    Yes, spot on. 18mm. If you use a Champion plug ( RA6HC 5/8" hex) you can use a standard plug socket and extension.

    The tool wrap is from Northern Tool wrench set. I cut it down and added snaps where needed.

    I lucked out on the Knipex tools. Our Lowes Store had a half priced introductory sale so I bought a complete set then ditched all my old stuff.

    Also very useful tools are the 6" Ridge pipe wrench and 3" adjustable spanner. You can sure tell the ones that get the use!

    The Knipex mini bolt cutter made quick work of spokes during a re-lace project.

    Definitely a couple must haves. My baby Vice Grips saved my ass on my first wilderness "flat" experience. It was the only tool strong enough to get the back axle loose.

    This trip taught me the tools are brought along for a purpose. Pack like your life may depend on it (it did), but don't over pack (I did). Bring what you need, and not what you don't. Seems logical. These are words to live by - literally.

    Not XR related, but there are gear heads on here who will appreciate it:lol3
    This "thing" lives about a half mile from my house... right between me and Lowe's so I see it sitting in the driveway all the time. I am wondering how it would do with off-road tires? Couldn't be that bad:lol3

    :lol3 So did I :clap

    When I went and picked up my new 2007 XR650L I got to find out this was the first year they stopped supplying tool kits...I was a bit bummed since this was the first brand new motorcycle I had ever bought, I was kinda looking forward to having it.:norton
    I thought they stopped supplying a owners manual also until I called and found out that one of the employees had just left it on their desk and had forgotten to give it to me.

    At least it's a Ford engine!

    Are the dual pedals on the left "steering brakes"? :huh

    So like I've got 2 or 3 sets of new take-offs from a DRZ that I want to burn-off on my XRL, however the front is an 80/100/21 instead of the stock Honda 90/90/21. Has anyone run this size front on the XRL?

    90% of the miles are likely to be street so when I tell you these are TrailWings, don't let that influence your opinion.

    What's your thoughts on an 80/100/21 on the front of an XRL?
