What Tools, Spares and Accessories Will You Need?
Royal Enfield Common Spare Parts and Tools
The following spares I would not travel without...
2 x rear spokes - We kept these to ensure we had spares when spokes broke, although we never fitted them. We got it done for R.10 on the side of the road.
1 x clutch cable,
1 x front brake cable,
1 x throttle cable,
1 x chain link,
1 x small sachet of grease,
1/2 - 1 litre of engine oil for topping up.
Make sure you get the right oil, someone along the way will try give you the most expensive oil that will not be suitable.
Estimated cost R.200.

1 x small hammer,

It's always a good idea to get a solid chain and lock, although Royal Enfield theft is not common in India. For a relatively small cost it gives you peace of mind.
Rough cost R.200.
For some of the best motorcycle routes in India (probably even the world) head for the hills towards Kerala and Tamil Nadu's hill stations in the Western Ghats mountains.
