You certainly wouldn't want the Honda tool kit. It's crap!If there is any dealers or anything that watch this thread and or anyone knows where I can order a tool kit that didn't come with my bike, please send me a link, I am here in the US and would love to order one for my Bike, thanks in advance.
Well I'm off to ride the #TransAmericaTrail tomorrow.What are you expecting to happen to your bike that would require a full toolkit on-board? Off-road, maybe but given likely 90% road use for this machine I cant see why you would ever need it. My toolkit is a breakdown phone number saved as a contact in my phone! My last Honda was a CB350K4 (a long time ago I know), never opened the toolkit, ultra reliable, did many thousands of miles, dont tell me modern Hondas are less reliable? Apart from an occasional chain tension adjustment what else would you be doing with your bike? Tools are for you garage at home, why lug piles of them around with you on the bike?

Oh alright then, take a bottle of that tyre repair aerosol gunk as well, oh no, tubed tyres, take the full toolkit then! Very jealous you are doing that route, looks great, so spoilt for choice in the USA>Well I'm off to ride the #TransAmericaTrail tomorrow.
Does that count
The bikes are shipped to the dealer with nothing in the tool kit the owners manual and the tool kit are strapped to the crate that the bike came in in a separate cardboard box. It looks like the US bikes may not be ordered with the tool kit or the guy that assembles the bike throws them out not understanding there is a small plastic bag inside the box with these items inside it.I remembered someone talking about their included tool kit so tonight while I was checking pillion clearance with the stock panniers I decided to look at my tool kit. First off I thought the bolts heads were going to strip out before they came loose. They were seriously tight!
I think that may have been on purpose because once I got it open it was empty. NOTHING in it.
When you get a chance take a look in yours and let us know what you find. I can understand how it happens and I would much rather have the bike without the toolkit than have waited any longer.
I got mine May 23, silver DCT, but because of all the rain and a few out of town trips I only have about 250 miles on it. Tomorrow should be fair weather so I plan on putting on some miles. I will post what I have learned and give my humble observations on the AT. Still have not picked a name for her yet but maybe tomorrow.....??
