Hi I don't know your bike specifically, but essentially the rule of thumb is to have a spare tube ( a 21" will get you out of trouble for a front or rear puncture), 3 buzzetti tyre levers (or 2 buzzetti + 1 motion pro light weight lever with the other end your wheel nut spanner size). A set of allen keys / spanners to access your battery, fuses, possibly a spark plug spanner and spare plug (more relevant on a 2T than a 4T). A few cable ties of various sizes and some gaffa tape (wind it around one of your levers). A couple of spare fuses, a spare chain link and a sense of humour! However if you are following the TRF guidelines and not riding alone, you can keep the weight down by sharing tools with your fellow riders.
I would also suggest a Kreiga US 5 or US 10 tailback to hold all the bits securely and waterproof.

Good luck and enjoy

Buy a chain riveting tool then you don't need a spare splint link, saves on weight ;)

I seriously hope you didn't buy my old Cami which I chopped in (YE14 **Z) - It was an unsafe heap of crap.

Having got away with punctures for four years, but always carrying a front innertube...I can say that a 21" front, MAY get you home when put in the back ,depending on how far away you live....I got mousses...(3 front tubes in a back tyre in 3 hours) ....
