How on earth is it that I had not heard of this? I have owned my bike for nearly 6 years and I never knew it had a tool kit and a compartment to hold stuff. I was told when I bought the bike ( new from the dealer ) that there were no tools and that the storage space was simply abysmal. I took it at face value and never bothered with it. I was doing a long overdue valve adjustment and some other mods so I took the back section of the bike apart. As I was beginning to put it back together I noticed that the little tray that I had always stuffed my Registration and hand warmers on had hinges. I looked a little more and realized it had a little latch type thing to hold it down. Pull up and what do you know, there is a set of tools and a HUGE ass area to put stuff..... Anyway, for those who don't know, now you know.
