    Original Triumph tool kit

    Having now picked the bike up I was looking at the original tool kit and there are a lot of tools missing. Can anyone who has one complete let me know what should be in it, tools and sizes etc? I've searched on here, lots of links to tools :015: but nothing that tells me what should be in the kit. I've got a load of loose tools knocking around the garage so can probably make one up, is it worth the bother or do most just go down the oxford route?

    thanks in advance

    I cannot tell you what's in the kit as I am 250 miles away from my TTSE. But IMO, the Triumph tool kit is pretty mickey-mouse. You would be much better off deciding for yourself which tools you're likely to need by checking the bike's nuts and bolts and see what fits and getting your own tools for such.

    But with some other bikes, be careful. Especially with Japanese bikes. Probably most  owners of Japanese bikes  don't even know that Japanese don't ever even  use Phillip screws. Using a Phillip screwdriver on a Japanese bike is a great way to ruin the screws. However, even the cheapest Japanese tool kit has the correct type of JIS screwdriver. Most people who own Japanese motorcycles probably don't even know this and end up with a lot of messed up screw heads. See here for the differences.

    Thanks for the replies guys.

    Coconut, thanks :152:, that's exactly what I was after. As I said, I've loads of tools in the garage that are surplus so was working on the premise that at least the original kit should marry up to the main hex sizes etc.  I'll add the rest that I feel might be useful.

    Thanks again.

    The only tool my CBR came with was a single JIS screwdriver. I have a complete set of Hozan JIS screwdrivers.  Comparatively, the kit for the Trophy is a cornucopia of tools.

    I too have a set of JIS screwdrivers.

    Bikes came with more and better tools in the 1960s and 1970s, especially my 1971 BMW.

    But these days, IMO, there is no more reason to have a tool kit come with a motorcycle than there is with a car.

    With the stock stuff that came with my 1971 BMW, I could easily take both wheels off, take the tires off the rims, patch them and even fill them up with the stock BMW tire pump that was under the seat. I could just about take the entire bike apart with the stock tool kit.

    But there is not much we can do with the TTSE stock tool kit or with any of the tool kits that came with any of my newer bikes. But they shouldn't require much use anyway on the newer bikes.
