Just Curious, has anyone pulled the ignition key cover off to see wether the basic tool kit is worth anything to have handy? I know those little black pop plastic rivets break easy that hold the cover on,,was just curious as to who has popped the cover off and checked out what was there and used anything,,thanks:D

We Have tool kits?!?!?!?! Its a multi tip screw driver and an allen key. not worth risking breaking one of the plastic clips to check out or use, cant do much with them from what i could think and they are OEM tools which means they suck for quality. If it was between life and death and i couldnt phone a friend to bring tools out and didnt have any on me I would possibly try using them Only good thing is once you get past the poor excuse for a tool kit you can take the cover off and get to the radiator filler.

You havent missed out on much. I have had 4 bikes and all of them had tool kits, never used one except for the kawasaki sparkplug wrench/screwdriver combo because while i was trailriding i dumped my bike and flooded the engine with water so had to pull the plug to get it out. They are usually junk that you are afraid you will break if you touch them and want to keep it intact just incase you might be unfortunate enough to have to use it

I just had to take the cover off to have a look as I can't leave anything alone. Yep it's a #2 phillips and a 5mm hex key. Very under whelming.

gotcha,,appreciate the knowledge on that,,I had a metric 1/4 inch socket set I kept in my saddle bags with my allen wrenches on all my bikes,,just looking at alternatives,,,if my Bud Dan gets this bag Im looking at making to go between the cylinder dead space and fuel tank,,maybe I can carry it. This is my 1st bike that has no carry space,,im not much of a back packer

Now thats minimalist. On my shadow since i had saddlebags i carried a decent collection of sockets and wrenches, a couple screw drivers, and an allen key set. Never had to use it on my bike but did for my friends cars. You could carry that in a tripple tree bag, or have a back pack for your longer trips that a breakdown would really suck on

i got the standard triple-tree bag--4"x12" (approx). it holds my sunpass, garagedoor opener, a crescent wrench and some hex's. Oh, and a small shami. gotta wipe those seats after a nice Florida rain shower!
Next, I got a Tourmaster sissybar bag to hold small shopping items. Otherwise, I'd always be in the truck. Now, there's no reason I can't take the bike on small shopping trips to the 'Depot.

Have been on the Fury Forum for a little while, but this is my first posting. I have had my Fury since November, and love it. Am in Indiana so can't wait for the riding season. Very comfortable for me at stock, but will get around to the mods eventually.
First dumb move though, I broke one of the Plastic Rivets taking the rear fender off to put on the sissy bar. I'm sure these are only available at the dealer, right?

they have some plastic rivits at parts stores for the HELP section with window cranks and such. they arnt too uncommon for holding plastic splash guards up on underside of cars and some interior components occasionally

You know i bought a Honda so i would not need any tools..:cool: unlike a big dog, Harley ect. :eek:..
i could keep up with that statement, its so you can help other people out.....but some tools are wise to have, license plate could vibrate loose, battery could die and need to change it at work, same with starter relay, and a few other simple parts.
