However, when you are on the side of the road with a bike that just died, it would be nice to have a few tools (like a spark plug wrench), even if they aren't the ones that you would normally use.

This is true, but you'd probably be even better off belonging to a breakdown service. I'm a member of Green Flag over here, and all Honda's get 2 years free breakdown recovery. You're more likely to damage things, than fix things with the tool kit that's supplied with the bike.

I can recall being very glad that I had a deepwell 8mm socket with the extensive tool kit that I carry on the dirt bike; it made removing the cover over the front sprocket far easier. I'm still not sure how I got a rock up on top of the sprocket, but, that's trail riding.

However, for my street bike, I do use the kit that Honda provided in the fall of 1988, when they shipped my bike to the USA, as my emergency roadside kit.

You can buy a 5 mm hex key at almost any hardware store... better yet, just buy a set of metric hex keys (aka "allen wrenches") as you will likely encounter fasteners which will require other sizes... 4 mm, 6 mm, and 8 mm are fairly commonly used sizes.

This is a really nice set, made by DeWalt: Hex Keys that fit properly

Bondhus is a another good brand to look for.
