Stock Tool Kit?

So this is the stock tool kit??:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/95-Kawasaki-...1959dc&vxp=mtr

2 wrenches and 2 screw drivers? My bike didn't come with the tools, I'm wondering what the other stuff in there is...

One piece is the rubberband that holds the pouch inside the back of the tool box. I do not know what actually comes in a stock tool kit, it would be nice to know! A member just recently posted that he had one, "not broken", I can only guess that it was still in the factory wrapper? PM sent and guess he fell off the earth cause never heard anything else---

04-3,200 miles bought July 2011 with 928 miles. Loaded with acessories to many to list here, see my albums for more details! I also make a custom tank bib specific for the 750 if anyone is interested, ck my albums for some pics.

That shipping is a crock of s_it, $3.33 would be more reasonable, not $13.33

The stock kit also came with a spark plug wrench. Only real useful item.


Check out Cruz Tools. They sell a metric "stock like" tool kit that's a much better quality. Called the "Speed kit"

The spark plug wrench is in the picture.

I've got the stock kit still. I use the spark plug wrench all of the time. The screw driver is a pain to use, but I actually used it today. I just keep a screw driver that has the bits stored in the twist-off handle cap, a set of cheap metric wrenches 8-15 mm and a 3.99 harbor freight special socket set on the bike. I spent a whopping $9 for all of the tools and they take up next to no room, the socket set being the only thing that doesn't fit in the tool box.
