Im about to take my 07 450 out for my 1st trail ride. What are the essential tools and spare parts I should carry?

Ours has been pretty reliable compared to the Rzr's we ride with. I have not yet had an issue on the trails. I would throw a spare in the buggy and at least something to change it with. If you are riding with multiple people see what tools they have and compare so you all aren't carrying multiple things. A pressure washer filled with water to clean your radiator for sure, overheating has been my only issue on the trail I have ever had. Plenty of ice for the cooler too ;)

I would carry a small tool box with the basic tools , electric tape ,duck tape , zip ties , and fuses .. as well as posted above water , but I would add a qt of oil and if you don't have a winch bring a comealong .

To add to this ^^^^

A tow strap, tire plugs, spare belt (and tools needed to change). I also bring a compact backpacking cook kit, spare food & water, and a tarp for an emergency shelter/wind block/vapor barrier. A piece of tyvek also makes for a light, compact and durable ground cloth.

So basically the Boy Scout 10 essentials? Lol

A good knife has lots of uses. A small 12v air compressor can be very handy. It has been said before, but water is probably the most important as there are a number of things you may want water for: Drinking, washing, coolant, etc. A jack is not only helpful for changing tires, but can be a handy tool for getting unstuck. A mobile phone and charger can save the day. I do a lot of riding where there is not phone coverage, but I have been lucky in that when I have had issues I have been able to walk to someplace (usually the top of a hill) with coverage. Although it is not something to bring, knowing where you are is a valuable piece of information. I once got high centered and had to call for help. I was able to give turn by turn directions from my house to where I was, but i could not have offered an alternative route to someone coming from another direction.
