OK, so I now am in possession of a GRiSO, bought second hand. I note there is a tool space under the seat, but, mine came with no tools at all. So my question is what do you guys carry as standard tools for the GRiSO: be specific if you like please, such as 13mm open end spanner, or 2x15amp spade bit fuses for example.

Darrell, always a good selection of the right fuses;

Tools: 8mm, 10mm, 11mm, 12mm, 13mm, 14mm, 17mm spanners (ring and Open end);
Allen keys2.5mm, 3mm, 4mm, 5mm, 6mm, 8mm - if you can find a decent 7mm key (good luck) it's handy for the front caliper bolts;
Spark plug spanner, pliers, philips head and flat head screwdrivers

most of this is standard fare, with the exception of the 7mm key.

most metric toolkits should have most of this anyway...

I also have a "Stop N Go" tyre repair kit and a small 12V compressor, some spare bolts and nuts, and a multi-meter. Oh and a phone.

Puncture repair kit and CO2 cylinders, (You can use NO ones if you like but your tyres might explode. Upside is if you run out of booze at a rally you can huff your tyres instead! Rolling Eyes )

Unless I'm 'Going away' I don't usually take anything. The factory tool kit was worthless shite anyway. If I'm going on a trip I may fling in a few bits and bobs but the truth of the matter is that if anything 'Serious' happens your going to be calling a towwie anyway.

Mind you knowing who worked on your bike anything could happen to it, (It was rollerised by the same bloke that did (Edit. It was Matt's bike I think.) bike.).

Other than the standard tool kit you won't get much in the under seat compartment.
The best  tool you can have is breakdown cover and a mobile phone.
If travelling  away from home Gaffer tape and zip ties are a good standby.
