    What bag ? haha



  2. Worldly Rider on August 3, 2019 at 1:56 am

    Those bags are garbage. Kreiga makes the best bags. Had the same kreiga r25 bag for years. It’s been used for Hundreds if not thousand of hard off-road hours and thousands of cans of beer. Only problem is a slight tear on the bottom from sliding on ashphalt.

    Even though my bike is jetted properly I keep a spark plug with me.I also just bought a tusk tow strap.My sons bike broke down not that far from the truck but when your pushing a bike it’s far!



  4. Sean McKay on August 3, 2019 at 1:59 am

    2 things I always take with on races/out on the trails are a spare spark plug and a plug spanner, plug spanners are also useful if you drop your bike during a river crossing and you need to take your plug out and get all the water out by flipping it upside down, 2 very convenient things you can fit in your tool bag.



  5. MusicBox on August 3, 2019 at 1:59 am

    Wire is always superior to zip ties. Tow strap. Emergency Mylar blanket. Rain fly… oh and vice grips.



  6. Marcus Führenstahl on August 3, 2019 at 1:59 am

    Why do you Not Use Mousse ?



  7. Neil Cowan on August 3, 2019 at 2:00 am

    Great thing to add that can save a life is a true tourniquet. Not a belt, can be the difference between life and death. Thanks for sharing though love your videos!



  8. MasterBeta343 on August 3, 2019 at 2:00 am

    Im pretty minimal in what i carry i have 2 sparkplugs a folding saw a gerber multitool the motion pro tool kit some wrenches and the stock beta wrench then i also have some duct tape a strap and some paracord and some TP just in case



  9. hello jaja on August 3, 2019 at 2:03 am

    Whats in my bag? Nothing important, just Balls.



  10. MASON WINKLER on August 3, 2019 at 2:04 am

    Pretty surprised you didn’t include a good pocketknife, absolutely indispensable, I can’t even do without one in my pocket day to day. A good quality, solid knife made with good steel is the Ontario Rat 1 with D2 steel, if anyone needs suggestions. About 35 bucks for one that’ll last you forever. Otherwise very comprehensive 👍



  11. Vincent Cheval on August 3, 2019 at 2:05 am

    Tourniquet and/or pressure dressing. Gotta be able to stop serious bleeding. If going light, a triangle bandage can suffice as an improvised tourniquet or sling/swathe



  12. Matt Curry on August 3, 2019 at 2:07 am

    Great vid. In regards to lightweight first aid gear. Including women’s sanitary pads and tampons is ideal. Used as heavy wound dressings they are ideal, weigh nothing and take up hardly any room.



  13. Roost Fezza on August 3, 2019 at 2:08 am

    Always spark plug, sometimes two, and a spark plug spanner that fits your bike easily. And the essential duct tape, small roll. Plus any spare that particular to your bike that you need (levers, clutch perch). To save weight dont take as many tools. A small adjustable spanner can handle a lot.



  14. MrShaniqua42 on August 3, 2019 at 2:09 am

    I like to have extra spark plugs and a motion pro bead buddy with the tire irons ! Great vid !



  15. Chris Allomong on August 3, 2019 at 2:09 am

    Don’t fall with that bag on man. With that camo on nobody would ever see you if you were laying on the floor face down 😂



  16. Boceifus Medlin on August 3, 2019 at 2:14 am

    A tourniquet is a lightweight lifesaver



  17. Tyler Parcell on August 3, 2019 at 2:17 am

    You should make a link to RMatv. And list of the products



  18. Albert Tran on August 3, 2019 at 2:21 am

    Small water bottle caps always come off during bumpy ride. Then the water leaks out. Love hydration bladder or big, hard water bottles for offroading



  19. patrick R on August 3, 2019 at 2:25 am

    You should include some Israeli bandages they’re really great for compression



  20. L Regoso on August 3, 2019 at 2:25 am

    A Space Blanket, it is light and small and cheap.  If someone is hurt and laying on the ground it may be a while for help to arrive.  It may delay going into shock.  20 of them for $16. on Amazon, give them to other riders in your group.



  21. Mike Owens on August 3, 2019 at 2:26 am

    Kyle, where did you pick up these tool packs? Is this something you had to piece together yourself?



  22. M on August 3, 2019 at 2:26 am

    Next video should be "what are some good trail bags?" (unless that already is a video, please direct me to it). My jansport book bag from college should probably be upgraded.



  23. Corporate Robot Slave on August 3, 2019 at 2:27 am

    Just a friendly FYI: "What’s most frightening about these findings is the fact that the increased risk of heart attack or stroke does not need to build up over time. You incur a 20 to 50% greater risk of dying from a stroke or heart attack the first time you take Ibuprofen."  article here:   http://healthscamsexposed.com/2018/01/the-dangers-of-ibuprofen/   I am a disabled rider, started dirt biking a couple yrs ago for physical rehab, so I am VERY familiar with pain management.  Tip: CBD / Hemp oil is legal and available nationwide now.  Thank you, President Trump.  Peace.



  24. Thumbgas on August 3, 2019 at 2:27 am

    Nice vid,any update on the shipping on the T-shirt?been two weeks



  25. Tyler Whitmore on August 3, 2019 at 2:27 am

    Super glue if you get cut is light and easy to carry. That JB weld has saved many days for me and my buddy’s.



  26. Sean Kulstad on August 3, 2019 at 2:28 am

    SAM Splint (packs nicely where ever your water bladder is) and Quik clot.



  27. GB Y on August 3, 2019 at 2:28 am

    Great video! One trick with the hydration bladder, you can blow air into the bladder to increase pressure, then use it as a “water hose” to irrigate a fresh wound. May i also suggest some Tylenol/acetaminophen. In case of a head injury, you wouldn’t want to use a drug like ibuprofen because it can thin the blood a little (thinking in terms of an intracranial bleed from head injury).



