Tool Kit
« on: March 17, 2011, 09:47:27 PM »
Hi all,

Can new owners confirm if any sort of basic tool kit is supplied with the bike.
I note there is one on the "create my Triumph" web-site for 40 !

My Honda had one as standard.

Cheers

As is normal, it's pretty crap.  I ditched most of it and made up my own with additional and better quality items, bunged them in a roll bag and stuffed it where the OE kit was.  Job done  :028:
Sometimes I like to squat down, put my arms around my legs and lean forward but that's just how I roll.

The Triumph toolkit offered in the accessory range for 40 quid is pretty good quality it has to be said. made by cruz tools. Not by any means all you may need but not a bad starting point.

Is this bike metric? I have a Cruz tool kit I carry on another bike, it's come in handy more than once. Not 'shop' quality but miles ahead of what's typically supplied with a bike.

I'd be amazed if it doesn't use  metric fasteners

Of course it 's metric.  Only the USA persist with imperial.  :015:

Ooooh KildareMan, you freakin well did it now :001: Living in Canada, betwixt and between the old world and new from an import perspective, it's the norm to have a mixed toolkit. Not for bikes but for nearly every GD thing! We went metric in the 70s fully expecting the US to do the same. In about 2 years it was like a bad mushroom trip; everything was the wrong size! :125:
