Yes there is a tool kit however the tool kit I bought my 6 yr old grandson has more in it.
I made up my own to carry along and there are lots of good ideas on this board for storage.

Yep, the kit is in a small tube storage under the passenger side seat. Pull back the inboard plastic flap to find it. Its a very sparse set as David has indicated

the factory tool kit will remove 80% of everything on the pioneer (same as there atvs) and yes it is cheep but works if it ever brakes down and adding some vicegrips , wirecutters (i use them to remove barbed wire that gets wrapped around axles) and wetnaps (because **** happens)can make life a little easerer when broke down

Skorp, if I recall, I was fiddling with it when I was doing my oil change write up. I'm not sure it even has the right size to remove the filter cover.

so all in all. not a very good tool kit

maybe we should build our own list of recommended tools for a compact tool kit.

Just out of curiosity, how many of you are removing your cage and changing oil out on the trails?

I'm thinking the kit is for an emergency fix on the trail, not to help you do general maintenance.

I think the point we are making is. Don't depend on the supplied tool kit to work on your vehicle, in the shop or on the trail.

As Rich added, if it is a trail "fix kit" you'd be hard pressed to correct common issues with it, such as getting tangled in barb wire. How many fricken thousands of miles of that are just laying around? I know I have at least 20 locations on my property that I know about it.

I suggest everyone look over that kit. Add what you think you need, don't expect it to serve all purposes and then get out there to find out you'd be better off with a rock and a pointy stick.

yea it isn't there to change out axles and rebuild the top end on the trail ....it is there to limp you home incase something happens on the trail .....yes it needs more tools in the kit and you should add what YOU think you will need (i always took the factory kit out and replaced them with quality tools in a 4in pvc storage tube with thredded ends)
