List of extra tools and parts for touring with an 2014+ EFI rig

Woe unto you that bought the first model year of a major remake, perhaps this section can help address any 2014 and later model Ural "imperfections". Here's a special section for folks with the latest rigs to discuss 2014 and later model-related topics such fuel injection, 3-wheel disc brakes, hydraulic steering dampers, spin-on oil filters and other anomalies that don't belong on true Russsian motorcycle ;-P We've gone from using big hammers and greasy wrenches to needing computers and Ouija boards in order to fix our rigs.
Forum rules
Please keep this section specific to issues pertaining to 2014 and later models such as fuel injection, sidecar and rear disc brakes and so forth. Ask general or non-2014 and later specific questions in the main Hammerin' & Wrenchin' section.

Missing from the Ural Kit:
1. One thing I noticed that was not in the Ural tool Kit are Torx T30 & T40 bits for the rear pusher and sidecar brakes.
2. Second thing the Ural Kit did not have was the large Phillips head needed for the Starter (#3 or #4 size)

Where are there torx screws on the rear and sidecar brakes?

Yessir. High Security! Torx to deter the bad men from stealing my parts off the rig when I am in the pub re-fueling!

I see where the torx are, thanks. Doubt very much there would ever be a purpose to remove those out on the road.

How about on the sidecar brake?

with AAA you need to purchase their motorcycle towing service. $30 extra per year.

You said you don't have a spare wheel, but for those who do...

A friend of mine, on a 2015 Gear Up, once had a rear flat, which she was able to remove with the provided tools. The trouble was, the fasteners on the brake disk were secured with some kind of loc-tight, and the allen wrenches were not robust enough to break them loose. What was needed was an impact driver and a hammer. Fortunately, a stranger pulled over and offered to let us use his garage, only 5 minutes away, and he had those tools.

I now carry a BFH, along with an impact driver (the hand tool by the way, not the pneumatic tool) and bits. Just in case.

Similar thing happened to me. I have replaced the Allen wrenches with better quality pieces.

Torx screws on a Ural? Lawdy Lawdy say it ain't so... Them are a Merican or maybe Euro punk design so the assembly line robots can pick'em up easier(faster). Just can't see IMZ's low production assembly plant using expensive auto robots on their assembly line to save a buck? Never even seen an 015 Ural in person but my 014 has no robot screws on it.
Torx have nothing to do with assembly line robots picking them up. As the name implies, they're designed to allow more torque to be applied than a hex socket without rounding or camming out.

Think about the radial profile. The point of contact of the Torx fastener is 90 degrees to the angle of rotation. The point of contact of an Allen key is something like 150 degrees... that's what makes Allen heads so easy to round out, and why Torx is superior for applications where a small screw head needs relatively high operating torque.
