The Kawasaki tool kit is much more comprehensive and useful than the miserable apology for a kit  provided on more expensive BMW bikes!

I doubt the 2020 one is, it's pathetic. I wish I'd kept my 2016 toolkit, that was way better.

I've always added to the kit anyway, but this thing was ridiculous!

Agreed. The 2020 tool kit is ridiculous.
I have added to mine some Allen keys so I can adjust the rear chain while out and also access fairing panels for fuse replacement, a 10/12 mm open ended spanner and a old tea towel for cleaning dirty hands.
In my bumbag I keep a full set of mini fuses and smalll leatherman multitool and have also taken a photo of the Relevant fuse locations  from the handbook and keep them on my iPhone.
A small Ravpower backup battery for iPhone and a paper Collins full Uk map for when technology fails  a keyring size Nitecore torch and spare ear plugs.
Plan 2 is breakdown cover with britannia rescue.
Blimey reading this back to myself makes me realise my wife is correct,
I am a Tart  :062:

Only three items needed in an emergency tool kit :

1.  If it moves when it shouldn't -  GAFFA TAPE it

2.  If it doesn't move when it should - WD40 it

3.  If the above don't apply - AA or RAC membership

Works everytime !

LOL  :028: Long time since I needed a toolkit on a bike  :745:

Funny, do you know my wife?  :oh_no:

Have to say it tickles me when I see broken down cars with the bonnet up on the hard shoulder and said driver peering in…………. The average car engine bay made in the last 10-15 years you can't even see anything  :745: :745: :745:

My 2018 kit is terrible, cheapo stuff and all rusty. I do use the allen key for the chain adjuster as I don't have a bigger one. Honestly there are not that many things I think I could fix anymore at the side of the road on a modern bike. I always carry a tyre repair kit...plug, goo and pump up capsule type, this has got me out of trouble at least once. My current rear has as self fitted repair that had lasted more than 6k miles. Tyre was only 1k when i got the puncture.
