Hi All,

I recently bought a '08 CRF450X. This is my first Honda and my first 4 stroke.
Being used to 2 stroke Yamahas all my life I'm a bit insecure regarding what tools to take on the fanny pack.

This is what I used to carry on the 2 stroke. Anyone has any suggestions? A list of what you carry on your CRF? That would be great! Thanks! :banana:

1. Wrench set: 8, 10, 12, 13, 14mm;
2. Wrench set: 8/9, 10/11, 12/13, 14/15mm;
3. Spark plug/axles wrench set;
4. Spark plug;
5. Clutch and brake levers;
6. Saline solution, in case I get something in my eyes;
7. Pliers;
8. Phillips and flat blade screwdrivers;
9. Don't know how this is called in english, but basically you mix the two compounds, mold it, plug in a hole for example, and then it solidifies;
10. Nuts and bolts;;
11. Multi-tool with allen wrenches and screwdrivers;
12. Chain link;
13. Zip ties;
14. Not in the photo, the chain breaker.

that seems like a pretty good kit. The only thing you are missing, and prob the most trail side used tool, is a set of tire irons and a tube!

I used to carry those when I went on longer rides. But it's actually pretty rare for me to get a flat tire and the irons are so heavy and cumbersome that I gave up.
I've been eyeing some cool new magnesium irons lately though. They are supposed to be light and are smaller. :banana:

Hummmm... I guess that if it comes something that serious, I'll haul it back home.

I'm not sure what's available to you, but I've always used 2 8" aluminum motion pro tire irons

just like the silver ones in this picture

Something to take the axles off maybe? motion pro make alloy tyre levers with a ring spanner on the other side. They weigh nothing and come in handy although they are a bit expensive
