The rear fender mounted toolbag on my (new for me) XR650L was empty when I bought it.
What items did it come with and what items should be added to carry with me at all times?
Thanks

If your riding an "L" I would suggest such items as:

1. comb and styling gel
2. Mirror or small compact case
3. lip balm
4. finger nail emery-board

Hey Wheelnut46, I think he was just kidding, if not don't pay attention to him. I looked up you're bike, and I think it's a nice looking machine. I don't know what he's talking about. I too just got a new bike, the 2006 KLX 250s, So JackAttack what do you have to say about that? :applause:

wheelnut the "R" model is revered for it's Baja rated power and durability. The "L" model is known for it's weight and detuned engine.

It's a nice bike but alot of these guys are dirt riding the four stroke and street riding a big 650 will not appeal to them.

The trick is to find a license plated XL605R. Or in my case I found a plated KTM, went down in size a bit because I'm not street riding it really.....

oh, ok I get it. The hostility is caused by the frustration of having to wrench on the bike just to get it street legal then the constant worry that dirt might clog the radiator.
It's ok, I understand. I have friends that drive Fords.

BUWAHAHAHAHA

Just funnin' with ya.

regarding your toolbag contents, .. for your 'L' model, an empty toolbag is just about what you will need ... some of us do carry TOOLS in it, for riders of other models ... :applause:

That's a good idea, you'll want to be prepared when it finally happens to you for the first time.

lets see here...

100 miles out from nowhere, on the dirt, hauling ass on the 650R and something goes wrong.

would you rather have a few rubbers in your pocket or have enough gear to get your ass home?

Sometimes, I will pack a bottle of Cabo Wabo, a couple of lemons and a cell phone to call for help. :applause:

By then, I would be in no hurry to get rescued. :ride:

I thought they came with a plug wrench and a owners manual. Those stock fender bags are not all that useful. Replace it with a Chase Harper rear fender bag (they have a lifetime warrantee). Then you will have room to carry enough tools to totally dismantle the bike in the field. Not a likely scenario on a Honda but you never know. :applause:

You may also want to carry a little epoxy for repairing the cases in case of a nasty tip over.My bike came with all the tools until I forgot to close the bags ziper.Also you may change all of the slotted screws with socket heads so you will only need a few hex wrenches.they take up less space in the smallish tool bag and are less prone to stripping.Hapy roosting.
