    I compiled this toolkit for my 2010. The 13mm socket is for the EWS antenna substitute bolts I installed, in place of the Torx security fasteners. The conduit is both an extension handle for the ratchet and with a heavy object (rock?) an axle remover. Tire repair items are stored separately.The container (from Walmart) is 6 1/4"x8 1/2"x 2 1/2" and with the tools weighs almost exactly 4 lbs. It fits snugly in the left side BMW expandable pannier.

    Stick a BMW logo on that case and you can sell it for $699!

    Thanks Rudolph, For $100, anyone can buy the decal, and put the kit together and have money left for lunch. It was done on the cheap. Northern Tool, Walmart, Tractor Supply, Lowes , Carquest and a local hardware store are where I purchased most of the components.

    I had to fish two screws out recently. Its my first time really working on this bike, so I didn't know the usual spots screws get lost. I had to drop another one to see where it landed to find the originals.

    But yeah, having a magnetic wand to then fish them out would have made things a lot easier. :D

    RBMann and Cadreil, Thanks for the great suggestion. I'm a big fan of magnetic "Magic Wands". In fact I had to use the one in my home tool box to retrieve a lost screw from the Beemer yesterday. I'll ad one to the kit a.s.a.p.
