What I'm trying to say is that the "toolbox" is pretty much useless as far as carrying useful tools.
Here is a reference pic for what I found in my toolbox. I have most of what is in the kit in my big toolbox in the garage. For me, the screwdriver to access the toolbox is a non-issue since I always carry a pocketknife.

I agree with the previous posts, a good metric socket set is a great start, (works for Toyotas too!)

I've got a pretty good start on tools. Basic, but a start. Thank you.
What is that quarter moon looking tool next to the pliers and what is it used for?

That's a spanner wrench to adjust the rear shock preload. Adjusting your rear shocks will change how much the rear shocks compress when you sit on the bike.

Thank you 7700. Sounds like I could use one eventually.

I can't thank you all enough for sharing your wealth of information! My class is in a week and a half and I have learned so much here that I am less intimidated. Clutch threshold, how to properly turn on my rebel to shutting it down properly and so much more. Getting to know my rebel and its parts is very empowering. I've pulled it in and out of the shed so many times I am comfortable with its size and weight.
You've answered all my questions generously and factually. Thanks.. Now all I have to do is pass the class 🙂

Lisa, you sound like you already enjoy simply sitting on the Rebel, and rolling it around the yard. With that mindset, the course is going to be a hoot! Just wait for that first time that the bike moves you instead of the other way around... you're going to love it!
