Depends on what you are comfortable doing.

Screwdrivers, slotted and Philips
Allen Keys
2 Crescent (adjustable) Wrenches
Knife
Electrical Tape
Tire patch kit
Flashlight
Tire Pressure Gauge
spare headlight bulb

I have one of these in my bag too, not sure how useful it might be but you never know

The things that may or may not be true are the things a man needs to believe in the most. People are good; honor, courage, virtue mean everything; power and money mean nothing; good always triumphs over evil; true love never dies. A man should believe in those things, because they are worth believing in.

It's mosquito repellant. Cause the second you turn on that flashlight, especially where I live, you get swarmed by mosquitos.

ifs, some guys karry more tools on the road than they use at home. If you do much of yor own wrenching, you don't ask these kind of questions cuz you already kno wat you need and should have nuff faith in yor self an sled to handle any mos issues. Not knowing yor skoot leads to not trusting it.
