replacing toolbags/kits/rolls (KTM)
« on: November 15, 2021, 08:56:02 am »
yesterday I lost my tooltube with toolroll inside.


lets have a moment






Okay, so far I have been building my own toolkits and its a schlep and sometimes you dont cover everything.
The 1290 I recently got is tool-less, so this is specifically for the 1290.
What does the collective say, KTM toolkit? (which I cant seem to google) or Cruz tools or build your own kit?

it needs to be compact, I have a decent idea of what to get, so can source a toolroll and stock it up after a shopping spree at Midas, but as I am starting from scratch, not so sure that is best option/value for money.

Will also be on the lookout for a solid mounted lockable toolbox this time.

We do this one - this is R1995 with the pre-existing tools - HOWEVER, I can add/remove any tools you require, and adjust the pricing accordingly.
Or, the loos roll is R345 including vat, we have stock of both.....

I bought one of those Desert Fox toolkits when I had my AT (since mine came with a screwdriver only)
My 1190 is missing most of its tools from the standard tool bag, so I just use the Desert Fox kit. Only thing it doesnt have is the correct size socket for the wheel. But I do at least have the KTM spanner.

Been very impressed with the Desert Fox kit. Good quality and the Enduro version I have has just enough of what you need

Desert Fox tool kits will be back in stock next week

The components are individually selected from various manufacturers( 13 in total)  for optimal biking use.

Kits are custom made for each brand of bike and meet or exceed Din and Ansi standards.

This will ensure that they will not let you down when you need them most.

All toolkits will also be upgraded to meet any changes in wheel nut sizes that manufacturers make from time to time e.g. deep sockets etc

Haha thanks.
Still under the radar, maybe because I havent broken much on it yet!


Thanks for all the replies, appreciate it. Will have to go do some homework on which set I find most applicable.



Maybe a question in the meantime, I have never used a vise grip on the bike, also not at home. This necessary? I do carry a leatherman as well.

Maybe not completely necessary - we based the kit on an American unit many years ago - so we can easily remove that and adjust the costs accordingly. At home I have 2 that get used often - for holding bolts that need cutting/grinding, welding - all sorts of little things - removing broken studs......

There is also the "Long-Nose" or "Pincer" version that is popular in Europe - we can do that if required.....

Leatherman is a staple tho, that goes in my tank-bag - first thing that gets used, every time - I was gifted a PST2 in 1995 - i still use it almost daily.... on the 4th pouch....

Vice grip can bite better than a Leatherman in your hand. Vice grip can make bolts round if it slips but they are good emergency tools.

Shifting spanners have a habit of rounding nut heads and would avoid if possible

agree with shifting.
Problem is something like a 17 spanner for fork preload adjust is a big spanner and a socket doesnt fit.

I have a socket that fits on that adjuster on my 1190. Much easier to adjust it using the ratchet

You get one of those double ended vice grips for metric and imperial, then you sorted.

Maybe not completely necessary - we based the kit on an American unit many years ago - so we can easily remove that and adjust the costs accordingly. At home I have 2 that get used often - for holding bolts that need cutting/grinding, welding - all sorts of little things - removing broken studs......

There is also the "Long-Nose" or "Pincer" version that is popular in Europe - we can do that if required.....

Leatherman is a staple tho, that goes in my tank-bag - first thing that gets used, every time - I was gifted a PST2 in 1995 - i still use it almost daily.... on the 4th pouch....

Just a question on that.. do you know where one can find the long nose version without any teeth on the jaws? I need to use one to clamp down water hoses in the car.

You actually get specific locking pliers for that - I am looking now!