  28. techniq on August 3, 2019 at 2:29 am

    A spare master link for a broken chain



  29. Joz Sports on August 3, 2019 at 2:30 am

    I carry that plus an extra spark plug and oil riding my two stroke



  30. Tim Joseph on August 3, 2019 at 2:30 am

    I’d be curious what your "long day" pack weighs. Does your back ever act up with carrying that amount of weight all day? It would be nice if that took kit could be mounted somewhere on the bike IMO.



  31. Tyler James on August 3, 2019 at 2:32 am

    Gauze and some tape should be good enough for anything



  32. Dalton Michaels on August 3, 2019 at 2:32 am

    Sit in your garage one night and take your carburetor all the way off and disassemble it down to the jets , front and back wheels off , chain , air filter , spark plug, and power valve all off the bike. As you grab a new tool set it in a pile. try to use sockets that all use the same drive like 1/4" or 3/8" drive , take all those tools and put them in a pack with you. I can’t imagine needing anything more than that. it’s not like you can replace parts on the trail you don’t have, so you only need to take tools for things you can actually do. like cleaning out a fuel bowl , adjusting the float , tightening the chain , swapping out a spark plug. I used to carry a spare spark plug , and extra jets , two sizes up and two sizes down even though i never felt the need to actually change them while in the middle of a ride. Water , first aid and food are other things i carry. I keep a spare chain ,tubes , and large tool kit in the truck with chain lube ,brake fluid, carb clean, and a few extra random nuts and bolts of different lengths. A Lot of the bolts on newer bikes are the same thread pitch and diameter , keeping just two or three spare bolts makes a big difference. And lock tight everything!



  33. Z Shark on August 3, 2019 at 2:33 am

    Valve stem tool



  34. Benjamin Carreon on August 3, 2019 at 2:34 am

    Check out Adventure Medical Kits. They’re packed well with important items and the kits are compact, lightweight, and waterproof. I keep their 0.5 kit in my pack for everyday use (4oz). http://www.adventuremedicalkits.com/medical-kits/ultralight-watertight/ultralight-watertight-5.html



  35. partsguy1516 on August 3, 2019 at 2:35 am

    I personally take a tourniquet on every ride, just in case. maybe some quikclot and pressure bandage



  36. Brian Wiechman on August 3, 2019 at 2:36 am

    I would add a small LED flashlight in too, for those longer days of riding.



  37. Dougie P on August 3, 2019 at 2:39 am

    As you ride new dirt bikes mostly, those kits are fine, I would add some wire and a knife and maybe 100mh tape and a small torch. Maybe a triangle bandage for 1st aid but you can cut up a t shirt or other clothing with the knife to use as bandages in a emergency situation. Some people carry way too much.



  38. Juan Rios on August 3, 2019 at 2:40 am

    I put a bottle of engine ice which is half a gallon and I fill it with gas firsts nicely



  39. Old Dirtbiker on August 3, 2019 at 2:41 am

    Good kit!  Might add some duct tape and baling wire in small amounts.  The best addition by far to the medical kit would be some left over Hydrocodone (Norco) if you are lucky enough to have a prescription at some time (perhaps from let’s say a knee surgery?).  It is a powerful effective pain killer for those injuries that hurt so much you want to puke, but won’t get you so incapacitated that you can’t ride back.  Get rehabbed, Kyle!



  40. Jdl 77 on August 3, 2019 at 2:45 am

    Kyle, what brand is that tire iron with all the different nut sizes for wheel removal – I think you said it had 27mm, 32mm, maybe a 17mm – I’d like to get one of those. Thanks, hope the knee is healing well!



  41. Archie Jacobsen on August 3, 2019 at 2:46 am

    Hey, I’m just wondering where you got the power valve adjuster from.



  42. Miguel Villasenor on August 3, 2019 at 2:49 am

    Almost what i have in my pack, but You can make it lighter, You have to add silicón self fusing tape for radiator hoses, a spark plug, Chaín máster link, a good multitool and Paracord, we have use it to tow Bikes. Hope You recover soon.



  43. FatHead970 on August 3, 2019 at 2:50 am

    For first aid, head to any outdoor store(except REI, cause they hate dirt bikers) and get a kit. They come in different sizes depending how thorough you want to be.



  44. CaptainPetrolburner on August 3, 2019 at 2:52 am

    Spare spark plug?



  45. Muddy Bottom on August 3, 2019 at 2:53 am

    you forgot to pack a rolled joint



  46. Daniel Edlund on August 3, 2019 at 2:53 am

    Nice video👍 Here in Sweden me and my friends never bring so much things. But a clutch lever is one of the most important spare part for me.



  47. Adam Batchelder on August 3, 2019 at 2:53 am

    I carry all that and a 2 meter radio, revolver, sometimes a GPS, a full small first aid kit space blanket, trash bag. Tire irons and a tube on long rides. Than in the air box I keep a small bottle of mix and some cash just in case



  48. 250race on August 3, 2019 at 2:54 am

    Hey Kyle I entered to win that bike I purchased a hat and it never came. I live in Galt California how do I get that hat?



  49. MrJohnnaz on August 3, 2019 at 2:54 am

    Nuts and bolts, duct tape and wire.



  50. Falcone Moto on August 3, 2019 at 2:55 am

    I know this might sound silly but in your pack , always keep a headlight light, you know the ones you wear around your forehead? They weigh almost nothing, you never know if you are gonna be stranded in the dark. Another thing I always keep, lighters in my pack, and fire starter kindle, you can buy Fire starter Balls, they are the size of a gum ball and are made of wax and kindle and they weigh NOTHING, again. You never know if you will need to start a fire for any reason. Have fun out there everyone!!!
