Tool Kit advice

Post by alastair.kj » Thu Jul 11, 2013 2:26 pm



Hi, I'm new here as well as to motorcycles and Goldwings (just got my licence and first bike within the past couple months and went with a 1981 GL1100 interstate).

I need to put together a tool kit and am wondering a) if anyone could tell me exactly what comes in the original tool kit for this bike and b) what tools YOU have/think that I should have (if not included in the original kit).

I plan to travel with this bike so it'll be mostly road side maintenance as well as some light tinkering as I get to know the bike a little better so I need the tool kit to be thorough as well as somewhat compact (for storage purposes).

I look forward to your input.

Cheers

Just go to flea bay and type in

gl1100 tool kit. You will see the tools that are in the bikes.
I added a crescent wrench to my tools.

I almost use exclusively the tool bag when I work on muy bike at home , so I know what I have and what tool I need.--In case I am on the road and need to do a repair.

Try this link to flea bay

welcome to the forum. I know you will have other questions so ask away--as there is no dumb question if asked--

Do your self a favor and change out the timing belts-If they go you are pretty much done with the engine. You can get the belts at napa.

Hope you enjoy your ride
