If you have a tire with an uncommon tube size, like the 4.00-6, take one with you. Bring a 6.00-6 if it's the weekend. Just the tubes. If you ruin a tire, that's on you.

Bring a simple little pump too with a gauge. A compact, non motorized small throw pump. Yeah, you'll spend a while pumping up the tire, but this is for emergencies, not a daily driver.

A couple of crescent wrenches so you don't have to bring a ton of different sized wrenches.

Allen key wrenches, only the sizes appropriate for your wheels.

A 4 in 1 screwdriver.

A bottle of oil and a way to pour it in cleanly.

A small emergency medical kit.


That's basically all you need. Flat tires are common enough that you would want to prepare for them, especially with 4.00-6 tubes because that's a super odd size. This will get you home where you can PROPERLY torque everything.

I'd also recommend 2.5 oz of Woodford Reserve.  Sometimes, its best to spend the night and tackle the problem in the morning.   Seriously, the above mentions of tube and tools is good.  Remember the wheel pants take 2 different size allen wrenches and you will need to get them off to properly change a tire (or have someone do it).  Under the "blown tires" thread is also a good recommendation for a socket to put into the axle opening so you can even find a jack to raise a blown main.  Otherwise, a gym membership may be needed to lift the wing just outward of the tie down ring.
