    BACK-UP Parts? What to have Extra? Remote location possible

    So I may be shipping my TW overseas, parts "may be" available, at a very high premium shipped to me... or they could be impossible to get. I could be in a wet/sub-tropical, near ocean area. I know I will have access to Fuel and maybe crankcase oil.

    Can you give me a list of what to take with me, prioritized?

    So far I was considering an extra one of each of the below

    - New Carb, or rebuild kit
    - Lithium Battery
    - 0-ring chain
    - Tire inner Tubes
    - Extra headlight bulb
    - Air Filter
    - oil filter
    - spark plug
    -
    -
    -
    -


    What else should be here? And are there a best brands I should be listing next to these parts?

    Thanks ALL for the input

    About the only other thing that can stop you is the CDI - given that Tom is now doing them at half price, might as well pack one (doesn't take up a lot of room)

    Bulbs and fuses might be good idea while you at it (a single headlight bulb is unlikely to be enough - you get a short - takes out the bulb - still got the short, takes out the replacement - rinse and repeat) ......

    How does an incandescent bulb short out, or be damaged by a short circuit anywhere else?

    Depending on what year ur bike is, I say kick starter. If it dies in the middle of no where u will be glad you have that. Ride-on both tires, bar protectors, maybe a 12v socket to help charge a phone? in emergency. Maybe get a battery jump pack, can also charge phones. Id go x-ring chain if ur gonna change before you go imo. Maybe make a tool kit/pouch and have plug/small tool/ bulbs/ extra chain master link in it? I wouldnt worry about a clutch lever if you have bar protectors imo, ur chance of breaking would be alot... less. Maybe a 12v small air pump or co2 pump. If you dont already have a rear rack defeniatly THAT!

    Elementary my dear Watson - https://www.thespruce.com/light-bulb...es-why-1152457

    In the case of the TW, a short “could” provide up to 14.5V which is testing to say the least for a bulb rated at 12v — vibration or bad manufacture can be another cause — why take the risk for such an inexpensive light weight item ?

    Given the potential for higher moisture content than usual on this trip — any part of the electrical system can “jump”

    I have a (240v) LED lighting system in my kitchen — bulbs are supposed to last for many years — yet one of them has crapped out in less than three months — you simply cannot rely on anything, especially in the middle no-where …..

    Maybe a stock metal screen oil filter, as they can be reused/cleaned. While the paper 1's are throw away.

    Don't understand Purple, on our TWs just what is potentially shorting out to cause this theoretical voltage surge to the headlight bulb? I would like to understand so as to mitigate the risk if possible.
