    If you are to get more than 2-3 separate sockets, the cost will be almost like bying a set.

    Also, I think it's a good idea to get T25 and T30 with screwdriver handle.

    Spot on. There are a few on the LC that are actually a T27 (depending on the model variation)

    I use a 1/4 inch drive set comprising T10-T60 bits in both long and short shank. More than I need but handy to have anyway for other jobs. I also use a torque wrench in conjunction with those. That, a few cable ties, metric socket set, a few spanners and Allen key Tee-bit set cover most eventualities. If you do your own servicing, an oil filter wrench tool, coil pack remover, and one or two other bits and pieces cover most eventualities. I also have a touring pack set with the required Torx bits and a screw-driver handle plus mini ratchet wrench which all goes into it's own small little zipped bag which fits neatly under the luggage rack. Also carry a Gear Gremlins tyre puncture repair kit just in case, and one of the superbly made Rocky Creek Motopressor portable pumps. I use this in the garage when periodically topping up tyre pressures but it's also handy to chuck into the tankbag or top box when touring.

    For the bigger sized Torx T45,T50,T55 get some decent quality ones, as the footpegs and wheels etc are pretty tight, for the small ones hardly any torque is used, so you can use basically anything.
