This is a follow up on my "A Bit Torxed" Topic.

OK, I get it. Torx is a better way to go. So now it's a question of having the necessary tools on hand. Has anyone compiled a list of the types and sizes of bolt and screw heads found on a modern Vespa? I see no reason to carry complete sets of bits around if only a couple of different sizes are used. So far on my scooter I've found the following:
Torx T25 on Knee Pads and Battery Cover
5mm Allen on various bolts
10mm Hex on various bolts
#2 Phillips on battery terminals

I'm thinking of sizes/types to be carried for emergencies, not for shop work. Who can add to the list?

A number of lists have developed on tools, one in a recent CB thread. Several stand alone threads with lists, but I failed at a quick find.

Here are a few to get you going. They aren't specifically what you're talking about, but certainly good for putting together a kit to carry.

Hey guys, I really wan't trying to beat the dead horse of the tool kit question. I know that's been discussed ad infinitum. I'm only thinking of bolt and screw head types and sizes.

Yes, more than less, but you qualify your response as limited to "pre-torx" models. I have a 2013 model with torx all over the place. That's what prompted me to post about torx in the first place.

Okay. I rescind my previous post, then. Please consider me unable to assist you further.

Wish I would have copied that list last night.
