Done. Still open so feel free to add to it. Some photos of your toolkits would be handy. Gotta take some of mine..
I added a half of a stick of Pig Putty. There are a few different manufacturers of this stuff but it does the trick. I wouldn't be afraid to use this stuff to put my handlebars back together if I had to use it to just get home after some major breakage. I like JB weld if you have time for it to set-up but PIG PUTTY is what I keep in the tool kit and besides, they use the same stuff at work that I use for my use too so you can't beat it. If you need to know more specifics on what this stuff is send me a private message and I'll send you what's on the tube.
hmmm....I either have way more confidence in my bike or I am sadly unprepared. A GS 911 is on the way though.
keep it light enough to travel.....

I always carry a Sharpie felt-tip pen and some 3x5 note cards. I wrap a few feet of duct tape around the barrel of the Sharpie. I also carry some "field expedient" baling wire - cut-up pieces of wire coat hangers. My first aid kit has about a dozen pairs of rubber gloves, which can be handy when working on the motorcycle. There's a tiny sewing kit, too, although I doubt the needles are up to the task of taking on a Aerostich or elkskin leather gloves. I've also got a small fire extinguisher.
I can't believe how incredulous I am.
Has anyone used this mini ratchet and if so is it woth the money?
My other bike is a BMW.

I took a roll of duct tape smashed it flat so it takes up less space and I also have a tube of PIG putty. I'm not sure if there are many who know what this stuff is so I'll explain, the company I work for is industrial and we use this stuff to patch holes in steel, pipes for dry products or for that matter anything that is worn of has a hole in it. It is along the lines of JB weld but it as it is a 2-part putty that you work together but it is grindable and is able to be sanded as well. The fact is this stuff would fill in a hole in your crank case fuel tank or most any material if you are able to make the surface dry. This is one of those repair items that you can fix something to just get home or to repair something you just can buy anymore.

Oh yes I have the screw drivers, complete wrench set, ect. ect. but those are more for show than work. I know my limitations.

When reading all of these posts, a question has come up--Is there such a thing as a list of all the fasteners on an 08 RT? For example, when compiling a toolkit, I don't want to carry a 19mm wrench if there's no 19mm nut on the bike. Conversely, I'd like to have a wrench/socket/extension/bit to get to everything I need to.
Any way to know all the tools needed specifically for THIS bike? Short of taking everything apart?
