The 89 that I bought has no toolkit.
I am attempting to put together one and would like to know what was actually in the stock one.

Can someone please describe the contents for (me to include information such as deep well for sockets, etc)?

Oh yeah, what about tools that should be in the kit?



Thanks in advance!

My 1999 Gold Wing SE Tool Kit has the following:

1. Open end wrench 14 mm and 17 mm.

2. Open end wrench 10 mm and 12 mm.

3. Open end wrench 7 mm and 8 mm.

4. Box wrench 14 mm and 17 mm.

5. Box wrench 10 mm and 12 mm.

6. Pair of pliers.

7. one 22 mm "6-point" box wrench.

8. One 27 mm "6-point" box wrench.

9. One screwdriver handle with phillips and straight point
driver.

10. Spark plug wrench.

11. 4 allen wrenches (8 mm, 6 mm, 5 mm and 4 mm).

12. 2 feeler gauges (0.7 and 0.8).

The 1989 tool kit should be quite similar.

It would be well worth it to get one off eBay if you can, the box they come in fits the recess in the saddlebag which is nice. Also they have the large box ends with a slip on handle extender which is needed to remove the rear wheel if you need to on the road. A standard 27mm wrench would be pretty large and heavy in the saddlebag.

If saddlebag space is a concern, a "cloth or fabric" type wrap (for tools) takes about half (or less) as much space as the stock plastic tool box. I have known several folks who got rid of the "large plastic box" and went with the wrap type bag for tools. There is a lot of wasted space with the plastic tool box. It measures 10 x 8 x 3, a lot of space for just a few tools. Heck, 1/3 of that box size is just the "carrying handle" on the box, talk about wasted space..........!

Probably less than 1 % of GL1500's ever have the rear wheel removed along side the road. But if you fall in the 1 % group, then the 27 mm tool might be a concern. But not really, a 27 mm wrench would not take up all the wasted space of the OEM tool box.

Just my thoughts, others may differ.

Here is the kit I carry. It is the accumulation of all the pieces I use as I go actually doing work on the bike.
It is heavier but about the same size as the much less useful stock tool kit, although I do have a few parts from the original kit in my kit as well.

Just as a side note, Bikebandit.com has a break down of the tool kits in the online fiche. I put together one for my 1200 from the parts fiche. Used a shaving kit bag for my tool bag :)

Yes, they should probably fit most of the bolts and nuts on your GL1100.

I carry a few other tools etc., but the list above was just in response to the question asked by the poster.

Ya know, things like jumper cables, tire repair kit, small tire pump, extra fuses and relays, syphon hose, multi-meter, flash light, shop cloths, tire and tread depth gauges (and use them), tools to fit my trailer hitch "draw bar", "spare tire mount" and "lug nuts" (when pulling the trailer) and a few other odds and ends.

If you wear glasses, an extra pair for backup might be a good idea, such things are subject to getting broke or whatever at times.

Oh, it's important to carry a "first aid kit" as well and replenish the contents once a year, especially the time sensitive items.

I have never needed to use the first aid kit myself but did use it to help a downed rider in Montana a couple of years ago.

He was trying to cross the median (on gravel) on I-94 and lost control as soon as he hit the gravel. His left foot was pinned under the saddlebag safety guard and he could not get up. Fortunately, I was a short distance behind him and saw him go down. I lifted the bike, freed his foot and his ankle was ok. He had several abrasions on his arms that need attention. He was only wearing a short sleeve t-shirt at the time. He was quite shook up from the incident so we sat and talked for a few minutes. Then I rode his bike across the gravel to the hard pavement and he was on his way.

The first aid kit earned it's money that day.....!
