Going through some stuff I have collected over the years and found some tool kits I purchased from a Yamaha dealer that went out of business. No wonder why he is out of business because he swiped the tool kits from new bikes he sold only to sell them later.

I know what I paid for them and am not making a dime on them at the prices listed. Grab them if you want them or go find them cheaper somewhere else. Both are new and never used.



XT225 kit with container and fastening bolts $45 plus actual shipping

TW200 Kit $30 plus actual shipping.

Nice offer Gary.
While not the most surgical quality of tools they are a lot better than nothing and can accomplish a lot of roadside repair and self-rescue. They take up a lot less weight and room than quality replacements since the kit's contents are lightweight and multi-functional.
Someone who sells used TWs here once said he removes these tool kits from every TW he re-sells.
I would recommend double checking one's TW for a complete kit if one does not already pack a tool belt. I like to add an additional fuse and nitrile gloves to my kits.

Yes Fred, I always carried my own tools in the rear box I use on the rack. These kits can suffice in a pinch and even for doing basic oil changes and adjustments. I have no idea if you can buy the kits at most dealers or what they would cost. The out of business dealer was a cheap creep and had the kits from just about every new bike he ever sold. He told my friend the kits don't come in the bikes and charged him $35 extra when he bought his ATV. I told him that was complete BS and just about every new bike comes with an On Board tool kit from the factory.
He had all sorts of NOS OEM parts he was selling when he closed but not much for the TWs or XTs. I bet he still has lots of old parts left in the building that sits dormant today because he was pricing everything way too high.

When it comes to removing the oil drain bolt I actually prefer using the 22mm wrench in these factory kits over a “quality” wrench. I’ve seen other wrenches that are supposed to be better quality, especially sockets, round over the oil drain bolt. The cheapie Yamaha factory tool wrench will grab the oil drain bolt as good as any wrench and won’t strip the bolt.

You are of course correct except if you happen to have a good set of metric 6 point sockets that has the 22 MM size in it. Most socket sets are the 12 point versions and I hate them with a passion for that exact reason, round over any tight nuts. The same goes for any of the screws on our TWs and most Japanese bikes. The screws sure look like regular Phillips heads but they are in fact very different and called either "JIS" for (Japanese Industrial Standard) or the American version is called "Cross Point." Use a Phillips driver on a tight screw and you are sure to round over the slots. Harbor Freight usually carries a perfectly good set of the 6 point or 6 flat sided sockets and worth having for working on any machines.

Update again. The buyer for the TW200 kit went with the kit/manual offered by Placerload so both of mine are still available.

Look at the pictures. I have just one kit for the TW200 and just one kit for the XT225 with the tool storage box. Tell me which kit you want. I will figure out how to do private messages in this new forum and send my address and email info to you.
