Standard tool kit that KLR comes with, decent tyre levers, compressor, spare tubes, cable ties, duck tape and Q20.

You can always run a spare clutch cable on the bike and carry a spare clutch and brake levers

Put all your tools on the left of the bike, strip the bike as far as you dare to do, and the tools you used put them on the right of the bike, take only the tools on the right of the bike. Did you ever thought of that?

That is about me as well. Would add spare gear and rear brake lever does not take up much space if cable tied to bike. Broke my gear lever, due to certain choices made on a recent trip. Make sure your plug spanner can loosen the plug. Tricky space inside there
