Putting Together Tool Kit
« on: February 15, 2011, 01:12:10 AM »
Can someone who already has possession of their bike post a list of the various tools needed for service? I'll start building my tool kit to help kill the time why I wait for the bikes to hit the US. Thanks in advance.

Well you'll need the same oil filter as most other Triumphs and therefore a removal tool.  The cup type are best.

If the sparks are anything like the 1050 then a spark socket with a 100mm extension wobble bar and a small ratchet, I use a stubby 3/8 drive.  Number 1 on the 1050 is a pain to remove.
Chain tension, a big arsed socket & extension bar.  (1050 is 27mm)

As a general rule I try to carry just for the bike, so rather than a full set of allen keys I carry just those that fit the bike, same with sockets and bits.

Are you talking about a toolkit to carry around on the bike or for your garage? If for the latter, a quality torque wrench (or two) is where I'd begin.

i was looking for a good torque wrench - anyone have any recommendations?
ideally one that has just the right torque range for the tiger.

In my experience, you really need two. One of larger size (sorry, forget US sizes now) for higher torques for wheel and sprocket nut and one that is accurate in the lower range for all the bits and bolts of the bike.

so if that happens again, back screen, highlight your post then copy it (Ctrl C), login and repost. its a pain in the arse but there precious little else we can do about it.

Admin thinks its some roumanian scumbags, I've no reason to doubt him, but the nasty little gremlins in my mind have their doubts

a set of tyre levers and a decent pump will likely be required by us on the hardcore Tiger
Countries I've ridden: Scotland, England, Wales, Northern Ireland, Ireland, France, Switzerland, Spain, Andorra, Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Norway, Canada (hired bike).
Memorable places: Applecross, Barra, Calanish, Lascaux, Pyrenees, Connemara, Tofino, Lillooet, Sulphur Mountain, Nordkapp, Dalsnibba, Borgund stavkirke.

This is the toolkit that came with my bike - not a patch on the KTM's though. You should be able to make out the tools, but if not they are:
27mm spanner for wheel nuts, together with extension bar
12+10mm OE spanner
13mm OE spanner
5mm allen key
cross/flat head screwdriver & handle
