  • Low voltage fuses (10 amp, 5 amp ATC style)
  • High voltage fuses (ABC20A, ABC4A, ATM30 - see your official owners' manual)
  • Spare Drive Belt (especially on pre-2017 models)
    Pre-ordering a belt can save replacement delivery delays when or if a belt snaps.
  • Tire repair kit with the appropriate items to repair a tire (patch for tubes, plug for tubeless) and a pump or CO2 cartridge to refill the air.
