It's normally stored at the back end of the right hand saddlebag - there's a little compartment there for it.

You never can tell what the PO may have done with them or if they are still around on a 30 year old bike.
The PO had stuck the owners manual in a plastic bag inside the false tank on my '86 Aspy.
You can find the owners manual online in lots of places and the OEM tool kit is really worthless.
You're better off putting together a small pouch of tools that you are going to use.
If I use a tool during regular maintenance, I try and put another in my tool kit to carry.
It's never too late to have a happy childhood!
