What Tools/ Parts Would You Take For Trailriding?

Recommended Posts

So this is my first post, I'll state my question first, then I'll give a little back story for the guys that might want to read. I just got a '10 KX250F that I plan on using for trail riding, with that said what extra junk would you haul with you for those woods repairs? I am just getting back into riding after taking a 6-7 year break, my last bike was a '97 XR400 and I just can't get over how much things have changed in the 4 stroke bikes. Back when I was riding all the time I always carried a spare plug, master link or 2, a handfull of nuts and bolts, gearshift, and a decent amount of tools to make a decent trailside repair. The reason I packed so much crap was where I ride, you cannot get a support vehicle in the woods so I was a nut about keeping enough crap with me just in case. I never really needed to make many repairs, and it was normally me fixing somebody elses' junk, but I am on the camp of 'have it and not need it rather than need it and not have it'. This is the first Kawasaki I have ever owned, I have always been in the Honda camp, plus I have always rode 4 stroke bikes, never been much for smokers lol. What are some of the things I need to watch out for on my new to me ride? The previous owner wasn't much help but I can see evidence the top end has been apart, most likely for valve shimming but possibly piston. Anyway, thanks in advance! I'm looking forward to getting back in the woods, I never realized I missed it as much as I do!!
