Perfect fit Toolkit !
« on: Saturday, 03 September 2022, 11:54 am »
Hi All,

Some time ago I bought an "Oxford Motorcycle Toolkit"..
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Oxford-Bike-Tool-Kit-Pro/dp/B00YBOT2OG/ref=sr_1_3?adgrpid=54811251762&gclid=Cj0KCQjw08aYBhDlARIsAA_gb0efhccN2EO2GMrERkVpqdXAYNfD-0QhQM3UWcLBw9b93i0q6y1p79caArjMEALw_wcB&hvadid=259047295853&hvdev=c&hvlocphy=9046573&hvnetw=g&hvqmt=e&hvrand=11673890239485654444&hvtargid=kwd-314672146725&hydadcr=7263_1742153&keywords=oxford+tool+kit+pro&qid=1662169766&sr=8-3

Yesterday I discovered it fits absolutely perfectly under the seat in place of the original toolkit (which now lives in a drawer at home)..
It literally "wodges" (Technical term) into the place where the original went so you dont even lose any underseat storage!

That looks awesome 😎
In 20+ years of ownership I don’t think I’ve ever even opened my Suzuki supplied one 🤨

The only thing of any real use in the OEM toolkit is the plug spanner and corresponding open ended spanner.

Nice one Speedy, that's going on the shopping list.  The suzuki kit is woeful.  I still have mine under the seat, but never used any of it.
I try to take one day at a time, however sometimes several days catch up with me at once.

One thing that doesn't have though (and the Suzuki one is woeful but it is there and it kinda works) is a ring spanner for the rear axle nut.
