I'm looking at different seats and read that the Sargent seat has room for the Triumph tool kit that comes with the bike whereas the Corbin doesn't. On the stock seat should the toolkit fit in the space between the battery and the end of the bike or is it under the battery? I only ask cos that space is where I keep my wallet and cell phone and I fear that I may have been sold a bike without the toolkit.


Stoopidest noob question ever? Quite possibly, but I did check the Uber thread first :afro:

On the stock seat the tool kit is attached on the seat with a rubber strap. There's a cavity on the seat for the tool kit.

nope, nut'n beats the 'which oil should I use' question. :violent1: :twofinger: Premie is right about the tool kit though. If yer bike came with it, it should be attatched to the seat.

Thanks fellas. I just checked and it's where it's supposed to be.

I've also just realized that I haven't tightened my chain in 3,500 miles. :shocker:

Now you will realize that they don't even give you enough tools to do that simple job. I really need to assemble a decent kit, the OE one is so pathetic. :slap:

Make you own.

My kit currently consists of the following:
A small tool roll or pouch with a couple of wrenches (preferably ratcheting) - 8mm, 10mm, 12mm, 13mm, and a plug wrench/socket.

A ratcheting screwdriver with interchangeable bits - Standard, Phillips, Allen, and nut driver heads (can replace above if Crescent is added).

A bit of wire, a couple of alligator clips, flattened small rolls of electrical and duct tapes, Chain tightening tool, fuses, razor blade or knife,flashlight, tire plug kit and inflater (for longer trips).

My favorite new addition - a small heavy bag/bladder that holds 1/2 gallon of fuel - and seals well.

I didn't get a tool kit ??? I asked the dealer about the chain adjusting wrench and they said it didn't come with the bike. New 06.

If the Triumph chain tightening tool is no good can you recommend a decent after market one?

After my last hospital stay, I had to wear a bladder for a month. Its VERY important that they don't leak. ;D

Its bad enough carrying a bag on your hip - I don't know about carrying a flammable one.

You ONLY fill the bladder in emergencies - like IF and WHEN you run out of fuel. It doesn't fit under the seat when it's full.
