    BMW tool kit for Gen2

    Just been looking at what's provided in the kit but where on the bike would you actually use each one?

    Mine includes:
    8 / 10mm open ended spanner
    14mm open ended spanner
    T25 / large Phillips screwdriver with handle
    7.5 & 15 amp mini fuses - info in the manual about replacing those

    From what I've done so far:
    Adjusting the chain needs a 34mm socket/spanner along with 10mm (in tool kit) and 13mm spanners (14mm not a good fit but would just about do in an emergency)
    Removing front wheel is T45 for the axle clamps, needs a 24mm hex key for the axle itself plus 13mm (ideally socket or closed spanner) for the brake calliper bolts (Brembo on mine)
    Battery terminals are 10mm and T25 for the clamp bracket
    Clutch fluid reservoir is T20
    Most bodywork panels, screen, tank etc. are T25
    Larger bolts are T30 like mirror bolts, exhaust to bracket and indicators, front and rear brake discs
    Adjusting the fog lights needs a T30 and 10mm spanner, the main bracket to the frame is T50
    A few main frame bolts are T40
    Handlebar ends are T50
    Rear sprocket is 17mm

    As I've fitted a SWMotech tank ring that needs 3 and 4mm hex too

    Has anyone worked out what the 14mm spanner is for? Was it just a leftover at the factory they chucked in for me or is there a specific use for it?
    Anyone found what the 8mm one is for?
    I'm just looking at what to take touring with me and it seems to include some bits I won't need and miss out a few key things I do want. I'm not going to be stripping the bike down if there's a problem, just basic checks or tightening anything that comes loose

    Aha! So it is, I hadn't even looked under the rubber covers for those. Thank you

    Why they couldn't make it a 13mm I don't know
