That was the first thing I took off of my bike. That thing is at least 3 pounds.

Today I got my solo seat cowl and it is lighter than the passenger seat too. Every little bit counts.

well it believe it or not its helped my friends out more than me. I helped me get out of a jam one day. I was riding and all of the sudden I started blowing my turn signal fuses. I pulled the front fairings off found that the front turn signal neutral had pushed up and was being grounded out. anyways im glad i had it

lose the can and the cat thats at least 17 pounds also keep the kit in there you may need it to fix the bike or use it to go upside someones head, alot of ppl use helmets but that cost too much so keep the tool kit handy

i took mine out, but only cause that's where the pcIII goes. i'd rather have left it, but for now i just hope nothing happens
I have a solo seat cowl and it has some headroom above the bracket inside. I am going to try to ziptie the toolkit to the top of the bracket in the space between it and the top of the cowl to see if it will fit there.

This would be the solution for when I get my PC. But yeah, there is no way the toolkit will fit with a PC

^^ I think it has to lay down in the middle.

And, oh, my little ziptie trick with the solo seat cowl doesn't work. The kit is too big.
