    XL700 tool kit

    Hello!

    I'm off to Africa in a few days to ride an XL700 for a while and I don't have one at home, I was wondering if you could recommend the most commonly needed tools and sizes for the bike? I'd love to arrive ready to change a tyre, tighten a chain etc.
    Any help gratefully received!

    Thanks

    I imagine someone can confirm the exact position, but as far as I'm aware, the "chassis" of the 700 is more or less the same as the 650, so the tools you'd need for "Troy" would be a good starting point.

    Thanks for the response, I'll try to replicate Troy's tool kit.

    The reason I want to take a tool kit is that I have limited time and would rather spend it riding than shopping for tools!
