Attached is a list of basic fasteners that I have discovered thus far.
Additons to the list would be welcome.
I replaced some Phillips (JIS) with Metric Allen head.

The factory tool kit is about the same as came with my Yamaha enduros of the seventies.
I despise combination pliers, but they are better than nothing.
Without them, I'd make room for Channellock 426 and/or Irwin 4LN Visegrips.

The supplemental sockets and diagonal cutting pliers (Channellock 435 5" dikes are hard to find) fit into a 5 x 7.5" pouch which fits into a lower front pocket of my adventure jacket or in the taillbag. Under the Bonneville seat is enough room for the socket pouch and a smaller pouch for stubby combo wrenches.

1/4" drive metric hex bits are also difficult to find. These are Armstrong (USA) from McMaster.com (bit pricey)

Nice set-up.
"1/4" drive metric hex bits are also difficult to find" ...but ever so useful when it comes to valve covers and the like.
If that is a 6" wobble extension above the 1/4" rachet then I like the way you think.
The diikes sure would be appreciated by anyone who has ever gotten tangled up in discarded bailing wire or worse.

3,4,5,6 & 8 mm 1/4 drive Armstrong thru McMaster-Carr are about $44.

A set of Eklind or Bondhus L wrenches would be much cheaper, but sure is nice to use a ratchet and sometimes an extension. McMaster metric hex bits.jpg
