Tool Roll Bags (and Tool Kits)

Post by radare » Fri Feb 24, 2017 11:34 am

I'm in the market for a tool roll that I can stick in my new sidebags to keep a good assortment of tools for the Scrambler. Specifically, i'm thinking of one with pouches so I can fit in wrenches and roll it up. Something like this, but maybe smaller:

Inside, I'm thinking I'd include:
  • 10mm wrench
  • 12mm wrench
  • 13mm wrench
  • 14mm wrench
  • 17mm wrench
  • 24mm wrench (for axle nut)
  • 4mm metric hex key
  • 5mm metric hex key
  • 6mm metric hex key
  • 8mm metrix hex key
  • Small combo ratchet (1/4" and 3/8" drive)
  • 8mm socket
  • 10mm socket
  • 12mm socket
  • Spark plug socket
  • Shock adjusting tool
  • JIS screwdriver
  • Small flat-blade screwdriver (for pilot jets)
  • Needle nose pliars
  • Sheetrock knife
  • 1' of 1/4" fuel hose
  • 5' of 12 gauge wire
  • Spare fuses
  • Zip ties
  • Roll of black electrical tap
  • Small tire irons
  • Tube patch kit
What do you all use and what tools do you recommend?

A little flashlight
Tire plug kit
CO2 cartridges and inflator or a small 12v pump
Alligator clips
4-6 nitrile gloves
A couple condoms - Can be used to seal something off from water or mud or grit. In a real emergency, they can hold a surprising amount of fuel if supported by a shirt or towel. Maybe use some of the less exotic ones.
Go soothingly on the grease mud, as there lurks the skid demon.
