I carry a spare stator and gasket on my longer trips.

Clutch safety switch....mine is starting to act up, I have to pull the clutch in a couple times before it allows a start. I have taken it apart and played with it but did not help. I carried a spare to Mexico last June and pulled it off to change it and lo and behold it was the wrong one, it was for an 09 and my bike is a 2012 LOL!!
I ordered the right one and will change it out when I get back down to the bike.

+1 on the stator and gasket
Make sure to get the latest part number. Some have been stranded by the throttle position sensor. It's something I'll probably add to my kit. I carry a micro start in case I accidentally drain the battery.

Spare levers (brake and clutch) and spare clutch cable. And on our last trip a pint of Rotella.

Plus an assortment of screws, plastic rivets, wire, epoxy, magic self bonding tape and ... a lot of other small parts

Stator is a more popular answer to this question than I would have guessed. Is that particular to certain years or displacement? I carry a list of tools, kit bits and parts thats more than I care to type, but I'm a mechanic and my 04 Wee is just freakin' trashed.

Clutch cable, shift lever, chain section/repair tool would be the stuff I'd carry on a longer ride and expect I'd be most likely to need/replace.

I have a TPS, clutch safety switch, stator/gasket in the garage that could be over-nighted if need be. Don't think I'd carry those.

Never met a dog I didn't like, a machine I couldn't break, or a woman I couldn't tick off.

If the stator can stop working "just like that" on a nice vacation ride I'm going to replace that soon (this winter) along with a new rectifier at home, and while I'm spending money I'll do the fuel pump/filter thing, my 06' vee with 20k on it,.. could I get away with just doing the filter??? The clutch switch is small enough I can stash on the bike. Will the pump or filter give you warning? same with the TPS? still learning
