durable.

Does anyone have a set of the Motio Pro titanium wrenches that could possibly weigh them for us, so we could compare. It's still probably cheaper for the Asahi ones tho.

I picked up the metric version of this tool roll from Sears. Nicer than the tool kit that came with my R6 or FZ1. There is room to put other tools into it. The roll-up snaps closed and if you stuff a lot of items in it you probably can't get the snap to line up. Would have been better with a buckle strap closure.

I don't have an exact address for where I bought these, it was in the Sham Shui Po market. Take the MTR to Sham Shui Po and use exit C2. When you come out, you will be on Apliu St. There are several tool shops on that street, I don't remember which shop I purchased from.

Next time I go to HK, I will try to find them again.

Cheers!

ChinaV You Started It!!

Mr. ChinaV, you caused quite a sensation with those Asahai wrenches!
You've got all us Yanks in a tizzy about how to get ahold of them. Aparently there is also a mini set of them as well. Supposedly there is a Candian company which may be able to get them. For now we're putting a lot of responsibility on you! Maybe you can find an importer that is capable in sending them here to us. Meanwhile, your photos were great, you presentation teriffic, now just get us them wrenches....!!!!

Custom Options

I made my own to get it custom for the tools I carry:


But if I was going to do it over again I would have this guy:

do one for me. My sewing machine doesn't like sewing heavy stuff. I like it being white so I can find the hardware or small tools that are setting on it while I am working on the bike.
