Do you think Honda should include a full tool kit on all new bikes such as they did in the 2005 and earlier models?
Yes 85%  85%  [ 293 ]
No 2%  2%  [ 7 ]
The tools were crap, make your own tool kit 13%  13%  [ 43 ]

It is sad that Honda skimped on the tool kit. I say add the cost in. No one will even know. I'll prolly just build my own small kit using some cheap walmart tools. They are about the same as Hona ones anyway.

I have a 2002 that I just purchased, unfortunately, all the tools were allowed to rust. I am waiting for the manual to arrive (I did check but it had been removed). Where were the 2002 tools stored on the bike?

Inside the compartment that you need a key to access I would suppose. I'll be putting her toolkit in one of the hard saddlebags tho so they don't get wet.
You should be able to wire wheel and WD 40 your tools to make them usable.

You don't need a key to access the toolkit box, a flathead screwdriver works just fine.

For the heck of it I looked up how much this kit costs. It's only 34 bucks plus shipping. I may just pick it up and say the heck with waiting to get anything free from Honda.

where the heck do you stash the kit on the older bikes, under the seat or something?

There is a spot for it in one the side covers I thought? Hopefully someone with a grand daddy Rebel will chime in?

Same place as on the new ones.

Look under the side cover, down low and behind. You're looking for a triangular black plastic lid.

That comes off, and there's a triangular black plastic storage compartment into which the tool kit almost fits.

ALmost.

It fits great from the factory. Then you take it out, look in it, marvel at the things that are packed inside, playing with the shock adjustment tool...

Then you try to put it back...

and you spend the next twenty minutes trying to decide which item you're going to leave out so you can get it back in there ;)

I asked my wife about her old kit from the police Rebel she used to ride. She said that you had to hide certain pieces inside the sparkplug socket so it would all fit in the bag and go back into the storage spot.

Yep--

the screwdriver shafts and-- if you were lucky-- one leg of the pliers. If you didn't, it just wouldn't go back in there ;)

I'm supposed to pick up my 2005 from the original owners this afternoon. Guess I need to make sure the toolkit is still there.

and look up your bike in the parts section labled tools. You get the whole bag and tools as a set. The 450 set is $41.78 cause it has more in it. I looked up the 250 set.

At least we got the bag. I used it cause the bag of tools I got from ebay had a rip.
