Default Trail tool kit

Hi Guys,
I've been riding for years, but just recently thought about which tools I should be carrying with me on the trail. Sometimes (as in out west, mountains) it really comes in handy. I was just wondering what you guys thought. Here's my list, carried in the stock gg pouch rolled up and stuck in my camelback-
1/4", 6,8,10,12,13,14mm sockets saftey wired together
#1, 2, and 3 phillips bits (for 1/4" socket)
tee handle 1/4 inch drive
gg triangle wrench (8-10-12mm)
metric allen wrench set (foldable)
4,5,6mm loose allen
small needle nose pliers with wire cutter
small wire cutter
6", 8", 12" zip ties
roll of electrical tape
small and med std screw driver
snap ring pliers
GG open end wrenches 8, 10, 12, 13
Front brake lever
Shift lever, bolt, snap ring
small roll of saftey wire
extra plug
GG plug wrench
small piece of 150g sandpaper
$20 cash
small hand pump

I'm looking for a way to carry some 2 stroke oil (for roadside or emergency fueling. Anybody have any ideas to carry maybe a couple separate-one gallon worth oil?

Any other ideas?

Thanks as always,
Tim

A baby bottle for your oil, they are small and marked in ounces.

+1 This is what I use. Its a deadly boys one with a blue cap and pictures of cars on it!! I usually throw 200ml in it (enough for 10L at 50:1 - a tank worth), but it will hold closer to 300ml if filled.

I also carry similar tool set to you. Assorted tapes, wires, spanners, sockets, breaker bars, allen keys, pliers, spare plug, 21" tube and 3 tyre irons. My tool bum bag is a kelly enduro one. Built tough as nails. I really need to give it a cull. I have enough tools to just about do a top end on the trails. It weighs a bit!

Good thinking. Any noticed effects in the plastic from the oil? Or just fill it up each ride?

Thanks!

Mines never been washed out so always has some residue in it. I try to ride more often then not so I try to keep oil in it. LOL

No ill effects to my bottle. I guess they are constructed to be microwave safe, withstand boiling water, hold milk and all that.. Gotta be a better construction than a juice bottle!

Holy cow, Jak! That tool kit must weigh 15 pounds! I try to minimize the tools in my fanny pack. I have got a T-handle with 8,10,and 12mm sockets on it (made by MotionPro), a small pair of needle nose vice grips, combo wrenches (8mm/10, 12mm/14), 4,5,6mm allens. Spark plug,wrench and master link. Thats it. I very seldom have to dip in to the tool kit on the trail....usually for someone else who needs a tool.

As far as tire irons and tube....if I have a flat, I will ride back to the truck and load it up and go home. Around here, the fartherest we are from the trucks is about 15 to 20 miles and I will ride that far on a flat....then I will take the wheel off at home and take it to the shop and let them fix it. I have had my share of fixin' flats and changing tires and in my old age, I pay to have it done now.

Its well heavy and I'd love to be able to cull it down some but we usually go 70-100km between fuel stops and a decent round trip including a bit of time on black stuff. Its easier to change a flat than it is to limp home in my case

You are right in saying that most efforts into the tool kit are for others though!

You're riding a GG now. Your list doesn't have to be nearly as long, as the Orange guy's list.

Pack a small amount of resourcefulnes and a bit of determination I managed to undrown a bike once with a pair of longnose pliers and a flat screwdriver ... and the thought of a 20km walk home at the back of my mind to a worried wife also helped formulate the solution

Please not I am by no means saying that those are the only tools you need, my bumbag is a lot heavier since that day!!
