I am leaving on my trip in 1 week and I am compiling tools to take for me should I need some roadside repairs. The bike currently has 101 miles on it so I am going to have to adjust the chain on the road. What size tools are needed to adjust the chain? The cable adjusters up by the bars?
Thanks! Oh and the bike is 2500 miles away from me so I cant go out to my garage and check. Fly and ride.
I pretty much carry the stock tool kit. A rail of metric Allen heads from 5.5mm to 10mm. 8,10,12 and 24mm sockets A 3/8 drive torque wrench. A digital air pressure gauge and a tire plug kit with pump. Extra light bulbs, fuses, and can of chain lube. Add a couple rags and a couple pairs of latex gloves.
Anything you can't fix with that will probably require a tow.
To adjust the chain, a 22mm, and a 24mm. Wrenches or sockets, I like my long 1/2" drive breaker bar with socket to bust it loose. Everything you need is in the OEM tool kit though, just less leverage, so you will need to provide more ummmpppphhhh!
