Good list, not gonna go into what I carry (a lot of which is what you do) but a few more important item(s) would also be a couple (or a few) 3' webbing loops and a few carabiners for towing or to pull a buddy's bike up to the trail if it went over the  edge. Also a few different sized master links, decent chain breaker, and chain compressor for getting the master link in place. A plastic medicine bottle filled with nuts n bolts of various sizes. Allen and Torx wrench sets (the folding ones have most sizes, but at least 4, 5 and 8mm aliens). A small folding saw (Corona razor saw is worth the $$). If you're gonna carry CO2 compressed "air" make sure your set up is for Schrader valves (what dirt bike tubes have) NOT Presta (what most bicycle tubes have). Very important. Carry one 21 inch tube if possible, will work on a rear 18 inch wheel. I also have a GPS device in case I need to give my coordinates to a helo in a worst case scenario.

      Does anybody use them, and how well are you able to get them clean, what would you use to clean them, my concern would be the cleaning issue, how would you know you got every bit of debris out of it, thanks

      Open up the tool kit on my new bike and found only two allen wrenches in the kit. Is that standard?

      The purpose of this thread is to give a place for CRF250L enthusiasts to hang out and get help when in the shop.
      It's for when the bike is under the knife... You're stuck with a quick question, have a good tip to share and more...
      If you want to ask something quick or simple, take a break for a cold one or a smoke, this is the place hang out at or post in.
      Are you beat and need a break? Stuck and need a quick answer or info? Just want to hang out in the shop? Well you're here..
      Come on in, pull up a milk crate and grab a cold one outta the old sticker fridge to pass the time.
      Post up your questions and respond to others when possible. Have group discussion about what works and what doesn't or whatever.
      Add links to other threads if you know they have the answer.... We are all in this together, so let's keep this in mind please...
      .

      This is a family friendly PG-13 site and thread so please try to keep this in mind....
      It's kinda meant to be like "The Recovery Room" without the mental patients posts going off on twisted tangents....
      There's even coffee....
