    Amazingly good report :thumb

    Did you put down the estimate of how much all that weighs together, by any chance? Thanks!

    It's come full circle, when the BMW guys give BMW guys crap! Too funny!

    Hey, Wendell, how did you fix the cracked engine case? I didn't see that in your post!

    Good information!

    That's quite a list and a very good thread.

    What would really be killer though is if you photographed everything in nice neat order and posted that. Not all in one photo however ... although that WOULD be impressive. :D

    OK - I gotta question.

    I've got a 990. The factory toolkit has a 12mm hex key. What the ^%$%^% is it for? I can find nowhere to use this tool.

    Any ideas?

    To remove the rear suspension u need a 12mm hex key, and to turn the engine around when checking your valves u need a 14mm hex key.

    Thanks Dirty - I needed that. Might just remove that item as I think I wouldn't remove suspension in the field. As a matter of fact, I'd gladly trade that hex key for a spark plug wrench, if you know what I mean.

    The 'bottle opener" is a torque wrench extender for the cylinder bolts.

    Instead of the bulky heavy tie-downs, I carry two 6' (2m) pieces of 1/8" spectra (aramid fibre) line (rope). Has a SWL of about 500KG (1,100 lbs). To give idea of size , would all fit inside a cigarette packet. Tie the 2X 2m pieces together and you have a tow rope.

    Just came across this excellent post, only a few years late to the party but it deserves a bump. Whether you do or don't believe in carrying that many tools on your trips this is a great way to see how to approach it and how you can really store that all fairly easily on the bike.

    Thanks very much!
