    It is always a good idea to carry a fue tool's around, sometimes its the simplest thing when u break down that can stop you in yous tracks, and could be fixed with a 8mm spanner and a screwdriver, My idea is to put a guide on what tools to have under ur seat as a on road survival kit lol, I try to save space so I never take alot, small tools and multi tools are good for example double ended screwdriver..

    I carry.. a 8mm spanner, adjustable spanner, double ended screwdriver, spare spark plug and simple plug socket (tube style) small long nose pliers.

    Pics of what you have under your seat tool wise would help others to know whats worth carrying, what is essential, what is a waste of space and could be replaced as somthing smaller? IF......I could buy a scooter shack survival pack lol of the best tools u would need in a little black and red pouch id have 1 just for the sake of it :)

    Hope this is seen as me making effort to give back rather than just ask ask and asking for help and info lol

    I put everything but the kitchen sink under mine,time's a teller then,to what you're needing-
    and that lovely day,you can look forward to a massive increase in top speed....due to weight re-duction,is a plus.:D :D .

    Very good idea and something that most of us wouldn't think about until we realize we need something whilst out and about. When I used to drive, I carried toolboxes in the trunk. When I started to ride, I carried a basic 1/4" socket set and a small ratchet screwdriver with interchangeable bits in a small case. Maybe also an old cloth or rag and a pair of gloves. As to remove bodywork and seat to get access to the mechanicals on scooters, that's all you need, sockets and screwdrivers. And that doesn't add much weight at all, so no need to worry about fuel economy or performance issues.
