Hello!

A basic tool kit is a must-have on every motorcycle. But when buying a used motorcycle, it often happens that you don’t get the OEM tool kit with the bike. Such thing happened to me when I bought my KLE. So for two years I have been riding around without the basic tools on the bike, but luckily I didn’t need them. So better to be safe than sorry I bought myself a Kriega tool roll and will be kitting it out with all the tools I think I will need on the road or trail (list of tools I will use is at the bottom).

Here is the tool roll folded up (135 x 225mm):

It is strapped together with a Velcro:

Unfolding it:

When fully opened, it is quite big. Looking at pictures on the web, I didn’t imagine the size of it. It says on the web that it is 550 x 225mm when unfolded, but when I measured it including the flaps it is 600x330mm. Max tool length to still be on the inside of the flaps would be 225mm, but I would suggest 220mm. There is a lot of elastic loops for keeping the tools in place.

There is also a coated-mesh zip pocket on the left side of the roll for all those small items like spare fuses, patches, some wires,…

Kriega has a 10-year guarantee on this tool roll, which is one of the longest guarantees I have ever seen anywhere. I doubted that the materials and build quality would be that good but now that I have it in my hands I am very impressed. The whole thing is made out of 1000D Dupont Cordura and the zipper is YKK. Here take a look:

Now all I have to do is to fill it up with tools. Here is a list of what I will be putting in before the season for riding opens.

My tool kit:
Allen keys: 3, 4, 5, 6 and 8
Wrenches: 8, 10, 12, 14, 15, 17, 21 and 24 (MP Combo lever)
Screwdrivers: Philips #2, #3; flat 7mm
Pliers or a Leatherman multi-tool
OEM spark plug tool
Tyre irons
Patches and glue
Wires and zip-ties
Hand/CO2 pump

Here is a picture of a nicely organized Kriega tool roll from advrider:

So after 2 years and changing the bikes in between I have revised my tool kit. Kriega tool bag is still looking like new. Well here is my current tool kit, without tyre irons.

    Nicely organised. I just bought this tool roll but I find that the elasticated loops don’t make it easy to get stuff in and out of. Trying to figure out the best way to load it up with my gear which includes a lot of socket, one of which is a 24mm for the sump plug.
