Check these guys out, their complete kits have everything you'll ever need, or you can buy their pouches alone that hold an amazing amount of stuff and fit comfortably in the bottom of your bags.

I bought their pouches then made up my own tool kit from spares in my shop, and pretty much followed their list or close to it.
I did throw in a 35mm film canister full of dielectric grease, which was the only tool i used on our SWIII trip.

In the storage pouches tdkkart mentions. I have a complete set of 3/4 and down of open end and box wrenches,short sockets,deep sockets, torqs sockets, allen sockets, along with 3/8 rachet and few extension lengths. Allen keys, torqs keys, assorted pliers, zip ties, elec tape,lock tight, set of plugs. I think that is about it.

I can attest to the pouches holding a lot of tools. Frankie's set saved my bacon at SWIII. I changed handlebar risers in the hotel parking lot, with them.

Pretty much what's on Frankie's list covers it. I also picked up a Stop-n-Go tire plugger kit, threw away it's bag and loaded it all into one of the pouches, along with some extra CO2 cartridges. Cheap 4-pack of pliers,channel locks, side-cutter,needle nose etc. Electrical test lamp and some wire.
And, if you don't have one of these you're missing out:

I use mine every time I work on the bike I think.

Use common sense, if you're not capable of fixing anything yourself there's not much point in packing tools, or tools that you'll never use. Some insist on packing a wrench/socket to remove the rear axle, but really, are you gonna pull the rear wheel on the side of the road?? Doubtful. I could fill both saddlebags full of tools, but what's the point??

I just keep whatever tools I think I might need for longer road trips in a pringles can. May seem dumb, but its cheap and fits in the saddlebag. I've got a thread on it. Keep a set of wrenches, ratchet with allen and torx sockets some other small stuff.

Thanks for this and for once the search option was fruitful. Just ordered my In The Bag set. Going to build my own tool kit to go in it.

Thanks!
