I'm off with mates on a week's trip in east Africa on WR250Rs in March. The only problem is the tools. The bikes are over there and the OE tools are with them. Want to take a set of proper tools from here (UK) just in case but can't remember the sizes needed.

I've read the thread athttp://wr250rforum.forumotion.com/t8521-what-tools-for-a-multi-day-solo-ride?highlight=tools but want to only take the appropriate sizes for the WRR rather than a full set of sockets etc

I think it's:
22mm (for rear axle)
19mm (for front axle)
10mm (for front axle pinch bolts)
Spoke key
Allan Key - can't remember the size
Philips screw driver
Flat screw driver
Spark plug spanner

Is that right? Anything wrong?

remind me what fuses are on the bike please!

There's five WRRs and I usually take all the other bits like zip ties, gaffer tape, tyre valves, wire, connectors, puncture repair kit, tyre levers, tyre pump, spare tubes, spare fuel pump, spare levers, wheel bearings, clutch plates, nuts and bolts, cable repair kit to cover most eventualities in the bush. With a long tow rope if all goes a bit wrong (and a sat phone!)

All the best

I think you will want a 12mm to go with that 10mm for chain adjustments.

Spot on. You can get them on the end of your tyre levers to keep weight down, have a tool that does the wheel nut and lever. Motion pro and DRC both make them. Don't forget the Philips head under the tank are a number 3 Phillips head. Number 2 will get them off but can slip and make a fair mess of them.

I changed the philips head screws under the seat that hold the plastic on the tank and the seat bolts to allen head bolts, they are all the same size threads, I can take my gas tank off with one allen wrench now. Very happy

If theres 5 wrrs going I'd take a lot of tools and devide them up on the bikes, its not like your own your own and have to carry everything yourself. We do this on group rides, one guy carrys tire tools another a tube, another the zip ties n stuff etc, this lightens the load for everyone.
