Tool kit?

Does the GT come with a tool kit? When I took the seats off today I noticed a spot for a tool kit, but no kit.

No tool kit, but yours should have a couple of Torx drivers and (I think) a convertible screwdriver. No more tire plug kit either. That space makes a resting spot for the alarm or Autocom unit.

Then again, there's not much you need other than the Torx drivers for the fairing bolts and rear wheel (with a long snipe <not included> for that one!).

Like my dealer said, there's not much you can do yourself to the bike so they omitted things like feeler gauges, plug wrenches, etc. like what came with the R-series bikes.

Consider it maintenance free but maintenance expensive.

No kit needed . . . they NEVER break!

But seriously folks...
A lot of people get upset about this, but I look at it entirely differently. OEM tool kits aren't worth the little plastic bag they put them in. Do yourself a favor and assemble a kit of your own out of quality tools that will actually work if/when you need them to.

Hi GMack,

The rear wheel has a Torx 50, the supplied ones in the kit are T25 and T45: so that will not work, even with a long snipe! I think the T45 is for the height adjustment of the handlebars. The T25 fits the tupperware screws and almost all other (small) screws.

Hope this helps: don't even think you will be able to remove that real wheel with the supplied T45!
