Whats in your track day toolbox?

11 posts in this topic

or trail day?

I want to put together a simple tool set for track days and trail days.

What are the most important tools to have, and what tools can you not ride without

I bring enough tools to fix anything on the bike that is fixable outside the garage. Actually my entire tool box goes, including torque wrenches. The nearest track is 1 hour drive, next track 2.5 hour drive, no way I'm ending a day early if I can help it!

I have a 4 drawer with top tool box.

Full set of metric wrenches from 6-19mm. 22 , 27 and 30mm socket.

complete set of metric sockets 8-19mm and wrench with extensions

4 phillips and 4 flat head screw drivers different sizes.

metric allen wrench set

tire pressure guage, spoons, extra valve stem cores, valve stem remover

multimeter

spark plug coin

suspension spanner wrenches, fork cap tools for the 05

6 different pliers

Hammer

Then spares -- 6, 8 mm bolts and screws assorted sizes. A few nuts and washers. Plugs, tubes, jets, zip ties, chain lube and carb cleaner. A few extra spokes and nipples

There is really no way to pack light. Small box gets up to 100lbs very quickly with all the tools you may need for race day. I also pack my spare wheel , extra clutch setup, oil, fuel and different sprockets in the truck. On a full race weeekend with the toy hauler I have stored coolant, brake fluid, wash supplies, extra triangle stands, and some 2 stroke oil for friends if needed.

I have my trailer filled w/all my tools. Everything needed to do anything. Compressor-feeler gauges-everything. I get alot of moochers at the tracks as long as the trails :naughty:

Everytime I leave something behind, I end up needing that item. It all comes in the trailer these days.

I work on the bike at home out of the same box I use on the road. If I use it in the garage, except for air impacts and very specialized tools, it goes with me.

All that, and a cordless 3/8 drill. :naughty:

Footpeg springs??? Why

I always buy a set of footpeg springs to carry along with me...Guess I got into the habit when I had Kawasaki 's back in the 90s when they broke all the time...Never hurts to be overprepared...
