Tool Box

What are your thoughts on the AT tool box? I think its a good idea but wondered what tools you get and is there any room in there for other stuff/tools. Is it easy to access?

This afternoon I explored the 'toolbox', in a word it's crap. You can get all the tools into it and close it, but the rattle is annoying. Also I wonder too how long it will be before the tool set coalesces into a rusty lump as there is no apparent seal and the box is in an exposed position. The access as previously mentioned is not good, 2 dark-coloured allen bolts hidden above some gaps & traps, drop the bolts and you may have fun finding them. I'm beginning to understand why my KTMs cost more than the AT.

Hi Drum Dog,

Thanks for the suggestion, but I fear the box is not waterproof, and a rag will probably act as a sponge and keep the tools wet longer, at least that's my read of it.

If it really is that much of a pain to get off, might it not be a good location to put things like spare keys and a credit card and things like that on a long trip in a small dry bag? Not sure the average thief would even know to look in a 'secret compartment' like that.
Agreed, just put them below the seat, the tools fit there too.
