Tool box suggestion


My toolbox list for everyday maintenance and teardowns.

Only some uses mentioned, and tools that I think most new do it yourselfers overlook.

I think everyone that wants to work on there own bikes should have knowledge of the tools that can benefit them in maintaining there bike.

Vernier Calipers - Uses: Brake rotors wear, rough measurement of Piston O.D. while I'm checking rings, Fork height above clamps, so they are both equal, etc.

Feeler gauges - Uses: Piston to bore clearance, ring to ring groove clearance, valves, etc.

Dial indicator with magnetic base and extensions - Uses: Ensure you are on TDC of stroke for static timing, check run out on rims, check if flywheel is running true, etc.

Bore Mics, inside mics, outside mics - Uses: To be able to tell if it's time for a piston replacement.

Flywheel puller - Self-explanatory

Multimeter - Uses: check for grounds, continuity of coils, etc.

Snap ring pliers - Self-Explanatory

Aviation Wire Pliers, and wire - Uses: Keep things from falling off. Aid in clamping fuel lines, Handle grips, etc.

      My two sons and I are proud owners of new a YZ250X, TTR125 and TTR110 and are anxious to get on them. 
      I'm trying to sort out what tools and repair supplies we should be putting in the car and would appreciate any suggestions on the inventory list itself, or suggestions for any of the specific items on it. 
      What I am pretty sure we need, but will need to buy...
      Spare tubes -- HD? -- for all 6 size rims
      Tire levers. How many? Will any do?
      Tire lever rim protectors? Two? Will any do?
      Spare spark plugs
      What I wonder if we need to get?
      Slime (put it in at the start)? 
      Tools I own and plan to bring
      Metric socket set and open-end wrenches
      Hex wrench
      Various screwdrivers
      Various pliers
      Torque wrench
      Portable compressor
      Tire pressure gauge
      Toolbox for the above
      Soap, bucket, brush
      Headlamp / flashlight
      Tape & zip ties
      Repair stand
      Camp chairs
      Anything that am I missing?

      Selling my LC8 Tool Board with Tools. I paid around $4k for these new and never used them, sold the bike.

      You can pick them up (San Angelo, TX), or I will pack and ship them for you on your dime.

      They include a wheel lift, engine bracket, and an switch jack attachment. The tools not on the board are LC4 tools which I did not buy. 

      Tool Board 60029066000, around $440 new.
      Tools 60029061000, around $3480 new.
