EVERYTHING there's no such thing as being over prepared. Case and point last track day of last season my uncle thought he needed to bleed his brakes(lever kept fading) turns out he needed a rotor. Couldn't get it off without all the tools just saying

All the tools you can use for the bike... It's not that many when you get down to it..
Extra parts.. Rotors,case covers, rearsets, levers, spare bolts. Brake fluid,oil,carb cleaner, rvt, chain wax,Spare set of rims. probably some other random stuff. Have a tool cart from northern that we use.. 2 drawer with space on top and bottom for storage.

A full set of metric wrenches and sockets with doubles for some sizes like 12mm. A full set of metric allen wrenches, cutters, different types of pliers, hammer and punches, rachets, extensions, electrical tape, electrical connectors, small magnet, zip ties, files...you know the usual tools you would use to work on anything and if necessary fab on site. Then a full compliment of fluids, safety wire ectera. The rest is spare parts for those things that break if you go down.

I bring the top cabinet of my tool box, basically a full set of metric wrenches, sockets and allens, + pliers, screw drivers adjustable wrenches, cutters and other odd tools. spare parts (the ones that I have) tire pump, pressure gauge, lots of extra nuts and bolts. Tape (duct and electrical) and LOTS OF ZIP TIES.

fluid and lubricants.

things I don't have but need- brake bleeder, multimeter (volt meter), an easy out and tap set would come in handy.

you probably will not need any standard size tools, but i didn't feel like taking mine out (since i was just bringing my whole box)

Everything I could possibly ever need and then some including an entire assortment of bike spares, backup safety gear and a first aid kit. I put a premium on the ability to take full advantage every race and/or track session.

I agree with all of the above....

Also bring Pry bars - all sizes. If you have a mapp torch htat too. Helps with bent levers.

All bikes are fast, it's the rider that holds them back.

Knowing your lines and being smooth will let the animal out of the cage.....

All of the above of course...zip ties are clutch and duck tape is priceless. JB weld for those leaks and lunch time fixes.

In all seriousness bike spares from clip ons to rearset parts are a must and hand controls are the next step from there. Everyone at the track has been very helpfull when things do go wrong so Ive seen people pull together and get a bike back together when it counts.
