1)"Must have" tools for the garage
I want to be able to do general maintenance, jetting, tire changes etc maybe even go so far as doing the YZ timing thing on my own, but will probably draw the line at the "how the &"%? do I get this thing back together again" type tinkering !
I already have a reasonable selection of standard tools; socket wrenches, wrenches, allen keys, pliers, screwdrivers etc etc.
2) Recommended 'service' manual ?

Trail pack: enough drinking water, special spark plug tool and something to turn it; spark plug; enough tools to take the tank off to change the plug (10, 12mm sockets and a long extension for my IMS); 8, 10, 12mm etc. sockets and/or wrenches; bailing wire; duct tape; pliars (needle nose, channel lock, vice grips - miniature versions); screwdriver(s); first aid kit; matches; powerbars; space blanket; tow strap; flashlight; water purification tablets or filter...
Just something to get you started. I'm still learning and adjusting my garage and pack. I've gone from carrying next to nothing while riding to carrying too much, now working my way back towards the middle. The pack gets heavy quick.
Try to get a seperate set of tools for each space so that you don't have to break your pack open in the garage, and accidentally leave something important behind.
