Whenever a new UTV hits the market and we get our hands on it, we sit down and go over every nut and bolt to see what tools are needed to work on it. You can use this list to make your own DIY tool kit. Keep in mind, many of the larger fasteners such as the shock and suspension bolts require a wrench and a socket, so pack both.  A good adjustable wrench will suffice for emergency tie rod adjustments, so there’s no need to add the 24mm, 29mm and 36mm wrenches to an onboard kit.

Also since there is limited space around some of the suspension bolts, a good ratcheting wrench (21mm) will save a bunch of busted knuckles.


Super ATV Tool Roll

Or better yet, the Super ATV Ultimate Tool Kit has 99-percent of the tools needed to make trailside repairs on the Maverick R. To make your kit perfect for the the Maverick R, we suggest adding a 21mm ratcheting combination wrench and a 30mm socket as well as the appropriate socket for your lug nuts.

Maverick R Tools

Another suggestion, is to carry your tool roll inside a waterproof container or dry bag. There’s nothing worse finding out your tools have been sitting there rusting between rides. Nelson Rigg makes an extra thick, 10 liter, Hurricane Dry Roll Bag perfect for carrying a took kit. Nelson Rigg makes tool kits and sells empty tool rolls as well.  Keep your tools out of the weather, you will thank us later.
