I carry a plug wrench, 2-4 spare plugs, ratchet with 1/2 inch and 14mm sockets, wrenches to match, spare belt, a starting rope, and a 20 oz. bottle of oil just in case I end up out in the middle of nowhere and run out.

*edit* - I forgot about the mini-mag I carry as well.

I carry various sizes of sockets, wrenches, adjustable wrench, locking pliers, adustable pliers, starting rope, plug wrench, spare belt, bailing wire, quart of oil, and a few other odds and ends. And you can't forget a cell phone. I've had to use it a few times and it sure comes in handy.

On my Widetrak anything I want!!!! [:D][:D]

Come-a-long, flashlight, plugs, belt, wrenches, Propane Torch, Handgun (Never without it!), oil, rope, emergency start strap.

If it's anything other than the widetrak....Just the basics[^].

Hm...can't say I have ran into that problem yet. [:p]

Your guys' back compartments must be pretty full with that roll of toilet paper in there.

I carry a spare belt, spare plugs and the tool kit the sled came with. Thats a couple screwdrivers, plug wrench, shoelace for taking off exhaust springs, belt adjuster/changer.

Those flexible rod magnets i find useless. They stick to everything. I use a 24" flexible and retractable claw tool. Saved me countless hours.

Flashlight! well ok i carry a lot more but that seem to me to be the most important. pitch black middle of nowhere and trying to change a belt when the old one is wound up and you have to cut it off. BTDT, never again. I will always have a flashlight. cheap butane lighter, plugs and wrench of course, shock spanner, 9/16 wrench's 1/2 wrenches, some TP, quart of oil, i have very tiny super strong Kevlar towrope you can ball it up in a fist and its 10 ft long and will pull a sled! oh yeah a coil of fuel line(siphon hose) and a first aid kit. yeah that fills the trunk and most of the windshield bag.

Riding a Cat I always, keep a Yamaha, Doo, Or Polaris around for a spare. LOL. JK

Small things like WD-40, plugs, wrenchs, rags, extra light bulb wrapped in a sock, for your head light if you only have a single unit. (not fun in the dark with no light) Tow stap.
