The handlebar adjustment torx wrench on my bike was so far out of tolerance it would hardly fit the bolts. It was like the worst and cheapest Asian made tools you can buy. I just managed to coax it into loosening the bolts but I bought my own to include in the tool kit and this makes it a lot easier.
There is no need for any other tools because there is basically nothing you can do on the side of the road to fix anything. You just need the BMW Roadside Assistance phone number!!. So far in nearly two years (including the previous owner's 5 months) and 30,000km of riding I have never had to use it and not had any problem that actually stops the bike. The EWS failure would be about the only common thing that could leave you stranded and yours should have that fixed already, one would hope.
