Any good compact tool kits for bikes?

This morning i was looking at the included toolkit that came with my zx6r and needless to say they are rather crappy. Are there any better kits out there that might fit under the seat or am i just going to have to make my own? Secondly, if i have to make my own, any opinions on what to include would be appreciated.

Depends what you expect it to do. I have this cool little mini emergency tool kit which is kinda like a Swiss Army Knife. It has the real basic stuff needed for the nuts, bolts and screws. If you want more, like a tire patch kit, etc, you're gonna have to probably put together your own.

basic list i would have is
small allen wrench set
8 and 10 mm wrench or socket
pliers
screwdrivers phillips and flat head
zipties
water weld
tire plugs
small air comp if you have a tank bag

this is the basics and will pretty much handle anything the road throws at you

for the tire plugs/air comp...CG sells a small pouch that takes up very little room in the tail and has plugs and co2 cartridges and an adapter to use to air up your tire til you can reach air or a service station.
