Fixing a roadside flat gets you nowhere without a means of inflating the tire. The Dynaplug Micro Pro Inflator ($59.99) is compact, weighs just 7 ounces, and is said to inflate a 150/70-17 rear tire from zero to 36 psi in five minutes. Multiple power connectors, an extension cord, pencil pressure gauge, and nylon pouch are all included as part of the kit.
While packing a tow strap is not a new idea, it’s certainly a very good one when riding off road. The Moose Racing Trail Strap ($12.95) is 12 feet long and made of durable 600-denier nylon web with open and looped ends. Expressly intended for motorcycles and ATVs, it folds into a sturdy carrying pouch with provisions for attachment to bike, belt, or other gear.
KTM motorcycles feature unique fasteners that call for specific tools. The CruzTools RoadTech KT1 ($89.95) tool kit covers all on- and off-road KTMs with particular focus on the Adventure and Duke models. The pro-grade tools carry a lifetime guarantee and come organized (with additional roadside items) into a rugged roll-up pouch.
Jack Be Quick
Lube or adjust your drive chain anytime anywhere with the Tirox SnapJack V2 ($49.95) portable motorcycle lift. With SnapJack positioned under the swingarm in one of four height settings, a push on the tool’s pivot levers the wheel off the ground with ease. It folds into 8.5-inch length and includes front brake safety strap, nonslip pads, and a carry bag.
Packing a flashlight is fundamental roadside preparedness. The Wicked Lasers FlashTorch Mini ($199) is made of rugged aircraft-grade aluminum and has a rechargeable battery, three power levels, and a high-efficiency reflector to channel the light into a wide floodlight or searchlight. Coolest of all, its 2,300-lumen maximum output can even be used to ignite a fire.
