Depends on where and when you bought the bike: My "toolkit" consisted of a document bag and a cheap all in one screwdriver.....seems that after the earthquake that stalled production, many 2016s were shipped without complete kit.

You really should just forget about the tool kit from Honda. Regardless of how complete a tool kit you get the tools are garbage, they really aren't worth getting excited about. There are various posts about assembling a useful tool kit depending on your needs. Just google Africa Twin tool roll or something similar. This guy's video is pretty good http://www.jasonwd.com/2016/10/07/video-in-depth-tools/

Why 2 x 14mm spanner in the tool kit?

My quick search around the bike and I could not find a single bolt head that was 14mm. And Honda thought to put 2 of them in the tool kit!

A quick look around and I think you can almost take this whole bike apart with
8,10,12,13,22,27mm spanners. A 19mm is needed to adjust the front forks
5*,6,and 8mm allens for all those bolts
*the 5 is under the seat and opens up the toolkit "cavity"

Old thread, I know, but I just got my AT a week ago. The mirror was loose. To tighten it, I needed two 14mm wrenches. Neither of which was included with my bike, as I'm in the US.

I just picked up my 2021 AT std yesterday. No tool kit. I made the salesmen order me one.
