     :173: new to the Trophy and starting to do some multi day rides.

    What tools should I carry, specifically what size and type wrenches/drive bits will i most likely need in order to make adjustments or to remove Tupperware to access bulbs, battery etc...are there any unusual sizes or low clearance tools needed for tight spots ?

    Hi Flyingbrick,

    It all depends on how intensely you afre going to be working on the bike.

    All of the bolts securing the Fairing and Panels can be removed with a 5mm Allen key,
    with the exception of two small plastic "Scrivets" underneath the bottom of the Fairing
    which can be quite fiddly to get out - they have a cross head screwdriver slot in them
    but that rarely works and it can be easier to pry them out while being careful
    not to damage them or scratch the paintwork.

    In my opinion it is worth investing in a 5mm hexagonal screwdriver type tool,
    as they can remove the Bolts quicker than an Allen key,
    and are less likely to slip and scracth the paintwork.



    If you ever need to take the front cockpit panels off you will need the Allen Key though,
    for 2 bolts accessed within the inner most area of the mirror pods.

    To remove the front wheel you will need a 17mm Hex tool,
    and a 6mm Allen Key for the two Pinch Bolts.



    To remove the rear wheel you will need a 15mm Socket.

    Other tools include :

    Cross Head Screwdriver,
    6mm Allen Key
    14mm, 16,mm, 17mm sockets and / or spanners,
    Torx bits / screwdriver in various sizes, e.g. T10 for the under seat storage box,
    if you ever need to access the Audio Unit mounted underneath it.

    I would also recommed the after market DealerTool device.

    Cheers  :821:

    Excellent answer, thanks. It will give me peace of mind to know that I'm prepared for some of the basic stuff.

    I carry this little 29 piece set on the bike, I like it's tiny ratchet, makes removing some of the harder to get at 5mm Allen heads quick and easy. :002:

    I carry a tubeless tyre repair set + a 12 V blower to pressurize the tyres.
    The pic is just an example.

    Yes, such a kit is a must, unless you are happy to wait hours for a recovery truck.

    Puncture repair kit, small compressor to re inflate, torch, 1/4" drive socket set, torx key to get the left side footrest plate off and a spare gear lever pivot bolt.
    When I went to Greece for 3 weeks in 1992 on my new Pan European, I didn't have any of the above and didn't even have recovery insurance as I couldn't afford it! Getting old makes you over analyse it all!!!!
