I have a 2008 sp500 ho putting some tools togather to carry with me, are more std or metric nots and bolt sizes?
Mine is mostly standard. But I do have a couple of metric wrenches for things like the battery terminals (10mm), and certain engine parts that might need snugging.I have a 2008 sp500 ho putting some tools togather to carry with me, are more std or metric nots and bolt sizes?
I am the same, can't fix too much, but want to survive.I am by no means capable of fixing a motor/transmission or any other serious problem in the woods...Thank got for friends...So I don't carry much in regards to tools my thing is comfort and survival more then mechanics..
echo folding saw
10' tow strap
fishing tackle/fishing rod
extra lens for goggles/anti fog
slime tire repair kit
magnesium fire starter
first aid kit
$50 bill always stashed on my bike
beef/deer/bear/goose jerky what ever is in season
There maybe more but my bike is up north at the farm so I can't double check. This is the list for when I go to moose camp or to the boonies.90% of the time I ride on private property and and in populated areas so carrying survival gear and tools is really not necessary.
But I do keep tools at the truck
extra spark plugs
extra plastic rivets
small pry bar
small tube of die-electric grease
grease gun with amsoil grease
extra air filter
soon to be extra belt and tools required for my buddy to change it..lol
extra axle bolts and lug nuts
a piece of pipe for added leverage when removing/installing lugs nuts
extra head and tail bulbs
I'm sure there's more but moose hunting is not for another 4/5 months so I'll worry about it then.
Oh, ok. Where did you buy it?? We have an outdoor shop up in Barrie. Don't want any of that novelty stuff, that is for sure.absolutely Will that's what I meant by the mag fire starter....its a magnesium stick and on one edge it has a flint strike...I never go in the woods with out that and my buck knife.
Thanks. Looks exactly like what Les Stroud has used, simple and effective.I like this one because its cheap,widely available and works great..you can buy expensive ones with handles or bear grils has a line of crap out...this is a tried true basic product that does exactly what its suppose to. start a fire in any condition...here is a link.but you can buy it can-tire,wall mart army surplus etc...

I also make my own fire blocks
1/2 wood chips
1/2 saw dust
melt that all up in a pot and pour 1" into the muffin paper let cool scrape some mag on there and through a spark that way and theirs your fire!
