Could be that no one genuinely knows.

Not knowing what comes in any of the choices I can only guess at the Fazer as it is the closest to the thundercat, having the same engine, swing arm anawl.

Have you thought of making up your own small tool set ? Some generic use on all bikes type of kit.
8mm, 10mm, 13mm, 18 and 23mm combi open and ring spanners. A small set of plyers, some allen keys, x-head & flat screw driver and a C-spanner for the rear shock.
Put them all in a small travel toiletry bag and hey presto. Good to go.

johnakay...I have noticed that it can be a little like that but its to be expected when most of the peeps on here live somewhat close to each other.

I have one on my bike that I have been wondering if I should sell to you. I have never really used it and it just takes up space under my seat. To be totally honest I think that I would rather have a medkit and a really good torch under there since I have motorcycle breakdown and lets be realistic, if your bike breaks down on the side of the road you have obviously not been paying attention or its something that was unforeseen and possibly unfixable with the toolkit under the seat anyways...lol.

Ill have a think and let you know.

In any case the toolkit under the seat is pretty low quality anyways and it has very often not had anything that ive really used. I do much of my work on the bike at home or at a mate's garage where we have all the tools we need to hand.

1st Option) Build your own kit, here is a nice start:

8mm, 10mm, 12mm, 14mm open end wrenches (spanner = fail but useful)
8" adjustable wrench (much loved)
1/4" ratchet with
ratchet extension (UBER WIN)
8mm, 10mm, 12mm sockets (win)
4mm, 5mm, 6mm hex keys (win)
6-1 screwdriver (win)
5/8"(16mm) Spark plug socket (useful though will probably never get used)
Spark plug gap gauge
Locking pliers (useful)
Led flashlite (useful)
Electrical tape (useful)
Plastic ties, 3 different sizes (uber useful)
10-50psi tire gauge (useful, I carry one in a tankbag though)

The above option means that you get to make a kit which suits you. You decide on the bits and you end up not carrying around crap you may never use. Depends how often you look at your bike and think...'oooo ill change that just for the sake of it'.

2nd Option) You can have mine for 20 squid including postage. Ill even throw in a few nylon ties. Very Happy

This option is nice and cheap....but the tools are crap, open ended spanners that round off most of your fixings, silly little allen keys that hurt your hand, etc. Your choice bud.

Some nice replies there peeps . . . . even if it did take a wee guilt trip (clique) boot up the airs Embarassed

Really jaykay we aint cliquey . . . . we're just shy and retiring . . . (cough cough) Embarassed Wink Smile

And naaah reciprocity . . . has nothing to do with proximity of our addresses. If you check out the regulars locations they're quite well spread. . . . more to do with time in/on forum and prolific posting . . . all of which you can neither buy or pass on.

I have just got a tool kit for my cat and I am going to keep that under the seat for emergency's and add a few bits. But I am using all my normal tools to destroy my cat in my garage ;0) This forum is not a busy one but I have found it a very friendly one.
