And you have a tool that is designed to work on the bike as well.
Especially if you own a Ural.
I was checking my email, and i got a alert for this tool, its on sale and it seems a good one for the road
Thanks Jacan - its in my local store and for the price I may check it out.
Ok Guys, I've been lurking this thread from around the time of its inception and have gone thru 3 fully functional tool kits/systems refining and fine tuning. My Hip pack has worn out to the point of almost scattering all my tools so I broke down and bought Klim's Scramble Pak here. Thought it would be a good opportunity to take some pics and share what I've come up with.
The Hip Belt comes with me almost always. The Backpack too. The fender bag I leave home when I'm feelin lucky or if I stuff a 21" tube in my backpack. When I'm racing crosscountry 1.5 hour races I pare down the backpack to pretty much water only and cross my fingers. Long Baja trips see all the gear plus camping and food in my Giant Loop. Warm Clothes get Stowed accordingly to the ride.
Almost everything I have has been used when out on the trail either on my bikes or my buddys'. It's a little heavy, but I also use this pack to pit crew at Baja 1000 races and it goes in my truck to help out anyone I see along the road. The 1/4" sockets and ratchet get used the most and are sometimes a little too small. The pliers get used so much I don't want to scale them down. The chain tool is too heavy, but i'm glad I have it when I need it!

This little wrench is practically indestructible and compact. It has been shown before in this thread as the Husky 16 piece reversible microdriver set $16.97. The Gearwrench comes with more sockets and bits and is cheaper.
I have been using one for a year now and it can take a lot of abuse. I just ordered a second one for my work toolbox.
Just remember to replace the hex bits, They come with SAE bits.
That's also the same kit as the "Cobalt" branded stuff at Lowes. I paid about that for mine on sale. The wrench works well!
and the same one at home depot, dont remember the branding but same product, same price.
That little wrench is AWESOME. Highly recommended.
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
You can also use this. A lot less money..
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
As an aside,I use feeler gauges to clean mine every now and then.
Business cards are free, too, and work as good if not better than the MP seal mate. Glossy ones work the best.
or photographic film... if you can find it.
(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.
