I got an idea to save space. Get one of those screwdrivers with swappable heads which is stored in the handle itself. Most come with a range of Phillips head (#2 and #3 should be most commonly used) and flat heads, and also hex heads (#4-#6 most common). That should cover a lot of bases.

 

Then instead of wrenches, I think I can save space by keeping a simple 3/8" dr ratchet handle with a variety of commonly used socket sizes. 8, 10, 12, 14, and one long socket for the spark plugs, and one extension.

 

One small to medium sized adjustable wrench and a pair of pliers should top it up.

I have this set at home, very compact and handy like what you described :thirsty:

 

The ratchet handle and sockets are 1/4" square drive.

Nice stuff! How big is the box??

 

180mm X 98mm X 52mm

 

Obviously too big for most underseat storage space.

 

It is about the size of a large pencil case, didn't take up much space if you have panniers or rear box.

Good idea to keep the tyre repair kit in the bike. But do you also carry a bicycle pump, or how do you inflate the tyre once you've patched it?

Lots of petrol kiosks in the west, so I just slowly ride to one before patching.

Bajaj Pulsar 180 - UG3 (2007 - )

Suzuki GSXR-400 (2008 - 2009)

Piaggio Vespa GT 200L (2009 - 2011)

Where can we get these canisters? Are they rechargeable?

 

some tyre repair kits have canisters. you can get from Regina or Ah Boy.

 

they are CO2 canisters so i am not sure about refilling, additional canisters can get from most bicycle shops.

Canisters can't be refilled. It is a one time use only. The good thing is it is small and portable but then you will need a few to inflate a tire especially if yours is a 190 tire. I personally carry a small bicycle pump. Unlimited supply of air but then also means endless pumping action just to inflate the tire. Pro and con on each devices.

 

As for the tools, I will say

 

1) Socket wrench (1/4")

2) 1/4" socket (M8,10,12,13,14,17)

3) 1/4" Allen key (M4~8) bit

4) 1/4" Screw bit (+/-)

5) Original Spark plug tools

6) Original Axle nuts tools

7) Original plier or a long nose plier

8) Tire patch kit. I only put in the one that is used to push in the worm. Cut the handle slightly shorter to make it more portable.

9) Canister or Bicycle pump. Depends on your seat space

10) Jump start cable. I fabricate a small one myself.

11) Touch Light.

 

That what I have under my bike seat.
